About New Kuda Golf Club

New Kuda Golf Club - Opened in 2008, New Kuta Golf made an immediate and lasting impression on the southern Bali golf scene, which has long attracted thousands of tourists but provided relatively few golfing options. This 18-hole gem immediately provided a world-class course to serve the popular destinations of Jimbaran Bay and Dreamland Beach. Indeed, the course was good enough to host the Asian Tour’s Indonesian Open in February 2009, less than 12 months after opening.

One wonders why it took so long to develop golf on a property so spectacularly suited to the task. The climate here is a bit different from much of Bali — it’s semi-arid in comparison, and the vegetation perfectly complements the layout’s links-style design. The par-72, 6,812-yard layout accentuates this links feel with native grasses, vegetation and just a handful of trees bordering its seashore paspalum fairways, tees and roughs. The greens are planted with smooth-rolling ultradwarf Bermudagrass.

Designed by Golfplan, the front nine plays away from the sea, into gentle uplands marked by ridges and rock outcroppings. The par-5 2nd hole is a roller-coaster ride of undulations, punctuated by a green that falls off steeply into a gulch. The back nine at New Kuta plays downhill to the Indian Ocean, where white limestone cliffs (some 60 meters high) separate golfers from the sunbathers and surfers on Balangan Beach. Holes 14 to 16 — all of which play along the cliff-edge — are among the most picturesque in world golf. Totally exposed to the ocean winds, they're also among the most demanding.

The elegant par-5 18th finishes (as does the 9th) just a few yards from the shaded patio serving New Kuta’s magnificent clubhouse, where the formidable Links Restaurant & Bar (and the club’s dedicated spa) make it an ideal place to relax after the round.

New Kuta Golf also sets itself apart with a commitment to game improvement. The Golf Academy Bali (GCB) was opened here in January 2013 under the direction of British PGA professional Neil Douglas. With its covered, grass driving range, expansive short-game area, and 9000-square-foot putting green, New Kuta’s facilities are state of the art. Douglas’ fully credentialed GCB staff is equipped to provide individual and group instruction, along with video swing analysis, custom club fitting and equipment checks.
