Back-dropped by Gunung (Mount) Salak and Gunung Gede in the distant horizon, and located in rolling prime land just 25 minutes from Jakarta's city center, the course was designed by Bob Moore Jr. from USA based JMP Golf Design Group.
In a total land space of nearly 100 hectares, golfers will find 27 enchanting holes to play that are divided over three nine holes layouts that go by the rather obvious names of the South, the West and the North course. A spectacular clubhouse sits amid an equally spectacular setting as it overlooks the site in every direction.
The grass that adorns the fairways is Sea Isle Supreme, the latest generation of Paspalem grasses that have been developed over the last decade. It is used on the putting surface too.
The somewhat powdery, near-white sand that is used at Royale Jakarta's bunkers clearly gives a new meaning to bunker play. The course is home to the Indonesian Masters.
