Handara Golf & Resort Bali is a mountain golf resort located near Bedugul with a world-class difference. The first golf & country club resort to open in Bali was voted by Golf Magazine as 'One of the 50 Greatest Golf Courses in the World.’ Course founder, Ibnu Sutowo (1914-2001) named it after his youngest daughter, Handara. The Ibnu Sutowo Senior Open is held at the course every year in memory of Ibnu’s remarkable legacy.

What makes Handara Golf so unique is its location in the central highlands of Bali, at an altitude of 1,142 meters above sea level, making it the coolest golf course in Bali with temperatures ranging from 14 to 24 Celsius. Nestled inside the crater of an extinct volcano, the views offer lush green mountains, crater lakes, and equatorial rain forests. The abundance of natural beauty creates scenic backdrops for a round at one of the best golf courses in Bali. There is also a driving range, a practice pitching area, and two practice putting greens to warm up before your game.

The 18-hole, par-72 championship Handara golf course was masterfully designed by five time British Open champion Peter Thomson as well as Michael Wolveridge and Ronald Fream. Visitors can enter the course through the stunning Balinese Handara gate and are greeted by flame-of-the-forest trees. The trees are distinguished by their fiery bright orange-red flowers. The second hole at Handara Golf & Resort Bali is the first par-3 at the resort and arguably the most difficult with bunkers on both the front left and right. Mount Lesung is the incredible mountain you look towards once reaching hole 8. The earliest known Bali temples can be explored by the shore of the crater lake at the summit. You can trek up to the top of Lesung and spot the deer that inhabit the mountain.

For nature lovers, there are many local attractions surrounding this Bali golf course that can be explored and experienced in a few hours including the Bali Treetop Adventure Park, trekking or strawberry picking. You can also explore the Bali Botanical Gardens at Kebun Raya Eka Karya, play water sports on Lake Bratan, or feed the mischievous Bedugal Monkeys.

It’s been 30 years between playing at this great course. It’s still as good as game as I remember.  The fairways are a bit long though.  Really enjoyed the day

Very nice coarse but some areas of the coarse need a little maintenance, fir example pathways and tracks, but the greens were nice. Ladies hire clubs could be updated, caddies were helpful.  We will come back

Course ok, caddy very kind, at the end I had no choice about golf clubs, and I had to pay for the caddy minimum of 150000 idr extra, buying balls and a glove. Plus Taxi was an expensive day .

It has been 30 years since we played there last. The fairways and cart paths are in terrible shape and the club house is very run down. A real shame for a course in a beautiful location

1: We‘ve been only three players instead of four, because one of our children was ill, and we didn’t get the money back for this player  2: the clubs were maybe 10-15?years old and were damaged or had no grips 3: we had to start at tee 15!!!! 4: the Golfclub and the Fairways and Greens and pathways were in a very bad condition !! No one took care about all the facilities  5: it was the worst experience we ever had on a golfcourse in the world!! It was a disaster!!!
