Bali Handara Golf and Country Club
Desa Pancasari, Bedugul, Bali, Indonesia
Description :The Bali golf course is set in the lush highlands of Bali and nestled in the crater of a volcano in the mountains of Bedugul at an altitude of 1,142 meters above sea level; a 2 hour drive from Nusa Dua and 1 hour from Ubud. It must be one of the most astonishing golf courses on Bali if not around all of South East Asia. From the low coastal regions the road to the golf course winds around traditional Balinese villages, rice paddies and ascends towards the volcanic mountains.
The 18-hole Par 72 championship golf course was designed by five times British Open Champion Peter Thompson along with design associates Michael Wolveridge and Ronald Fream in 1974.
The resort is surrounded by lush green mountains, crater lakes and an equatorial rain forest, which creates dramatic backdrops for tee shots and approach shots into the well maintained bentgrass greens. Another unique characteristic of this world-renowned golf resort is the year round coolness of the fresh mountain air (14-24C).
