SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS & LAKES
Hole 1 – “Ibnu Sutowo”
Soldier and campaigner for Indonesian independence, Medical Doctor, Major General, Cabinet Minister, Head of Pertamina, Chairman of both the Indonesian Red Cross (IFRC) and Golf Association (PGI), businessman, husband of Zaleha – Ibnu Sutowo (1914 – 2001) was the Founder of the Course and named it after his youngest daughter, Handara. His memory and legacy is recognized each year with the staging of the Ibnu Sutowo Senior Open.
A right to left dogleg Par 5 to start your round. The ideal tee shot is a draw around the dogleg, but beware that Out of Bounds (O.B.) borders all of the left hand side. Be wary too of running out of fairway if you elect to hit straight. A creek crosses the fairway 150 yards from the green. The first part of the fairway slopes from left to right – there is O.B. on the right in this section too. An approach from the left is easiest as the cluster of bunkers front right of the green stretch back 55 yards. The green slopes quite severely from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – don’t be long with your approach shot as there is steep banking behind the green and a devilish bunker back right – all making for an extremely difficult up and down from here.
Hole 2 – “Flame of the Forest” (or Spathodea)
Many beautiful Flame of the Forest trees can be seen all over the Course. The Balinese gate you passed through at the entrance to the complex is also framed by them. They are recognisable by the reddish-orange coloured, trumpet shaped flowers which stand above the evergreen foliage. Flowering occurs from late in the wet season until late in the dry season. A magnificent specimen stands alone roughly mid-way along and on the right hand side of this Hole.
The first Par 3 and arguably the most difficult. The green is defended by a bunker front left which commences 45 yards from the green and ends 10 yards before the putting surface. There is also a greenside bunker on the right. There is O.B. on the left and impenetrable jungle on the right. The green slopes moderately from left to right and is deeper than it is wide.
Pro’s Tip – aim your tee shot left of the flag. The banking on this side as well as the green’s slope funnels everything to the right.
Hole 3 – “Stone Bridge”
Wayan Tunas is a Balinese Landscaper/Agricultural Scientist who worked on the Course during its construction from early 1970 until its opening. This was his favourite Hole despite him having the unenviable job of moving the thousands of rocks which were discovered once the brush had been cleared. He left an indelible mark on it – the lovely double arched stone bridge near the bend in the dog leg. Considered by many to be an Indonesian Golfing National Treasure, Tunas went on from Handara to be involved in the development of many other Golf Courses in Indonesia.
Rated as the toughest Hole on the Course, this Par 4 is a left to right dogleg and very much downhill all the way. Your tee shot needs to be accurate to shorten the Hole as much as possible – but be careful not to run out of fairway if you choose the left hand side. There is O.B. on the left and a wide creek splits the fairway in two. Careful club selection is required on the approach to both reach and hold the green – many approach shots roll out long. The green slopes slightly from front to back and is guarded by a bunker front right.
Pro’s Tip – longer hitters can take the option of going for the fairway to the right hand side of the creek. Such a line is riskier but will result in a much shorter approach. You may even drive the green.
Hole 4 – “Casuarina” (Cemara Pinus in Indonesian)
There are many native Casuarina trees running along both sides of this Hole as well as on either side of the green. The coarse sub species found here is notable for its rugged, deeply furrowed corky bark. It can grow up to 35m tall and up to 1m in diameter. The foliage consists of slender, green to grey-green branches making the tree look more like a wispy conifer. The fruit is a woody oval structure superficially resembling a conifer cone. In Indonesia it is commercially grown for its very heavy wood which is ideal for firewood and charcoal.
The second par 3 and all is laid out in front of you. It requires an accurate tee shot as the green is well guarded by a large bunker complex front right (which begins 50 yards out) plus more bunkers front left, back left and back right. The green sits diagonally to you, is kidney shaped and slopes slightly from front to back.
Pro’s Tip – depending on the pin location, a slightly faded tee shot will usually give you the best chance of getting close to the Hole.
