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.

No maintenance and the fairway is full of long grass and rough . The greens are bumpy and full of long grass and holes. All in all, a substandard course though the scenery can be good if it is well maintained.

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

The course layout is good, but the quality of the fairways and the greens were fair to average. What bothered me was that the confirmation we paid for and received online was to include a private caddie as well as the golf cart. When we finished the round, the caddies insisted that we pay them each 200,000 Rupiah. I went to the pro shop to deal with this but they also did not help, so we ended up having to pay the additional caddie fees. Not at all what I expected. While the caddies were polite and helpful, they did not know the yardages well (luckily I had my Garmin S2 to give us accurate yardages.

Course is in need of some money for maintenance. Travelled 2 hours to get there going of the photos provided on Facebook and Golfscape. Caddie was really excellent and the greens were well maintained but the fairways and tee boxes were downright ordinary.
