“Two Options - Great Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Bintan Lagoon offers golfers two superb golf layouts - one by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Ian Baker-Finch. While the Nicklaus course is regarded as the easier layout, both are stern challenges. The service from the golf resort staff from hotel pick up to the caddie house was excellent. Again the local caddie proved invaluable with distance advice. The night before I was due to play, Bintan had very heavy rain for a considerable period. The courses were still playable on the next day.
I played the Nicklaus course, which was very enjoyable. Many of the holes play from elevated tees and this provides a great view of the hole. While the 12th hole against the backdrop of the South China Sea is the signature hole, there are plenty of memorable holes. The long par fours 2nd and 9th are the pick of the holes on the front nine. On the back nine, the par 4 13th with a green that is divided by a creek, the par 3 15th with simialarities with the 16th at Augusta National and the closing hole a long par 4 stand out as fine holes.
Worthy of a second round.

“Excellent for golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

i spent two 18-holes / 1 night there and i have been happy to find the kindness of indonesian staff unstrained. over all i has been a very nice experience for the golf (despite no water for the fairways).

BUT
- the spa is ultra over-rated.
- the dinner opportunity are very-very poor (in choice, in price, and sadly in taste)

BUT
-the room are very nice
-the pool are big and family with kinds have a separated location to cry aloud as please