Hole 5 – “Fir Candle” (Cemara Lilin in Indonesian)
In the early 1980’s pairs of Fir Candle trees were planted on all the Par 4’s & Par 5’s – one on either side of the fairway, 150 yards from the centre of the green. Two fine examples can be found on this Hole. They are a unique feature of Handara and may help to explain why your Caddy always has a good idea of how far you are lying from the green. Many more can be seen lining both sides of the Driving Range. A member of the Cypress family, they can grow as tall as 30m.
An uphill par 4 which runs straight from tee to green. The fairway bunker on the left sits about 165 yards from the putting surface. It is the green though which strongly defends this Hole. It is oblong shaped (deeper than it is wider), slopes severely from back to front and is guarded by a bunker on the right hand side.
Pro’s Tip – check the pin placement. Do not be long as putting downhill on this green should be avoided at all costs.
Hole 6 – “Poinsettia” (Kastuba in Indonesian)
A herbaceous plant sometimes referred to as the Christmas Plant with a height range from 60cm to 4m – Poinsettia can be found everywhere at Handara. Wonderful stands can be found on both sides of the tee box on this Hole. The leaves are oval shaped and dark green in colour. The upper leaves are most often flaming red but can be orange, cream, pink and white.
The bunkers left centre start about 175 yards from the green, so a good tee shot will clear them – resulting in a shorter approach. The safer play is to aim for the right hand side of the fairway. There is a creek 40 yards from the green which shorter hitters may decide to lay up to. The green is guarded by bunkers on the left and right. The green itself slopes from left to right and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – you can run your ball up onto this green.
Hole 7 – “Pengelengan”
Pengelengan Hill (Bukit Pengelengan in Indonesian) looms over the green as you look up this Hole from the tee. It is the very steep sided North-Eastern rim of the Buyan-Bratan caldera and is composed of volcanic breccia. The Buyan-Bratan caldera was formed about 40,000 years ago in an explosive eruption. This would not have been such a nice place to visit back then!
A fairly short Par 4 which plays uphill all the way. A decent drive will take you past the fairway bunker on the left which is about 160 yards from the green. The green has 2 levels – both fall from back to front but the lower/right hand side also falls from right to left. The green is well guarded by bunkers front left and back right.
Pro’s Tip – the green is wide but shallow. Take care with your club selection for your approach shot.
Hole 8 – “Lesung”
Mount Lesung (Gunung Lesung in Indonesian) is the pyramid shaped mountain you look towards when standing on the tee. It is one of the volcanoes which appear inside the Buyan-Bratan caldera and its peak reaches 1865m. Popular with trekkers, it has its own deer population and some of Bali’s earliest known Temples can be found by the shore of the crater lake at the summit.
A left to right longish dogleg par 4 that will test you. A faded tee shot is ideal. Straight hitters be warned that you may run out of fairway. A prominent Flame of the Forest tree stands at the crook of the elbow and is still some 205 yards from the green. There is a disused reservoir on the right hand side which must be avoided. The green is guarded by a bunker front left and slopes slightly from front to back.
Pro’s Tip – this green is not that big and can be hard to hold – so go for length off the tee so as to be able to hit a high trajectory approach shot.
Hole 9 – “Wolveridge”
The original Architects of Handara were the Australian firm of Harris Thomson Wolveridge & Associates. Of these it was Michael Wolveridge who made the initial concept visit in 1968, did the detailed design in 1969 and oversaw the Course construction until its opening in 1972 – with a Pro Am won by Graham Marsh (Pro) and Michael Wolveridge (Am).
This right to left dogleg Par 5 takes you back up the hill to the Clubhouse. There is not much to be gained by trying to hit a draw off the tee – better to simply play straight towards the fairway bunkers on the right hand side which are about 250 yards from the green. Your second shot should favour the right hand side so as to stay clear of the fairway bunker on the left which is 80 yards from the green. The green sits diagonally to you and slopes quite severely from back to front. It is defended by penal bunkers both front left and on the right.
Pro’s Tip – play this as a true 3 shotter to avoid the dangers and to get your approach shot as close to the pin as possible – this is not an easy green to putt on.
