Yogyakarta Golf Destination

Yogyakarta (often nicknamed Yogya) is probably one of the most interesting cities to visit on the Isle of Java. More provincial that any other tourist city in Indonesia, Yogyakarta’s roads are dominated by becaks (pedicabs), horse carriages, pushbikes and other modes of transportation that are somewhat traditional and rarely found in other major tourism destination of Indonesia.

Seat of the once mighty Javanese empire of Mataram and its successor the Sultanate of Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat, Yogya is a supreme cultural center and the gateway to historic temple complexes such as those of the Borobudur and Prambanan, both UNESCO heritage sites.

Yogya is also home to many Gamelan orchestras (Javanese – or Balinese – music ensembles predominantly made up of percussion instruments such as gongs and metallophones), classical dancers, painters and poets.

Twenty five kilometers north of the city, a magnificent mountain peaks to almost 3000 meters. It goes by the appropriate name of “Fire Mountain”, to locals better known as Gunung Merapi.

In Yogya golfers can play two 18-holes courses – the Adisucipto golf course next to the airport and the Merapi golf course at the foot of Gunung Merapi. Located on the premises of the Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta, golfers can play a 9-hole course (predominantly par 3) that is a treat to play for moms and dads and golfing kids.

Not too far from the Borobudur temple complex, golfers can play the 18-hole course of the Borobudur International Golf & Country Club, an enchanting layout that sits amidst the small provincial town of Magelang, some 45 car-minutes north of Yogyakarta.
