Of the two Bintan Lagoon courses, the Ian Baker-Finch course is by far the most challenging.
Carefully carved out of a genuine rainforest, the course surely becomes more interesting the further you get away from the clubhouse and the more you go into the forest.
As a course designer, Ian Baker-Finch is one of the best in the trade. With the par 5 hole #8 or the par 4 hole #9 he created some terrific holes.
The par 3 holes #5, #7, #14 and #17 are terrific too, and are creatively designed; they certainly are no walk over. The par 5 holes #4, #8, #13 and #16 can be genuine score wreckers.
If you love to play challenging courses, than the Ian Baker-Finch course is definitely one you should go and play. It certainly belongs in our top 25 in Indonesia.
