We enjoyed 4 days of golf. Out of 27 holes we played holes 1-9 forest course and 1-9 ocean course, since 10-18 ocean are under renovation. Beautiful challenging course and well maintained, but greens sometimes rather dry. You are really playing through the jungle and touching the ocean. Nice staff and good caddies. Some buggies could have more battery power... More

The golf here is definitely challenging. Lots of water hazards, and natural hazards like monkeys keen to steal your belongings. The ocean course offers a few holes with stunning ocean vistas, otherwise there's lots of jungle and a slice means a lost ball. Buy some spares before you leave the club house! The bar offers terrific and well priced Indonesian... More

Great place to play Golf, two courses. If you are a good golfer you will love this course, take a Caddy and buggy too as its quite hilly. You will have fun watching the caddies pick your ball out of the hole. It rained on the day we played and they even kept an umbrella on us as well as... More

A really great day out from the start and the Ferry in Singapore to collection and golf at Ria Bintan. Well organized and a great friendly environment. The staff were good even in arranging an earlier ferry which seemed impossible with all the people but was arranged. Golf course was good and challenging with good greens and knowledgeable caddies.

Golf course is showing visible signs of ageing and lack of maintenance. Heard a planned renovation is starting in July and the golf course needs it badly!

This is a wonderful course with the eighth and ninth holes spectacular. The staff are all very friendly and the clubhouse excellent. Despite the beauty of the course it is not very challenging but being a non playing guest would be worthwhile. The course is kept in great condition too. The downside is cost. Even on a special we paid... More
