Bali Golf and Country Club offers players three
different environments throughout the course. The 6,839 total
yardage (6,314 meters) is 72 par. The first nine holes play
inland and uphill, through dense tropical vegetation, providing
magnificent views of the Nusa Dua tourism enclave below, and
on a clear day, the distant mountains. Course architects Robin
Nelson and Rodney Wright, of Hawaii,incorporated low, hand-built
stone walls to terrace the fairways and tee boxes, emulating
rice fields in the countryside.
Holes 10 through 16 follow gently sculpted
fairways through a mature cooconut grove. The palms, some
as tall as 100 feet ( 31 meters 0, provide vertical definition
for the course. The last set of holes, 17 and 18, are seaside.
The former plays out to the beach and blue Indian Ocean, usually
into the wind, while the latter plys back from the beach to
the club house, along a 16-acre lake.
Inaugurated in 1991, the course in 1994 hosted
the Alfred Dunhill Masters, with Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomery,
and the Johnny Walker Skins, with Ian Woosnam and Vijay Singh.
Club facilities include a driving range, two putting greens
and a chipping practice green. Caddies and carts are required,
and the cart cooler box is stocked with beverages. The Clubhouse
has a bar and restaurant. Two half-way cafes serve light meals.
Locker rooms have showers and changing facilities. A pro shop,
spa and 27-yard (25-meter) swimming pool complete facilities.
