Parahyangan Golf Course is one of the newest in the whole of Asia having opened for play in 2018. It was designed by Bob Moore, the lead designer at JMP Golf Design, who has created world class golf courses in Indonesia and across the planet.
The setting for the golf course could not be more dramatic thanks to the valley and mountain landscape. Parahyangan Golf Course has been laid out among the bays of Saguling Lake and there are seven bridges located throughout the course, some of which stretch to 70 metres in length.
As you would imagine with a golf course requiring so many bridges, water does come into play around the 18 hole, par 72 course but perhaps not as often as you would think. Parahyangan Golf Course plays to 7,298 yards from the back tees and the first hole is a gentle par-4, with a slight dogleg to the right and bunkers strategically placed both on the fairway and in-front of the green.
You may be surprised to learn that there is no water to worry about on the front nine holes at Parahyangan Golf Course. However, this soon changes on the back nine and you are met with a 425 yard par-4 on the 10th hole, with a tee shot across water from the back tee and an approach shot over a stream to the green.
The only other hole featuring water on the course is the par-3 12th hole and again, this requires a tee shot over water but is not very demanding in terms of hazards.
There is not much in the way of severe undulation or hills on the course and the main consideration is on which line you are going to play your shots. Every hole offers many opportunities and if you enjoy being creative with your shots, you will love playing golf at Parahyangan Golf Course.
The holes between 12 and 16 are arguably the best in terms of layout, design and scenery. You will find valleys, bays, gorges and streams come together to create a stunning landscape for golf.
The facilities at Parahyangan Golf Course include a modern clubhouse with locker rooms, pro-shop, two-tier driving range and a lovely restaurant offering the best in Javanese hospitality and Sudanese dishes.
You will also find a spa and sauna on site plus the luxurious Mason Pine Hotel which has 135 rooms and suites plus a swimming pool and gym. You could easily stay and play a few rounds of golf at Parahyangan Golf Course and we thoroughly recommend it.
