Played the Jack Nicklaus course in May 2013, and really enjoyed the layout. There is a wide variety of hole styles, with lots of different challenges in terms of both length of shots and strategy/course management. The scenery is beautiful, and there is a relaxed feel to the entire club.
The greens have suffered somewhat from the very wet weather of late, but are still plenty playable, and will soon return to their former glory.
The same complaint about Bintan applies, though, and that is the price of food and drinks. A round of beers and an-the-go snacks for 3 golfers came to 75sgd, which is even above what you would pay in Singapore itself. A small bottle of water at 4.50sgd is also daylight robbery, given that it would have come from a warehouse/distributor in nearby "real" Bintan at perhaps a tenth of that price. Caveat emptor applies, as always to Bintan, but it still jars to feel that you are being ripped off on something so small, but essential. If you just forget that the prices make it almost equal to a round in Singapore itself (if you can even get on in Singapore, that is), then it's still a great day out in beautiful surroundings.

Played both the Baker-Finch and Nicklaus courses in February - both were in excellent condition and are good tests for all levels of golfer. Given a friendly welcome by the staff. Great food in the clubhouse. All in all a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

We played the Nicklaus course and were first out with caddy Puri. She doesn't play apparently but she certainly knows the greens fantastically well to the point that often I would have sworn the green sloped opposite to her guidance but she was always spot on. Course in great condition and from Blue tees was perfect for the two of us playing of 13. A three hour round in perfect setting with great fairways, bunkers and greens. Greens not ever so quick but definitely a joy to pay despite regularly hitting short puts with rented clubs. My only criticism is the price of club rentals at 65 Singapore dollars a set. That is too high but we just had no choice. Despite that I do want to go back and because if young children we were unable to play again. Hut it's a round to remember and I shall. It was great and if you go I hope you get a caddy as good as Puri as she is good company and an excellent caddy

The Jack Nicholas course was outstanding and typical of his design mantra. The Ian Baker Finch was painfull with many blind second shots and hopeless angled lies (no matter what standard of golfer you are). Both were scenically brilliant and well groomed. I'd suggest Nicholas then play Ria Bintan net door.
