Bukit Darmo is designed by Jack Nicklaus II, the son of golfing legend Jack. It was his first assignment outside of his native country and his first in Asia for that matter.
The course is relatively flat and plays to a par 72. From the blue tees the course is a stern test for middle and higher handicappers, while the friendly white and red tees make playing this course challenging and fun. When the wind is up, the course is not a walkover.
The 500 meter (blue tee) par 5 hole #7 is rated as the most difficult hole on the course, while the finishing hole, the 383 meter par 4 is rated as the second most difficult hole.
Bukit Darmo is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Surabaya's city center and in the Surabaya golf triangle with Ciputra Golf Club and Golf Graha Famili & Country Club just a short wedge shot away.
