While there are some great golf experiences to be had in Bali, there are also many other ways you can enjoy your stay when you’re not playing golf. There are hundreds of great restaurants and bars throughout the island offering local and international cuisine. Those along the beach are generally more relaxing and tend to be quieter and more laid back than those in the towns. There are all kinds of water activities in Bali including surfing, diving and fishing. Or, you may wish to hop on board a boat or ferry and explore the many islands off the coast. There are some great destinations to take in for a half day or even overnight. The markets offer all kinds of produce and potential bargains and Bali also has great shopping centres and malls. To unwind and remove the aches and pains a game of golf may bring, there are many day spas where you can have tired muscles rejuvenated for the next day’s golfing activities. And, of course, there are so many beautiful beaches edged up against the inviting waters of the Indian Ocean.

Bali is a great place to play and relax. There are so many ways to enjoy each day and the proximity of everything throughout such a small island means that no two days need be the same. Combining a morning round of golf with a massage afterwards at one of the many day spas can be a great way to begin the first day of your holiday. On other days, you may want to play 18 holes in the morning, enjoy lunch and then hit the fairways again for a quick nine that afternoon followed by dinner at a beachside restaurant, watching the sun disappear beneath the Indian Ocean waves. Or, visit one of the night markets and stock up on great value clothing and apparel for your next round. Playing golf is always the focus of an IGS Bali tour and the locality of your accommodation to everything else you want to experience on the island will ensure you can enjoy every minute of your holiday.
