Indonesia

Almost 18,000 islands make up the country of Indonesia and the island of Java is one of the most populated regions in the world. The geology of Indonesia subjects these islands to the greatest volcanic activity on earth. Nevertheless Indonesia attracts many visitors and for good reason, people, lifestyle, beaches, volcanoes and some of the world’s most incredible ancient temples. Indonesia has so much to offer and will definitely satisfy all types of travellers with its rich and gentle culture. Indonesia really is a heavenly place on earth.

With almost 150 golf courses to choose from, Indonesia is also a heavenly place for golfers. Many of the courses are world-class with the majority of foreign golfers heading for the tropical island of Bali where there are five very good 9-hole and 18-hole layouts, including the glorious Greg Norman layout at Nirwana Bali Golf Club. We can think of nowhere else in the world where we would rather tee it up. But if you find yourself in Papua on the western half of New Guinea check out Rimba Irian, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw’s remotest design, which is literally located in the middle of a rainforest jungle.

Jagorawi (New)

10th Indonesia Ranking

The New course at Jagorawi Golf & Country Club is a good bit longer than its older sibling but it’s also a little wider and more forgiving, allowing big hitters to let loose with the driver.
