The Bali Handara Kosaido Golf course, established in 1974 was Bali’s first 18 holes golf course and is situated in a crater of an extinct volcano.
Overview: Bali Handara Kosaido
and Ronald Fream
The course itself is located in Bedugul in the mountains in the Northern part of Bali, which makes it unique in comparison to Bali’s other coast near courses.
Some of Bali Handara Kosaido Golf facilities are slightly outdated and have a distinct 1970’s look that make you feel like you have stepped back in time when you enter, but the course itself is good.
The 18 holes are nestled within a crater of an extinct volcano more than 1000 meters above sea level and it is surrounded by forest covered green hills and treats you with views of crater lakes. The three lined fairways will challenge good golfers, but the course is generally forgiving enough to be enjoyable for less experienced golfers.
Due to the altitude the air is fresh and cool compared to the rest Bali. Usually the temperature is between 14 and 24°C making it perfect for a round of golf.
