About Bali Handara Golf and Country Club

Bali Handara Golf and Country Club -Few courses on Earth boast the exotic setting and pure golfing pedigree of Bali Handara Golf & Country Club. Situated in the island’s central highland region, Bali Handara takes up residence inside the crater of an extinct volcano, surrounded by the steep, lushly vegetated walls of the caldera and beside the crystal clear waters of Lake Buyan. At 1,142 meters above sea level, Bali Handara is highest golf course in all of Indonesia, a country blessed with dozens of tracks at significant altitude. There is simply no other golfing tableau quite like this one, anywhere.

Yet Bali Handara is more than mere eye candy. Opened in 1975 and designed by 5-time British Open Champions Peter Thomson, with his then partners Michael Wolveridge and Ron Fream, the 18 holes at Bali Handara were soon recognized by GOLF Magazine as “One of the 50 Greatest Golf Courses in the World”  —  a designation it held through the mid-1980s.

Signature holes abound on this 7,024-yards, par-72 layout, thanks to backdrops of equatorial rain forest, in every direction, and long views across the lake. Indeed, the elevation and resulting cool temperatures (14-24 C) allow for something completely anomalous to the tropics: the maintenance of fast-and-true bentgrass greens. The putting surfaces are a good metaphor for the challenge at Bali Handara: gorgeous but deceptively difficult.

Located some two hours north of Bali’s international airport and an hour north of Tanah Lot (home to Nirwana Bali GC), Bali Handara is a golf destination within a golf destination. The country club offers a wide variety of villas and bungalows, all with superior views of the golf course and Lake Buyan; some even sport fireplaces (something one doesn’t typically need in Indonesia). Bars and restaurants are available on site with the main dining room, The Kamandalu, serving International, Asian and Indonesian cuisine.
