Owner description: New Kuta Golf The Great Links Challenge!About The Golf Course Carved out of harsh limestone and set on top of brilliant white cliffs that overlook an endless blue horizon of the Indian Ocean, this championship golf course ranks among Asia’s best and most challenging. A magnificent Club House boasts a restaurant, bar, spa and function rooms, with panoramic views of the lush rolling fairways and sea. Overlooking the 9th and 18th greens of the golf course, The Atrium is a large sea of open space and shape, which flows from the Link Restaurant through the Club House and is a popular venue for pre- and post-event functions. There is even a lookout tower beside the Club House where members can climb up to watch the magical sunsets so typical of Bali. The elegant par-5 18th finishes (as does the 9th) just a few yards from the shaded patio serving New Kuta’s magnificent clubhouse, where the formidable Links Restaurant & Bar (and the club’s dedicated spa) make it an ideal place to relax after the round.New Kuta Golf also sets itself apart with a commitment to game improvement. The Golf Academy Bali (GCB) was opened here in January 2013 under the direction of British PGA professional Neil Douglas. With its covered, grass driving range, expansive short-game area, and 9000-square-foot putting green, New Kuta’s facilities are state of the art. Douglas’ fully credentialed GCB staff is equipped to provide individual and group instruction, along with video swing analysis, custom club fitting and equipment checks.About The DesignerGolfplan- Fream, Dale & Ramsey, has been providing golf-course planning and design services worldwide since 1972.

Golfplan has participated in joint projects with top professionals such as Peter Thomson, Johnny Miller, Mark O’Meara and Colin Montgomerie. Golfplan has designed many top courses and golf resorts worldwide, from Finland to Bali, Disneyland Paris to Brunei. Thanks to them that New Kuta Golf began its operations in May 2007. It is wonderfully design and the original contours of the land are still preserved. The Signature Hole The Signature hole of this links course is located at hole 15. It is perched above a limestone cliff, overlooking stunning Dreamland, Balangan Beach – Bali’s famous surf beaches, and Indian Ocean, as steep and as high as 70 meters from the ocean. From this signature hole, the Indian Ocean Sea unfolds before our eyes, and by its beauty, there are many couples having their nuptials here. Other than that, the beautifully designed of this par 3 is also very challenging even for an experienced golfers because strong winds can move the ball on the green. But the challenge is what actually makes them curious and want to play again at New Kuta Golf.

A mate and I played New Kuta after a recommendation from a golf guy in Bali and we were extremely disappointed. The caddies were very inexperienced and gave wrong info, the price was way overs for the standard of the course and there was no food of any decent standard to eat on the way around. All in all we were disappointed in the standard of the course and I've got to say that I wouldn't recommend the course to anyone who likes a good track that's also in good condition.

played here last week and found this course fun and beautiful. Greens were extremely fast and the grounds and fairway were perfect. The fun young lady caddys were fun but professional. New there course. Not a long course for the bigger hitters but overall good fun. Bali is expensive for golf so be willing to fork out $170 ++ for a game. Good fun and would go back.

Good course, the registration service, golf pro shop and caddies all good quality. Not as good as Nirwana for similar price - so need to be more competitive. Some greens are currently under repair but all playable.

This is no Nirwana Bali. Considering the little difference in green fees, the Nirwana Bali is a much better value. Although you will end up paying more for taxi if you don't live in the resort. I went from Nusa Dua to New Kuta and it cost me US$30 return. For Nirwana Bali, it's double. The course is in good shape, again, not as good as Nirwana Bali but it does play faster. It does have a couple of holes looking over the Indian Ocean which offer great views. The course itself is challenging especially when it is windy.

My brother and I played 18 holes in May 2014 and were greatly impressed by the course condition and design. The weather was great and the views from many back nine holes was impressive. We were looked after incredibly well by all staff and can highly recommend the caddy skills of Lufey and Happy who were skilled caddies and great fun also - Nice work ladies!
Will play again when I get the chance
