Senayan National Golf Club has been popular with local Indonesian golfers since 1962 due to its strategic location in the heart of the city center. The original course, however, was short and unkempt with narrow fairways, mature trees and an aged clubhouse.In December 2012, Senayan National reopened its doors to members and visitors after a major renovation by the JMP Group and golf course designer Bob Moore. Following the renovation the course is one of the best in Jakarta.
The new Senayan National is still a pretty short course. A par-69, playing a modest 5,600 yards, greets the golfer. It's a visually beautiful course. The native has been replaced with Paspalum turf grass tee-boxes, fairways and rough and Tifeagle Bermuda grass on the greensemievious smooth fairways have been re-shaped to create earth moundings and undulating fairways.
The Senayan National Clubhouse and its amenities are updated and first class creating the impression of being an exclusive country club away from the city of Jakarta. The clubhouse is luxurious, with vaulted ceilings and elegant furniture. The golfers terrace has a large balcony on the second floor overlooking the Jakarta golf course.
