A friend I I recently played a round at Nirwana and loved it.
We expected a lot being rated in the top 100 courses in the world and it didn't disappoint. The layout is challenging but not impossible for social players - most players will find the course very playable although it does punish really bad shots (tough to hit out of the rice and even harder from in the ocean!). I found the greens challenging but fair and overall the condition of the course was excellent.
The scenery was brilliant, particularly the holes that are along the ocean. The caddies also make the experience a lot of fun. All our caddies were lots of fun and they certainly offer some good tips to help your score, particularly on the greens.
The clubhouse facilities were very good for a cold shower after the round along with some lunch and a couple of bintangs to wash it all down.
Whilst it is expensive to play here, you are paying for more than just the course. The entire experience was fantastic and I can highly recommend it to anyone who really loves their golf and has some time to spare in Bali.

played 3 times in May. Some great scenic holes along the sea, especially the signature short hole facing Tanah Lot. The pro,Pak Dharma is worth taking a lesson from.I had 2 playing lessons that were both fun and instructive.Pro shop well stocked and the caddies were excellent and could give you the right lines on the greens.
Definately worth a visit

Our expectations were high with a course ranked no. 53 in the world by golf digest and we weren't disappointed.
From the beautiful clubhouse and efficient management to a well presented course and helpful, friendly caddies the day was great fun.
The fact we both parred the picturesque 13th par 3 hitting over the beach and ocean only made the day better.
Expensive but a day we will remember.

One word "magnificent, beautiful, definitely top 100" one word can not describe this area. Just got back. We tipped the beautiful professional caddies $25 each ( felt guilty not even $2 per hole)
If you listened to them you would take strokes off your game.
A must on your bucket list. Tanah Lot was a fun village to shop in. Temple was awesome.
