Special Recognition to Yarra, our friend and golfing kakis from Indonesia for his excellent tips and guidance to Golfing in Jakarta. He help us with our logistics and what is best in Jakarta. He is a great host and many thanks to his hospitality. He da man!

Royale Jakarta - Halim 3
Quite possibly one of the most beautiful courses that I have ever played in. Lived up to the expectation and its reputations. It has a lot of long fairways, beautifuly placed bunkers and ponds that makes you feel like a guest of honor and even a PGA player.

I was surprised when I was told that there isn't any official Asian Tour events played there, I am not sure why, but I ain't complaining either. As much as it is beautiful, it is also challenging course.

Simply breath taking. A must try and you have to be there.

Damai Indah in Serpong
After playing in Halim3, there isn't any other course that could actually give your umph! This my friends, is one of them that really got me going. The first time, that I spend on the club house and slowly make my way to the course, I know I am in for surprise. This must be one of the most easy going courses. Elegant, well designed, well maintained and not forgetting delightful. The lush greens, well manicured greens shows how well it is crafted. This course has a mixed of large greens, bunkers, water hazards and OBs. The greens are also fast with a minimal index of 9. It goes up to 10-11 in the afternoon.

This is a must. Dont miss this one...

Emeralda

After playing in Halim3, your mind plays trick on your and make a comparison with other courses that you played and about to play. This course is unfortunately one of those victims of expectations.

Overall Emeralda by its own design is created not as an equal of Halim 3, its near to hilly area and valley and has a lot of challenges that you do good course management. Make a mistake and you will your ball in rough, OB and water. A very decent course and at a good price. Very good club house facilities.

KK, apparently you took A LOT of pictures! And you actually went to the wrong Damai Indah, which is the further one! The one we made reservation for you is the closer one, which is the Kapuk course! Fortunately for you, the Serpong course is actually the better course except for the greens which is a lot more 'artificial' to me.

You didn't take any picture at Jagorawi? Then again, it is not as impressive compared to the other courses. Apart from the ranger service, of course! Wink

Yup, the greens are terrible to say the least... Not the condition, but the design is so artificial!

Cengkareng is okay. Very well-maintained and you have to play the back tee to appreciate the challenge. A lot of good courses around Jakarta. Just have to find the right time to play...

Yarra,
OMG, we went to the wrong course! Crap... and we still manage to play. Embarassed

I totally forgotten about the Jagorawi. I left my camera phone in the bag and totally forgotten about it. Jagorwari's 1st hole is memorable. Probably scarry in comparison to what I played before. Its a tough course. I can't imagine anyone wanting to play black tee there.

Wil, you should try to play in Halim3, its a beautiful course. Good view, caddy is pretty good looking as well Smile

I was impressed up until I saw how the caddy was carrying the clubs.

Yarra, buggy on track or buggy on course? rates?

eh, want to meet down the middle and we have our game at Bintan instead?

KK,

I played at Halim 3. You are right. This is one of the best course in Jakarta that I had played so far. I think the reasons why there is no events being played there are that the course is still owned (technically) by the army (if I am not wrong) and this is a relatively new course).

The pics on Emeralda looks interesting.. think will try to play it when i am next there. Very Happy

ello, the caddy at Halim 3 is much beautiful la. Something that I got to share abt the caddy in Halim 3. They are probably the most "IN" set of people around. I heard them talking FB, TWIT... I was like FB itu apa? Then she said you know FB, Facebook? I was like huh...

The day that I played in Emeralda, it was hot.. I can virtually feel my sweat turning to steam. Its interesting course, but try Jagorawi as well. You would probably curse me for suggesting this course...

Missed this one. Yes, youd the wrong Damai Indah course! It'd be worried sick if I knew as I know how far away it is actually from the airport! Glad you made it to the airport on time!!!

I'll try and take a picture of the first hole of Jagorawi next time I play there...
