Bali is a supreme golf holiday destination, claiming “One of Asia’s 5 Best Golf Courses” and “One of the 50 Greatest Holes in the World. (Maybe because that signature hole overlooks the sacred Tanah Lot Temple?)
Not a low handicapper or golf pro? No worries. Across Bali there are also easy and medium-challenging courses, so there are ways to play a round for every level of player.
If you stay on Bali’s west coast near Seminyak, Kuta or Umalas, you won’t be far from Nirwana Bali Golf Club. (The closest accommodations that are gay owned and operated are Moon Villas, Tamu Seseh Villas and Villa Elanora .)

The 18-hole golf course is one of the most photographed in the world. The signature hole overlooks Bali’s unique temple-on-an island. If you hit a ball that far off course, wait till sunset to retrieve it. The sacred Tanah Lot is a tourist and photographer’s hit at dusk.
Aesthetically beautiful, the Bali Beach Golf Course is an easy 9 holes set admist mature trees, native flora, and water features . It is located in the popular tourist resort of Sanur, not far from Seminyak accommodations Chandra Luxury Villas and Villa Turkuaz.
The course has a night driving range which is a great place to ward off the effects of jet lag if you come straight from the nearby airport. Before you head to the 19th hole, you can have your swing computer analyzed and viewed by the expert staff or book a short-game lesson.
