In February, I played at Nirwana Bali Golf Club for the second time. I had actually contemplated not taking the opportunity to play this magnificent course again and very nearly didn’t take my golf clubs. The free day I had in the middle of the week there for a business conference was going to be spent exploring other parts of the island, but the golf tragic in me ensured I had the golf shoes packed in my case before most else.
Arriving into the warm, tropical Bali climate made me realise that I had made the right choice by bringing my clubs with me and I couldn’t wait to have another crack at the world class, Greg Norman designed course. The work days seemed to drag and I couldn’t wait for my 8.30 am tee time on the Wednesday morning.
Nirwana Bali is one of the best golfing experiences I have had anywhere in the world and unlike many things in life that don’t measure up the second time around, it was even better than I remembered. From the moment you step inside the clubhouse there is a feeling of tranquillity and ease that follows you onto the course for your round. The 18 holes Norman has shaped through the tropical rain forest and landscape are as visually beautiful as they are challenging.
Every round at Nirwana Bali is enjoyable no matter what your final score and each will bring new experiences on a golf course surrounded by beauty. Nirwana is an amazing golf course in an incredible part of Bali. It is a must play for lovers of golf and is an experience you will definitely want to come back to.
