Batam Hills Golf Resort

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 5619 m / 6145 y | Type Parkland | Architect Max Wexler

Batam HIlls Golf Resort on the Indonesian Batam Island, previously known as Paradise Bay has undergone a transformation since the new owners took over in 2006.  The Batam Hills Golf Resort is located on the west of the island, in part of the Waterfront City development. To get the course is relatively straightforward by ferry and then a short drive across the island which offers some spectacular views.

 Unfortunately to date there is no accommodation on site, but with a hotel a five-minute drive it is not the end of the world for golfers wishing to stay for a couple of nights.

The clubhouse is welcoming and the service offered is second to none, making for a wonderful first class experience. A restaurant offers a range of delicious dishes and the opportunity to unwind with a drink overlooking the golf course.

The course was previously remembered for a lack of tender loving care and many golfers are now singing the praises for this remodelled and much improved golf course.

The course itself was designed by Max Wexler and has two distinctive sets of 9 holes. The front nine weaves its way through the jungle and provides an excellent challenge to all golfers with the tree lined and undulating fairways which follow the natural path of the jungle.

The back nine is more open with less undulating terrain, but the clever design still provides a good test of golf.

This par 72 course is not especially long and with the various options for teeing grounds it is well suited to all levels of golfer.

In general, the fairways are wide and inviting, the greens are generally in superb condition and quick.

As mentioned previously the front nine which meanders through the forest are the most enjoyable holes and provide the most memories as you make your way around this course.

Buggies are obligatory and as with many courses in Asia caddies are also available to hire. Batam Hills offers a knowledgeable and well trained caddy rank and their local knowledge of the course and the greens is invaluable to golfers who are visiting for the first time.

Interestingly the course has not a single par 4 over the 400 yard mark, giving golfers the opportunity to make par regularly with straight tee shot finding the fairways and approach shots with predominantly short irons finding the greens.

The fourth a par 3 of 165 yards is a great target hole. Finding the green is an absolute must if you want to have a chance of an easy par. Miss the green and you will be sure to find one of 5 bunkers that surround the green.

The seventh a relatively short par 5 by today’s standards is a tough hole. An accurately positioned tee shot will leave a great chance of getting up in two, but miss the fairway and you will be faced with a challenge to make your par.

 The course is improving each year and Batam Hills will soon become a must play golf course.

\nThe  course  was  previously  remembered  for  a  lack  of  tender  loving  care  and  many  golfers  are  now  singing  the  praises  for  this  remodelled  and  much  improved  golf  course.

\nThe  course  itself  was  designed  by  Max  Wexler  and  has  two  distinctive  sets  of  9  holes.  The  front  nine  weaves  its  way  through  the  jungle  and  provides  an  excellent  challenge  to  all  golfers  with  the  tree  lined  and  undulating  fairways  which  follow  the  natural  path  of  the  jungle.

\nThe  back  nine  is  more  open  with  less  undulating  terrain,  but  the  clever  design  still  provides  a  good  test  of  golf.

\nThis  par  72  course  is  not  especially  long  and  with  the  various  options  for  teeing  grounds  it  is  well  suited  to  all  levels  of  golfer.

\nIn  general,  the  fairways  are  wide  and  inviting,  the  greens  are  generally  in  superb  condition  and  quick.

\nAs  mentioned  previously  the  front  nine  which  meanders  through  the  forest  are  the  most  enjoyable  holes  and  provide  the  most  memories  as  you  make  your  way  around  this  course.

\nBuggies  are  obligatory  and  as  with  many  courses  in  Asia  caddies  are  also  available  to  hire.  Batam  Hills  offers  a  knowledgeable  and  well  trained  caddy  rank  and  their  local  knowledge  of  the  course  and  the  greens  is  invaluable  to  golfers  who  are  visiting  for  the  first  time.

\nInterestingly  the  course  has  not  a  single  par  4  over  the  400  yard  mark,  giving  golfers  the  opportunity  to  make  par  regularly  with  straight  tee  shot  finding  the  fairways  and  approach  shots  with  predominantly  short  irons  finding  the  greens.

\nThe  fourth  a  par  3  of  165  yards  is  a  great  target  hole.  Finding  the  green  is  an  absolute  must  if  you  want  to  have  a  chance  of  an  easy  par.  Miss  the  green  and  you  will  be  sure  to  find  one  of  5  bunkers  that  surround  the  green.

\nThe  seventh  a  relatively  short  par  5  by  today’s  standards  is  a  tough  hole.  An  accurately  positioned  tee  shot  will  leave  a  great  chance  of  getting  up  in  two,  but  miss  the  fairway  and  you  will  be  faced  with  a  challenge  to  make  your  par.

\n

 The  course  is  improving  each  year  and  Batam  Hills  will  soon  become  a  must  play  golf  course.
