Over the course of the past few weeks I have been able to play on 3 Batam Golf Courses (Padang Sukajadi, Batam Hills and Tering Bay) and experience their respective packages for Singapore based Golfers. My review:

A. Condition of course:
1. Padang Sukajadi (good drainage, even if it rains course is playable), fairways are great and the greens well maintained)
2. Tering Bay - excellent drainage, despite continuous rains the course was well playable, fairways ok, greens in good playing condition
3. Batam Hills - poor drainage, despite no rain in the past 2 days and the sun being out for most of the morning many soggy patches. 2 greens were completely sanded, which left a less than positive impression

B. Condition of Facilities
1. & 2. Draw between Padang Sukajadi & Batam Hills: Padang Sukajadi has fairly new, modern and pleasant facilities, but they lack that special something - the architecture is a bit boring. And unfortunately their food offering is taste-wise somewhat weak - actually the weakest among these courses and the service in the restaurant is also only so so. Batam Hills has a very nice Club House, makes great use of the setting and the food tastes great and service is consistently good. But it is dated and needs some renovation work.
3. Tering Bay - Loved it 10 years ago.... and basically it has not changed since then: Nice architecture and ok food (great service though..), but it needs a major overhaul and this takes it a notch behind the other two clubs

C. Ease and quality of booking and overall arrangement

1. Padang Sukajadi: Nobody beats Ibu Fitri in this respect: Friendly, easy, quick and reliable - what else do I need to say. Also their Ferry Operator (Majestic) is by far better that Batam Fast and all the ground handlers (Passport and Bagage) have always delivered very well.
2. & 3. Draw between Batam Hills and Tering Bay. Booking process is easy, but not as easy as Padang Sukajadi (e-mail vs WhatsApp). Ferry in both cases is via Batam Fast - in the case of Tering Bay the Nongsa Route (from Tanah Merah) has the disadvantage that also on Weekdays it is full with uncles and aunties going for gambling - but it is faster and the land transport is shorter - so I’ll give it a draw. My experience with Batam Fast (on both routes) has been quite negative compared to Majestic: older boats and it always seems to take much longer to get the golf bags returned when travelling on Batam Fast than when travelling on Majestic.

D. Overall

1. Padang Sukajadi: Although the Course still has to develop in terms of size of trees and some work needs to done to get their F&B to the standard of the other clubs, they win my overall ranking due to the maintenance, quality of the greens and the brilliant booking and transport arrangements.
2. Batam Hills: Despite the soggy patches of the course, this is a very solid venue and in the dryer spells certainly a very good course. Downside is that when it rains it becomes unpleasant to play. Some upgrading of the facilities would be welcome.
3. Tering Bay: Good course layout with good drainage. Major work to upgrade facilities required, all looks very tired. But the staff are great - had a great caddie and in the restaurant they took exceptionally good care of me. Some other Ferry arrangement would also be welcome as sitting among the auntie/uncle gamblers is not my idea of a great transport to a Golf venue.

Incidentally the cost of the package coincides with the ranking. While minimal (abt. SGD 15 between cheapest and priciest) TB has the best price (and the only package that includes a basic lunch) followed by Batam Hills.

This course is not for those without balls. There are plenty of opportunities to lose them in water and trees. The fairways are in reasonable condition. The greens are fast but true and also decent. Trees add to the complexity even on some simple looking holes. A few slopy lies and few hills make it a fair challenge for the higher handicappers.

The caddies seem to have limited but adequate English skills but could be more assertive at times.

The buggy was in decent condition.

The locker room was adequate and clean.

I have played a few times at Sukajadi and love the course. Recently I played a couple of rounds with my 10 year old twins. I asked Mbak Fitri, the Assistant Marketing Manager, to arrange caddys who were good with children. She did not let me down. The caddys were wonderful, making for such and enjoyable time.

Traveling to and from Singapore was flawless. Mbak Fitri did an incredible job. Even arranged our hotel stay at the nearby Radisson.

All the staffs were very friendly and courteous.

Even though the course is flatter than most at Batam, it can be challenging and is certainly lots of fun. The course is well maintained and not water logged.

Looking forward to my next return.

Played on Sunday 28.4 and course have a very good layout and fun to play. Not to difficult. Could have better maintenance as all of Batams golf courses, but nice. Caddies are the best in Batam in my opinion, there skills is well above average. Easy check in and very good change rooms. A must to play if in Batam

Encountered a wild dog who was roaming around the 11th. The dog was neither friendly nor benign.

I realised that the dog could be trouble when my caddy scurried behind me in fear.

Thankfully, i had a club in my hand and a theory of handling territorial dogs that actually worked in practice or maybe I just got lucky.

Other than this bit of excitement, the course was rather dull in layout.
Maintenance was rather shabby and drainage was quite poor that showed after a morning shower.

Definitely will think twice about playing here again.

The sad thing is that I really wanted to like this course. But it is what it is.

Would highly recommend this course, played 3 days here and enjoyed it immensely.
Course is challenging and in great condition.
Had the best caddy for 3 days which made the trip even more pleasant.
The restaurant is great, changing rooms are excellent also.
There is also a Radisson Hotel next door which is very convenient.
Will be returning for sure!

Off the bat I will tell you that I am a member at this course so am biased. However, I have been playing golf for many years and can say without contradiction that this is the best course in Batam.
The clubhouse is new and immaculate, the changing and shower facilities excellent. The food is good, but I would stick to the local menu and it won't come yesterday, so order, change and then eat. They are getting better though.
Onto the course. The new buggies mean you don't take your life into your hands every time you brake or turn, which mean the caddies aren't jettisoned into one of fhe many water hazards.
Talking of caddies, there are a number of very subtle borrows on these very fast greens. Ignore their advice at your peril. My caddy is called Tety and is very good unless bribed by my opponent. She factors in the amount of beer I consume.
This is the only course in Batam not infested with broad leaf grass on the fairways. The aforementioned greens are as good as the Championship courses that Singapore has to offer.
There is water. A number of holes have reasonable carries, with limited bail-outs. A few exert a peculiar magnetism on a spinning ball, be it right or left.
This is a risk/reward course. Play sensibly and you will score well.
Play aggressively and don't be too surprised if the golfing Gods extract their pound of flesh.
A few holes to mention. The par 5s are long. I doubt if any are reachable in two and for us mere mortals most will require a medium iron for the third shot.
The signature hole would be number 13. A 545m par 5 with OB left and right. A huge 2nd shot will hopefully leave you about 150m out down a severe hill onto a green topped with glass. Par this and you've broken the back of the course. Take an 8 or 9 and the clubs may fly further than the ball.
Nos 4 through7 are my personal Amen Corner. All straightforward, but too aggressive and its goodbye score. Don't be afraid to use an iron off the tee on 5 and 7.
As for no 15 (S.I.1), a simple hole if you can hit a straight drive and carry a second 170ms over water. If not use your shots.
Back to the clubhouse to argue who owes what to whom, drink a cold one or 6 and be welcomed by the ever smiling manager, Dadi.
There's even a small Spa.
This course has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years and is run by a very helpful, friendly team. Play it once and you will be back.

Friendly staffs and other services as well. I think the price is also ok to play Golf. The only one con is that you have a few OBs so would need more balls than other courses. Still I enjoy playing this couse.
