The Bali National Golf Course has three distinct playing environments, perfect for new and veteran players. Ranked as one of the best courses in Asia, the course offers lush scenery filled with tropical birds and vegetation alongside island and lake features. To further the luxurious experience, the Bali National Golf Club is also home to the Bali Golf Academy and several incredible facilities, from a Pro Shop to the Golfer’s Lounger and Terrace, which offers excellent cuisine.

Whether travelling in groups or alone, the Bali National Golf Villas are a perfect place to stay as they overlook the incredible 17th and 18th holes. To further the unprecedented experience, you’ll also have a personal butler that can cater to your every request.

Additionally, its location in the Maj Nusa Dua tourism complex means you’ll be surrounded by several star-rated hotels, a shopping centre, many restaurants, and stunning white sand beaches, all within touching distance. 

For those wishing to embrace a calming experience, staying in this area provides perfect tranquillity.

Found on the southern tip of the country, Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort is perfect for individuals wishing to explore all the beauty of Bali. Calm, quiet luxury encompasses the resort’s design as you’ll overlook the bluest seas at the top of a cliff face. Boasting a layered design of rooms, green spaces, and swimming pools provides feelings of isolation as you’ll stay away from the crowds. However, for those wishing more than relaxation, the resort also offers opportunities to surf, dive, sail, and, most importantly, explore some of Bali’s best golf courses.

You can access nearby courses through the resort, including Bali National Golf Club, Bukit Pandawa Golf and Country Club, and New Kuta Club. Each of these courses boasts 18-hole championship courses with unique characteristics. 

While the Bali National Golf Club hosts several lakeside holes and a series of creeks and canyons, the Bukit Pandawa Golf features cliffs and a stunning ocean view. Each championship-calibre course is a short drive from the resort, making it the perfect location for your next Bali visit.

Unlike the other resorts on this list, this resort transports you into the stunning Balinese mountains. Situated amongst the hills of a dormant volcano, this resort guarantees breathtaking views and a calming stay. You can immerse yourself in Balinese culture with rooms overlooking the natural plains and hills, a golf course, and opportunities to visit surrounding towns such as Ubud.

Golf is a prominent feature of this resort, as it is home to a Championship Golf Course. Though the oldest golf resort on the island, the award-winning Handara Golf Course is home to a series of challenging terrains ranging from bunkers to elevation changes. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned golfer, the course is suitable for all, making this resort an ideal place to stay and explore iconic Bali sites.

With an incredible backdrop of jagged cliffs and stunning clear waters, this resort guarantees an unforgettable experience. As you’ll be more isolated from the rest of the tourists on the island, you’ll genuinely have time to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of mainland Bali. Everything you desire will be within touching distance as the resort offers incredible views from its pool, access to a luxurious spa, several great restaurants, and other sporting facilities.

Otherwise, you’ll only be a short drive away from the rest of the tourist attractions on the island, including a variety of incredible golf courses. Whether a seasoned golfer or a beginner, you can experience golf courses ranging from the top of the Balinese mountains to the stunning coast. Courses such as the Bali National Golf Course and Bali Beach Golf Course will provide the breeze of ocean air as you play around tricky bunkers. Courses such as the Handara Golf Course take you through sweeping greens as you overlook the towering Balinese mountains.

The Ayana Resorts are perfect for all those visiting. Whether you plan on staying in the Ayana Segara Resort, the Ayana Resort, or the Ayana Villas, you’ll be guaranteed undeniable luxury. We recommend staying in the Villas when travelling as a group. Either way, you’ll be venturing into a world of relaxation and calm as you’ll have access to the incredible facilities on offer, including one of the largest pools on the island, luxury dining experiences, and various activities, including golf, dolphin watching, surfing and more. As the resort is nestled amongst rainforests on top of a magnificent cliff face, you’ll be able to remain in isolation while also having access to the wonders that Bali has to offer.

For golfers exploring Bali, this resort is a perfect place to put down as your base, as you’ll be able to examine the plethora of golf courses in the surrounding area. Whether you wish to explore the older courses, such as Bali National Golf Course, you’ll also be able to explore some of the newer courses, such as Bukit Pandawa Golf and Country Club or New Kuta Golf Course. You’ll also be able to explore an entirely different region of Bali by heading into the mountains and playing the Handara Golf Course. Overall, this resort is perfect for those wishing to have a more explorative version of Bali.
