Brought to Handara from Karangasem (the Eastern Regency of Bali) during the Course construction, Puspa trees line both sides of the fairway and can be found throughout the Course. These evergreen trees grow to about 45m in height. Easily identified thanks to the reddish-orange upper leaves and/or their white flowers which can appear throughout the year. The wood is suitable for many purposes such as door & window frames, roof beams, flooring and furniture. The flowers have a fresh aroma and are extensively used in herbal medicine.
A good length risk/reward Par 5 that big hitters can reach in 2. The large fairway bunker cluster on the right encroaches well into the fairway and a decision needs to be made as to whether to lay up before it, attempt to cross it or to play to the left of it. Buyan Creek crosses the fairway at 125 yards from the green. There is a second fairway bunker which extends from 40 yards to 20 yards from the green which definitely needs to be avoided. The
green is very deep and oval shaped – it is defended by a bunker on the right and banking on the left. The green slopes slightly both from back to front and from right to left.
Pro’s Tip – presents an excellent birdie opportunity. Stay clear of that fairway bunker in front of the green.
