Bali - A Golfing Treasure!

Bali is a wonderful and relaxing destination for Australian tourists, however it is even more special for those wanting a tropical golfing experience.

Just 3 ½ hours flying time from Perth, and a range of low cost and full service airlines to choose from, Bali offers a convenient and affordable holiday destination like no other place.

The combination of warm, tropical weather, a great choice of simple to luxury accommodation, beautiful beaches and a friendly local culture make for a pleasurable time on this island paradise. Throw in some great golf courses and you will be returning to Bali with your golf clubs on a regular basis.

There are four international standard golf courses in Bali.

Pan Pacific Nirwana Resort

Located on the west coast of Bali next to one of the most sacred Balinese temples, Tanah Lot, the Nirwana Resort is a Greg Norman classic design. Winding your way through rice paddys to the ocean and back, Nirwana is the finest course in Bali, and one of Norman’s proudest course designs … a must play on any golfing visit.

New Kuta Golf Club

Located on the East coast of Bali in Pecatu, New Kuta has staged Indonesian PGA events over the years. With a links design, situated on the cliffs of Ulawatu and overlooking magnificent surfing beaches, you will feel challenged by this championship course.

Bali Handara

Set in the volcanic hills of Bedugal surrounded by lush green hills this is the oldest course in Bali. It takes some time to get there by road from the coast, however it is worth the effort to play this scenic and challenging course and see your golf ball fly in the higher altitude of the mountains.

Nusa Dua Golf Club

Currently closed for renovations and expected to be open early 2014, this course has been totally redesigned and will form an integral part of the new Shangri La Golf Resort. Nusa Dua will be a valuable addition to the top quality golf courses of Bali.
