Every golfer dreams of the perfect landscape to play and there is no doubt that the physical characteristics of the Nirwana Bali Golf Course are just that. Lying on Bali’s southwest coastline at Tanah Lot, Nirwana Bali Golf Club was designed by Greg Norman and opened in July 1997. The course is a 30 minute scenic drive from Kuta Beach, the Bali airport, and the capital city of Denpasar.
The golf course overlooks the Indian Ocean and weaves through rice terraces and towering palm trees. A 6805 yard par 72 championship golf course, it has been voted by Golf Digest and Asian Golf Monthly as the best golf course in Indonesia and best golf resort in Asia, respectively.
Nirwana Bali Golf Club reflects the natural beauty, spirituality and rich culture of Bali. It is a visual masterpiece of dramatic ocean views and lush Balinese landscapes. The Bali golf course offers a spectacular challenge and a unique world-class experience for golfers of all skill levels.
Nirwana Bali’s 18-hole golf course is one of the most photographed and challenging golf courses in the world. The breathtaking beauty of this course is highlighted by terraced rice fields forming some of the rough and strategically placed bunkers.
Three holes play atop the cliffs of the Indian Ocean with a famous Hindu temple protecting the course from the gods at sea. Hole 13 requires all a golfer’s skill and concentration as it plays along Indian Ocean cliff tops. Hole 14 is a dramatic par-3, with the ocean thundering below. The long 441 yard par-4 5th hole is the most spectacular and difficult. You have to drive from elevated teeing ground across the valley to a saddle-shaped fairway, which has three fairway bunkers on the left side and the aforementioned temple on the right. A second shot to the right side of the green is required to avoid landing in the large greenside bunker and setting up for any chance of par.
Other holes on the Nirwana course will test the accuracy and consistency of golf professionals while still be enjoyable for the average golfer. Four sets of tees ensure that the right challenge is available for golfers of all abilities.
Nirwana Bali boasts a luxurious Balinese style clubhouse with a restaurant, a halfway house, a fully stocked pro shop and exquisitely furnished locker rooms. Golf carts are compulsory and complimentary drink service is provided. The Bali golf club also has a grass driving range and full practice facilities are available to visiting Bali golfers.
Friendly and professional Balinese female caddies will greet you with a warm smile and assist with club selection and course strategy during your round.
