Hawaiian natives Robin Nelson and Rodney Wright came to Indonesia to design the par 72 eighteen for the Bali National Golf Club, and Nick Faldo set the course record 63 when he clinched the 1994 Alfred Dunhill Masters. Situated in the resort enclave of Nusa Dua in the south of Bali, the course offers a variety of teeing options (6888 down to 5208 yards). The opening nine are difficult and picturesque, working their way up along tropical ravines, and afford views of nearby Mount Agung and views of the Indian Ocean. The back nine feature nicely contoured fairways fringed with palms. The ocean and beach the final two holes, lapping either side of the 17th fairway, and giving way to a large pond by the clubhouse on the 18th. The service and upkeep is all first class, and the golfing experience here remains unsurpassed anywhere in the country.

The design of holes here is very mixed in a good way, there are an excellent blend of long and short holes especially in the par 4's. The condition of the course is second to none but unless you are used to playing in hot and humid Asian courses, make sure you head to the range first! The grass around the greens is very very sticky and any hesitant chip or deceleration will result in a the grass grabbing your club and a mishit. As well as that, if you bounce the ball short of a green, the ball will not roll like a links or even a hard parkland. The fringes just grab the ball and it took me some holes to realise this. The greens were very receptive and of such an excellent quality and trueness that I never felt more confident on my putting. I like to tell myself that I am a good green-reader so as soon as I had the line, I needed to only breathe on the putt and it would hold its line and head for the hole. Best hole on the front is the par 5 7th; slight dogleg right with a stunning vista of the ocean beyond and Nusa Penida Island beyond. There are some very well placed bunkers to catch your layup and beyond the green is no good. The front 9 holes are more treelined and actually if you miss a fairway, its a lost ball. No chance. The back 9 is based around a huge bunker and the holes play around and across the vast sand like it was a lake. Very different but still very good holes. A word absolutely has to go to the female caddies, my one was Farah, and to say they are caddies is an understatement. Now, I am not used to having a caddie, actually only ever had one in my life and he was late so didnt turn up until hole 5, but Farah did absolutely everything for me; from teeing the ball up on the tee to my preferred height, to running in front of me to my ball so that she has a yardage ready for me, to even lining up some of my putts! They are absolutely amazing and are surprisingly knowledgable about the greens. If you have any doubts, ask them and then just swing the putter back and forward and you'll be pleasantly surprised. They ride on the back of your buggies and are very giggly and playful with each other yet when you are playing, they switch to professional mode and focus. One of the best things was that it was evident they have an unspoken match between themselves regarding their players; when I make a birdie my caddie was happy and the other one boo-ed! All in jest but its a nice thing when you hit a good shot and they both stand and applaud you! This is not a club at all, but a great golf course that is well maintained and once you get used to having a caddie do absolutely all she can for you and call you, "Mr. Nick, or Mr. Bogey" if you get more than two bogeys in a row, you will not have a bad thing to say about this course.
