Bali Golf

The island nation of Bali has long been a favourite golf holiday destination with Australians. With so many different parts of the island offering a huge variety of experiences, no two visits to Bali need be the same.

The same can be said about golf in Bali. The courses range from the Greg Norman designed coastline masterpiece of Nirwana to the Bali Handara Golf & Country Club - nestled in the crater of an extinct volcano at an altitude of 1142 meters above sea level. Both of these courses have ranked in the Top 50 courses in the world and are a must play for keen golfers visiting Bali. New Kuta Golf Course is located close to the airport and main tourist areas of Kuta and Jimbaran Bay. With greens perched hundreds of feet above the ocean, this spectacular golf course played host to the Indonesian Open in 2009 and offers multiple tee positions to challenge even the most skilled golfer.

With increasing numbers of travellers visiting Bali each year, flights are available every day from almost all of Australia’s main centres. Virgin Airlines, Jetstar and Garuda Airlines all offer competitive pricing and multiple flight times to cover most arrival and departure requirements. Plus, the short flight time means families can enjoy an international holiday without the stress of having to keep children occupied for long periods.

There are accommodations options available throughout Bali which will cater for all tastes and requirements. There are traditional hotels offering excellent rates for single, double and group bookings. Fully serviced villas, often with their own secluded pool, offer a quieter and more relaxing break and staying at any of Bali’s golf resorts mean that you are only ever a short cart ride from your next tee time.