Hole 10 – “Golden Dewdrop” (Pohon Pangkas in Indonesian)
Named for the yellow leafed, hedge like shrubs which line the cart path down from the Clubhouse and surround the tee box. These bushes really light up the landscape and contrast robustly with the general dark green of Handara. Its fruit look like small yellow-orange berries.
A difficult tee shot should get your attention on this downhill Par 4. You need to be accurate and stay left of centre to avoid being blocked by the large Fir tree (Cemara Geseng) on the right hand side of the fairway – which is 110 yards from the green. The green is oblong shaped, deeper than it is wide and is guarded by bunkers on the left and right. This green is of the rare “Crown” type with a slight ridge running roughly through the middle of it. The rear section falls slightly to the back left whereas the front section falls to the front right.
Pro’s Tip – go long and straight towards the green to give yourself a clear line of approach to the green – get past that Fir tree or it will almost certainly get in your way.
Hole 11 – “Canna” (Bunga Tasbih in Indonesian)
A wonderful stand of red Canna plants wrap around the front of the tee box. The Canna is a large-flowered brightly coloured garden plant. The flowers are typically red, orange or yellow and any combination of those – they attract pollinators collecting nectar and pollen. The broad, flat, alternate leaves that are such a feature of this plant, grow out of the stem in a long, narrow roll and then unfurl. Canna is also an agricultural plant as it is one of the World’s richest sources of starch which accumulates in the swollen underground stem.
Your tee shot will pass through the gateway of Flame of the Forest trees to reach the deep green which is fairly narrow at the front and widens to the back. There is O.B. on the left. The green is well guarded by a deep bunker front left and a bunker front right. The green slopes moderately from right to left and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – you will need an accurate tee shot and deft putting to secure your par here. Being short is better than being long.
Hole 12 – “Buyan Creek”
Following exceptionally heavy rains in 2012, there was a major landslide. A big section of Pengelengan/the caldera’s slope tumbled down doing significant damage to the Course and destroying some buildings. As part of the repair works this creek was dug to divert mud and water. It can be seen crossing the 18 th , the 15 th , the 13 th and finally this Hole. It exits the Course back left of this green and eventually empties into Lake Buyan.
A straight Par 4 which runs slightly downhill. The fairway is wide and the only danger is hitting too long and into the creek – which is about 70 yards from the green. The green is teardrop shaped – narrow at the front. It is guarded by bunkers front left and front right. The green slopes moderately from right to left and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – your tee shot should favour the left hand side to afford the best angle of approach.
Hole 13 – “Cempaka”
Numerous Cempaka trees can be find bordering this Hole – especially on the left hand side. Typically the trunk splits into two (or more) parts a short distance up from the ground. The white and yellow flowers are sacred to the Balinese as they are closely associated with Durga – the Hindu Mother Goddess – the Protector of the World. The fragrant smelling flowers are much used in offerings and prized by girls who put them in their hair. Some of the World’s most popular perfumes are derived from the essential oils of Cempaka flowers.
Your challenge from the tee is to negotiate the fairway bunkers on both the left and right hand sides. The shortest route to the Hole is over the left hand side bunker which ends about 175 yards before the green. The safer option is to play to the left of the right hand side fairway bunker which ends about 195 yards from the green. The green is oval shaped and is guarded by a fairly deep bunker on the right. The green falls slightly both from back to
front and from left to right.
Pro’s Tip – favour the left side of the green with your approach as the majority of trouble is on the right hand side.
Hole 14 – “Bamboo”
Stands of Golden Bamboo can be seen scattered along the right hand side of this Hole. It has lemon-yellow stems and dark green leaves. The densely clustered stems can grow up to 20m high. It has a multitude of uses ranging from scaffolding and boat building to furniture making and paper production. In Indonesia, it is used in many herbal medicines and water stored in its tubes is sometimes used as a cure for various diseases – although such effects are not clinically proven.
The last Par 3 and not to be taken lightly. Uphill all the way and strongly defended, it requires a precise shot to get close. There are two deep bunkers on the left and another bunker guards the front right. The green is much deeper than it is wide and slopes moderately from right to left and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – don’t short-side yourself or you will be looking at a least a bogey.
