Being a thick concrete jungle as it is, it’s probably a little hard to believe that golf is one of the many fast-growing sports in Jakarta. Before rejecting the claim, bear in mind that the city is a business destination, meaning many meetings and discussions occur on the green manicured grass instead of in board rooms. Golf does indeed offer a chance for the overworked to relax, enjoy the view, and work the muscles once in a while. Here are some of the best golf courses in Jakarta and the surrounding area.
Pondok Indah Padang Golf
Established on August 17, 1976, the Pondok Indah Golf Course has a unique design that represents a partnership between man and nature. Each game will afford golfers opportunities not only to measure their skills against the course but also to enjoy the beauty of the natural surrounding by playing in a relaxed setting of lush greenery and tall trees, in fresh air carrying the scent of flowers and the songs of birds.
Pondok Indah Golf Course offers golfers a location where the architect has seemingly done little to disturb the natural harmony - where the golf course blends into its environment as though it had always been there. Such a paradise is rare. It is even rarer to find one located conveniently in the heart of a major city.
