  • Nirwana Bali Golf Course in Bali

    Scenic Championship Golf Course at Tanah Lot


    Nirwana Bali Golf Course is one of Bali’s most beautiful, seamlessly integrated with the tropical gardens of the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort, and with one of the island’s most iconic temples as part of its seascape. Three cliff-side holes enjoy views with the iconic Tanah Lot sea temple nearby as part of its stunning ocean backdrop. Even so, the 18-hole golf course is also one of the most challenging, with a slope rating of 134-146.

    Designed by professional Aussie golfer Greg ‘The Shark’ Norman, and opened in mid-1997, Nirwana Bali Golf Course makes for pleasant golf cart rides from hole-to-hole, at times crisscrossing bridges and creeks throughout the resort’s lush landscape. The setting is a superb balance between green terraced paddies, colourful flower gardens and the blue sky and ocean. Stay-and-play packages are available for Pan Pacific guests, as well as unlimited golfing packages for outside guests.

  • Among the challenging holes at Nirwana Bali Golf Course is the cliff-top Hole 13, which requires focus and skill with every swing, against ocean winds for the most part. Another is Hole 14, a short one with more options but surrounded by open rolling surf and with a rocky beach to another cliff-top putting surface. And then there’s the signature clifftop-to-clifftop par-3 Hole 7, the most dramatic with Tanah Lot in the near distance. Still, you need to drive strong and long and against the gusts.

    Beginners can also practice some swings at an adjacent driving range on the eastern side of the resort. Don’t be surprised of the occasional sightings of local wildlife out on the field, such as herons, kingfishers and even monitor lizards roaming free – it’s practically blended well with their natural habitat. Before and after golfing, the Nirwana Bali Golf Clubhouse serves as your main base, with fine views over Holes 1, 5 and 9 from its huge open-plan Golfers Terrace restaurant.

    The clubhouse also houses locker rooms and a Pro Shop that showcases a wide range of high-performance golf equipment and top-quality clothing items and merchandise. Complimentary drinks are provided and friendly and professional Balinese caddy girls make your day out on the course worthwhile, as they can assist with club selections, course strategies and even some tips and insights into the local knowledge throughout your tour.

    An unlimited golfing package inclusive of greens, carts and caddies start from USD 215 (IDR 2,995,000). You can rent golf clubs and shoes here with selections of Titleist and King Cobra sets in all specifications (from USD 50), as well as Footjoy shoes in all sizes for men and women (from USD 10). Pre-bookings are recommended.
