Golf Bandar Kemayoran, crafted by Australian course designer Peter Dalkeith Scott in 1997, embodies the essence of a city golf course. This 18-hole marvel is divided into 9 North and 9 South holes, each boasting distinctive characteristics that offer a dynamic and strategic golfing experience.
The South Course of Bandar Kemayoran Golf, situated near the clubhouse, challenges golfers with some of Indonesia’s tightest fairways, hemmed in by towering apartment buildings. Precision and focus are paramount as players navigate this urban landscape, making it a thrilling test for skilled golfers seeking a strategic challenge.
On the North Course, golfers find themselves circling a vast man-made reservoir, now a haven for local birdlife, including a vibrant flock of black herons. Located just a stone’s throw from the ocean, the course is exposed to brisk winds that demand control and low ball flight.
While Bandar Kemayoran Golf is modest in yardage, measuring 6,024 yards from the blue tees, it surprises with several short Par-4s between 250 – 300 yards. Golfers must leave their egos behind and bring a resilient mental game to tackle Golf Bandar Kemayoran, where patience and confidence are rewarded, especially when employing Fairway Woods and long irons off the tee.
