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 but many visitors are attracted here and for good reason: the laid-back lifestyle, sun-kissed beaches and some of the world’s most incredible ancient temples.
Indonesia has so much to offer and it 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 in the resort mould 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 once glorious Greg Norman layout at Nirwana Bali Golf Club, which is currently closed for a complete remodel.
But if you find yourself in Papua on the western half of New Guinea then you must check out Rimba Irian, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw’s remotest design, which is literally located in the middle of a rainforest jungle.
