Message from Golf designer

Dear Friends, Every golf course designer dreams of the perfect landscape to fashion into a beautiful and challenging golf course. There is no doubt that the physical characteristics of the Nirwana Bali Golf Course site are conducive to doing just that.

When I first saw the site, I was immediately taken by the dramatic location, the fascinating local culture and the rolling hills covered with rice paddies. I was determined to keep all these features while building a golf course that would challenge even the world’s best.

While keeping this site’s natural features, we have created some of the most dramatic holes in golf. The 7th hole is especially challenging, requiring the golfer to hit a middle iron from the cliff side tee across a piece of the ocean to a scenic and well-guarded green. Hole 13 will require all a golfer’s skill and concentration as it plays along Indian Ocean cliff tops. Hole 14 is a dramatic par 3, with the ocean thundering below.

Capturing the Balinese style, Nirwana Bali Golf Club provides truly world class facilities to those who can appreciate the best. I’m proud to have played a part in developing this world-class golf course.

Nirwana Bali Golf Club Hole by Hole

18-hole par 72 golf course designed by professional golfer Greg Norman. Asia’s most spectacular golf course with holes carved through rice paddies, alongside creeks, and with three holes played along cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Hole 1 (Shark 383, Championship 346, Resort 306, Forward 273)- Par 4
Start with a reliable fairway wood aimed across the rice paddies and right of the cavernous bunkers will get you away. From here the hole bends steeply downhill to a well guarded green with hazards at the back and left. Shots short and right will kick to the green.
Hole 2 (Shark 188, Championship 172, Resort 172, Forward 120)- Par 3
The green is three clubs deep so check pin position and wind to select the correct club. A creek threatens the left side of the green, so favor the right and the ball will tend to run to the centre.
Hole 3 (Shark 400, Championship 377, Resort 377, Forward 309)- Par 4
An Uphill drive towards the right bunker will avoid sand on the left and reach a wide open plateau. A creek running in front guards the approach shot, rice paddies left and wetlands short. This contoured green will need an accurate read to ensure a par!
Hole 4 (Shark 439, Championship 423, Resort 383, Forward 331)- Par 4
Aim at the distant bunkers and hit a long draw to the wide fairway. The long second shot across a gentle valley takes on the wildly dramatic bunkers guarding the right side of the green. An opportunity to lay up on the left side and chip on for the high handicapper, is always an option.
Hole 5 (Shark 441, Championship 421, Resort 404, Forward 372)- Par 4
Now’s the time for your best drive across the valley to a saddled fairway avoiding the temple on the right. Right side hole location will require a shaped shot to escape landing in the green side bunker.
Hole 6 (Shark 501, Championship 483, Resort 428, Forward 386)- Par 5
A brave shot across the bunkers on the left of the fairway brings the green into range for the second. The hole doglegs to the left and continues dramatically downhill, directly to the ocean. Judge the wind carefully and club to be on the same level as the hole on this small green.
Hole 7 (Shark 214, Championship 194, Resort 144, Forward 130)- Par 3
Amongst the most dramatic holes in world golf. Check the wind direction carefully when playing from the tee to the fairway across the Indian Ocean. The secret is not to be short.
Hole 8 (Shark 544, Championship 513, Resort 476, Forward 438)- Par 5
Normally downwind, the longest hole on the course demands a well struck tee shot left of the fairway bunkers. Take advantage of the slopes in the fairway and lay right. Deep green side bunkers left and OB at the back make this small green a difficult target to hit.
Hole 9 (Shark 388, Championship 334, Resort 334, Forward 311)- Par 4
Position your tee shot at the top of the hill to the right of the fairway bunker. A short approach across a deep valley and river must be well struck with confidence to find the green set below. Check the distance and accept the challenge.
Hole 10 (Shark 445, Championship 418, Resort 393, Forward 356)- Par 5
Best shot is a long fade across the creek to the undulating fairway. A spectacular second shot down hill to a green set across the river is your reward. It’s all carry to this green. Safe play is to lay up short left, chip on and walk with par.
Hole 11 (Shark 211, Championship 193, Resort 193, Forward 124)- Par 3
A big target to hit. Favour the left side of the green for safety and avoid trouble right in the huge bunkers. Carefully read the subtle burrows in this green. Bonus for selecting the correct club will be a birdie putt.
Hole 12 (Shark 381, Championship 320, Resort 320, Forward 281)- Par 4
A great short hole along a ridge with Balinese temples and a river to the right. Aim your tee shot at the last house avoiding the bunkers. Anything right will be blocked. A downhill short iron to an island green that sits on a rock shelf in the ocean demands respect.
Hole 13 (Shark 337, Championship 322, Resort 310, Forward 162)- Par 4
A deceptively difficult short par 4. A strong wind behind may tempt you to carry the ocean with your drive to get close to the green. The safe tee shot is played to the valley between the bunkers, leaving a low punch shot into the elevated open green. Good club selection is important.
Hole 14 (Shark 186, Championship 163, Resort 148, Forward 110)- Par 3
The Shark tee is surrounded by the ocean for this intimidating shot across the beach to the cliff top green. It is all carry from here, so check the wind and take enough club. A gentle hole from the Resort and Forward tees with the ocean as a backdrop.
Hole 15 (Shark 447, Championship 417, Resort 417, Forward 387)- Par 4
Play a fade up the valley from the tee, keeping out of trouble of the left side bunkers. The hole sweeps uphill to an elevated green. Plenty of sand short and right of the green. Play your second to allow your ball to bounce in from the left.
Hole 16 (Shark 431, Championship 380, Resort 380, Forward 355)- Par 4
A generous landing area for your drive, rewarding longer hitters with runs from the downhill slope. Lay up unless you are confident of carrying the creek in front of the green. Bail out area is left side, avoiding the right green side bunker and temple at the back.
Hole 17 (Shark 349, Championship 321, Resort 321, Forward 284)- Par 4
Aim straight at the big bunker on the left side avoiding the creek right off the tee. This is a positional shot with a long iron or fairway wood, setting up a short approach to a tight green. A good hole to attack, but beware the creek in front, it can be dangerous!
Hole 18 (Shark 520, Championship 496, Resort 496, Forward 428)- Par 5
A great finishing hole. Aim right centre from the elevated tee to this undulating fairway. The hole sweeps downhill to a creek which crosses in front of the green and continues up the right side. Only the very long will attempt this in two. Lay up to the left and pitch close with your approach.
