Bali is said to be one of the world’s best-golfing destinations. The island offers golfers from all over the world a challenging and beautiful setting with a combo of testing greens and well-maintained fairways that are perfectly situated in some of Bali’s most stunning locations.
Surrounded by the island’s most iconic mountains and lakes, Handara Golf & Resort, Bali is populated by lush greenery that creates a dramatic backdrop for an inspiring round of play golf. Situated in the cool highlands of Bedugul, the golf resort is Bali’s first and oldest golf course.