Hole 15 – “Puspa”
Brought to Handara from Karangasem (the Eastern Regency of Bali) during the Course construction, Puspa trees line both sides of the fairway and can be found throughout the Course. These evergreen trees grow to about 45m in height. Easily identified thanks to the reddish-orange upper leaves and/or their white flowers which can appear throughout the year. The wood is suitable for many purposes such as door & window frames, roof beams, flooring and furniture. The flowers have a fresh aroma and are extensively used in herbal medicine.
A good length risk/reward Par 5 that big hitters can reach in 2. The large fairway bunker cluster on the right encroaches well into the fairway and a decision needs to be made as to whether to lay up before it, attempt to cross it or to play to the left of it. Buyan Creek crosses the fairway at 125 yards from the green. There is a second fairway bunker which extends from 40 yards to 20 yards from the green which definitely needs to be avoided. The
green is very deep and oval shaped – it is defended by a bunker on the right and banking on the left. The green slopes slightly both from back to front and from right to left.
Pro’s Tip – presents an excellent birdie opportunity. Stay clear of that fairway bunker in front of the green.
Hole 16 – “Civet” (Luwak in Indonesian)
Native to the area, the Asian Palm Civet is a small (43 – 71cm) lithe-bodied mostly nocturnal mammal. If you hear noises in your ceiling at night here, they are almost certainly being made by a Civet. They eat other small mammals, fruit and most famously – coffee beans (there are many coffee plants about Handara). Kopi Luwak is made from coffee beans that have been ingested, fermented and excreted by the Civet.
From the elevated tee box of this Par 4 you look down the fairway and then up to the green in the distance. It is the second hardest rated Hole on the Course. O.B. runs all along the left hand side. Your tee shot can be hit long and high – just don’t aim too far right as rough pinches in on this side opposite the disused reservoir. This Hole’s main defence is its green. It slopes severely from back to front and from right to left (especially on the right hand side). It is defended by a deep bunker front left.
Pro’s Tip – like Hole 5, you must avoid having to putt downhill on this green at all costs. Plan your approach to finish below (a must) and left (preferred) of the Hole.
Hole 17 – “Pakis Island”
Named for the Pakis tree ferns which can be found growing on the little island in the fairway bunker on the left hand side. Like all ferns, tree ferns reproduce by means of spores which develop on the underside of the fronds. At Handara the largest accumulations of these slow growing ferns (which produce no flowers or fruit) can be found close to the base of Pengelengan Hill which provides them with the most hours of shade.
The longest Par 4 on the Course and a good driving Hole. There is O.B. on the left and the generous, undulating fairway slopes moderately from left to right. The large green is roughly oblong shaped – deeper than it is wide. It is guarded by a deep bunker on the right. The green slopes both from left to right and slightly from back to front.
Pro’s Tip – drive it long as the further you can get down the fairway, the better the chance you will have of getting close to the pin.
Hole 18 – “Bulldozer”
During the first days of the Course construction, a 2 nd World War era Russian Bulldozer (then the only piece of heavy earthmoving equipment on Bali) was borrowed from the Army and brought up to Handara. It proved to be recalcitrant and soon after arriving broke down completely. With permission from the Army, the Bulldozer was ceremoniously buried by the locals on this Hole – where the fairway bunker was created above it. Thereafter all earthmoving was done by hand – roughly 1250 people (mostly local villagers) built the Course.
The longest Par 5 to finish your round. There is O.B. all along the left hand side. Buyan Creek crosses the Course for the first time 345 yards from the green – it may come into play depending on which tee you are playing from. There is also a small cluster of bunkers on the right hand side just after the Creek which need to be avoided. The Bulldozer bunker lies 105 yards from the green and shorter hitters may be well advised to lay up to it. The biggest green on the Course awaits you. It is oval shaped and is guarded by a deep bunker front right. The green slopes moderately from back to front and slightly from left to right.
Pro’s Tip – a good, long closing Hole that can wreck your card if you take it lightly. Secure your par and head to the Players Terrace for a drink, a meal and to enjoy the view. The waters of Lake Buyan can be seen to your right from the Terrace.
