GOLF BOOST FOR BALI


Bali has expanded its number of golf courses to fi ve, with the launch of its fi rst 18-hole par-3 championship layout. Located at Bukit Pandawa Golf &


Country Club on the south coast, 10 minutes from Nusa Dua and 45 mins from Denpasar International Airport, the new course cements the island as a legitimate long-haul golf destination for British golfers keen to tee off in the sun all year round. Elegantly designed by Bob Moore of JMP Golf Course Design, it features waterfalls, lakes and terraced rice paddies.


Set on limestone cliff -tops with 15


holes off ering views of the ocean, a typical round takes just 90 minutes meaning visitors don’t have to take an entire day out to play it and can easily weave it into a tour of the island. What's more, the course is centrally


located close to fi ve-star hotels including Mandarin Oriental, Raffl es, Fairmont and Waldorf Astoria. The club includes a rooſt op


restaurant, pool and a clubhouse inspired by the island's temples. Green fees start at £79. bukitpandawagolf.com


Reversible golf course unveiled in Michigan


Top designer Tom Doak has opened a new reversible golf course in Roscommon, Michigan, making it the first for North America. Located at Forest Dunes, The


Loop has two different layouts using the same 18 greens, with play going clockwise on the first day, and then anti-clockwise the following day, hence its ‘reversible’ name. The club’s new course is located on mostly flat, sandy terrain, which perfectly suits a reversible-style course, making it a revolutionary new addition to the highly acclaimed Michigan club. While the concept of a reversible


course isn’t new in the golfing world — the Old Course St Andrews can be played in two directions — The Loop is thought to be the only 18-hole course which is alternated every day. The Loop will be walking only, with caddie service available. Although not due to open fully until


the 2017 golf season, it welcomed overnight guests during a soft launch in the summer of 2016. forestdunesgolf.com
