Mount Lesung (Gunung Lesung in Indonesian) is the pyramid shaped mountain you look towards when standing on the tee. It is one of the volcanoes which appear inside the Buyan-Bratan caldera and its peak reaches 1865m. Popular with trekkers, it has its own deer population and some of Bali’s earliest known Temples can be found by the shore of the crater lake at the summit.
A left to right longish dogleg par 4 that will test you. A faded tee shot is ideal. Straight hitters be warned that you may run out of fairway. A prominent Flame of the Forest tree stands at the crook of the elbow and is still some 205 yards from the green. There is a disused reservoir on the right hand side which must be avoided. The green is guarded by a bunker front left and slopes slightly from front to back.
Pro’s Tip – this green is not that big and can be hard to hold – so go for length off the tee so as to be able to hit a high trajectory approach shot.
