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

The reason why they do not have any PGPI-sanctioned tournament there is because the course don't meet their standard. There is something wrong with the construction, especially the irrigations and the water channel down below. That's what I heard, at least.

BUT... There will be Indonesian Masters from 2013-2015 at this course. I don't know what's the deal, maybe they have to fix these problems within 2 years in order to host the tournament. Then again, I doubt that this Indonesian Masters is PGPI-sanctioned event.

By the way, PGPI is Indonesia's PGA.

Sorry, never played there. Although I do hear that some courses in Sumatra are bordering with the jungle (rain forest?) and stuffs. And tiger encounter is NOT unheard of... I am not joking, the local golfers confirmed this.

Yarra, Thanks. Was not too sure about the water drainage issues. Will check with my friends the next time I am there as well. Very Happy

Bogor raya? Not buga raya. Highly recommend a game with Yarra at Jagorawi (bogor too) if you like a physical/skills challenge. Walking course, monstrous length.

Can stay one night around bogor coz 2 & 3 are near. u save on travelling time. Suggest novotel or santika bogor. Then one night in the city to enjoy nightlife and play at Royale. Play Cengkareng right before ur flight back. If got a local friend with a Citi Platinum Card, u pay 1 for 1 green fee. Wish i can join...Enjoy!

There's also Sentul City near Bogor and can consider the one at Jababeka, SE, just outside Jakarta, which also goes by the name Cikarang Golf Course

Jakarta have some very good course. Seeing and playing there in person is probably the best. The rates are reasonable if you compare with SG. Weekend rates are more expensive, as per singapore as well.

Halim3, Damai Indah are nice. I heard Bogor Raya have some pretty nice courses as well. But do note... Jakarta traffic is scary and horribly packed. Please plan your trip. Tee off at 6am or before, is probably best.

Yes, I didnt say it wrong... its 6am and before.

Just checked the accomodations...Sheraton hotel next to cengkareng is full.

Looking at google maps of the courses..Cengkareng and Damai Indah are pretty close by.
Bogor is quite a distance.

Need advise bros..

Bogor raya & emeralda stay at Novotel Bogor?
Cengkareng & Damai indah stay at Sheraton?

Thanks peeps

Bro wil, hope my lil info helps...

Jagorawi is one long toll road stretching from Cibubur (Jakarta Selatan or south) to Bogor and since Emeralda is located very near the Cibubur toll gate, it is not going to be near Novotol Bogor which is at the opposite end of the toll. Should you be staying at Novotel, the nearer courses will be Bogoraya, Rancamaya, Riverside or Permata Sentul. As for Sheraton Bandara, it is indeed very near the airport as well as Cenkareng & Pantai Indah Kapuk (Damai Indah) course...

Will, novotel is abt rite for bogor courses. Alternate: Hotel Santika Bogor.

If you are referring to Damai Indah Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) course, Sheraton is closest. Alternate: Novotel Mangga Dua, further into the city, but directly connected to courses via the outer ring road. You will still be able to avoid the city traffic.

As KK said, tee off 6 AM. Jkt is one hour behind Spore.
