If you were ever going to find the mindfulness to play the perfect round, Bali golf courses might be a good place to start the spiritual journey of discovery. With its western approach to golf and eastern philosophy of its people, Bali is more than just a paradisiac setting – but a state of mind. One of 18,000 islands of the archipelago of Indonesia, the volcanic landscape of Bali and natural beauty of the island’s topography makes golf Bali truly a once in a lifetime visit.
Bali is supernatural with a subtle sense of the sublime. Golf courses customarily wind through rice paddy fields, past temples of worship, and across ocean coves where waves crash on the lava rock below. The traditional philosophy for life on the island is Tri Hita Karana, meaning harmony among people, environment, and spiritual belief. Golf in Bali is an opportunity for you to get away from the stress of everyday life, focus your mind, and play to the best of your ability on world-class golf courses. The intricate designs of golf courses in Bali provide diverse and challenging layouts to test your game.
Bali is located just south of the equator, having a warm and tropical climate that makes it a huge draw for tourists. Average year-round temperatures hover around 30°C with a consistent humidity level that is offset by an ocean breeze. The dry season from June through September also happens to be the high season when most visitors from the southern hemisphere migrate north to escape the cold winters in Australia and New Zealand.
Three club head winds are the norm, and swirling conditions over three-foot putts will test every aspect of your scoring ability. Your concentration is always under examination as well with beautiful surroundings that can provide a good distraction for your game. While the pictures are certainly gorgeous, nothing compares to being there in person and experiencing first hand what golf in Bali offers.
The oldest of the Bali golf courses is Handara Golf & Resort Bali, nestled in the rainforest highlands and shadow of Mount Batur. Nirwana Bali Golf Club offers Indian Ocean views and the Tanah Lot Temple to explore on the property after your round of golf. New Kuta, Bali National, and Bukit Pandawa courses are located on the Bukit Peninsula with easy access to the Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Most notably, Bukit Pandawa is the newcomer on the golf Bali scene with a unique set of Par 3 holes to challenge every playing ability. Rounds can be completed in a couple of hours that leave you the entire afternoon to enjoy other beach activities or nature walks on the peninsula.
If you can afford the expense, the best Bali golf courses accommodation can be found at Bali National. The seven fully appointed villas overlook the picturesque 17th and 18th holes at Bali National, with each villa accommodating four persons or more depending on your traveling golf party. Splurge with your own dedicated chef and personal butler. It will shave a few strokes off your game.
