The front nine of the Permata Sentul course plays predominantly downhill, while the back nine predominantly plays uphill. Down- or uphill play always requires the right club selection and that's what makes playing Permata Sentul challenging and tricky. Overconfident players who come to play this course for the first time should bare this in mind.
On this impressively rolling layout, it's nearly impossible to single out one particular hole, but hole #13 is absolutely awesome. On a clear day, the view from the elevated tee box offers golfers a bird's eye view on Sentul's race track, the city of Bogor and Mount Salak in the background. This image will be edged in your mind forever.
To get to Permata Sentul from Jakarta, you have to take the Sentul Circuit exit on the Jagorawi toll road and make a left after leaving the toll booth and then a left again. Follow this road for one mile until you get to the club's main entrance on the right.
