Constructed in 1917, Dago golf course is one of the oldest courses in Indonesia.
An 18-hole public golf course, Dago is a wonderful challenge for every level of golfer, although short by modern day standards the location of the course creates a character like no other.
Dago Heritage enjoys a great mix of holes, and with just two par 5s the course has a par of 70.
Played at around 1000 metres above sea-level the clean, fresh mountain air is a welcomed change from other areas of Indonesia that are hot and humid.
Set within the mountains, the course is blessed with spectacular views and a mature pine forests, through which the holes wind themselves.
A very intimate course, Dago Heritage was increased to 18 holes in 1994 under the watchful eye of Chohei Miyazawa, and the transformation was superb, blending the old with the new seamlessly integrating into the surrounding natural landscape.
It is the landscape that lends itself to the incredible course, large elevation changes, valley like holes and a challenge that at first glance of the card is not apparent.
The first a par 5, is a gentle start to the round, but offers an insight into the numerous sloping fairways, elevation changes and the addition of clever bunkering and you will be facing many a tricky shot.
The 6th is a cracking par 4, measuring just 311 metres, the tee shot must stay short of the lake, which will leave a tricky wedge approach to the green, further protected by a bunker.
Unusually the 16th, a par three requires a good tee-shot to find the green which is almost hidden from view.
Finally, the 18th, a par 5 that requires a good drive to avoid the large protecting the elbow of the dogleg. If you can get past this tree you will be left with an excellent chance of getting home in two, right in front of the golfers watching from the clubhouse terrace.
Dago Heritage has great clubhouse facilities. A good restaurant and bar area with a terrace looking out across the course is the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing post-round drink. Large locker rooms, a well-stocked pro shop and a small practice area complete the experience at Dago Heritage 1917 Golf Club.
