Ria Bintan Golf Club, Lagoi

4.6
#1 of 35 in Outdoors in Riau Archipelago
Enjoy a round of golf in the middle of paradise at Ria Bintan Golf Club. Witness sweeping ocean vistas, dense jungle, and maybe even the resident deer and monkeys. Be careful of the latter though: they can be a little cheeky and might steal your stuff. Full service options include clubs and caddies, and you can eat some local Indonesian food at the club lodge. Bring a few spare golf balls for the course, in case you lose some in the jungle.

  • After many rain in the last three months, the Greens are no grass unfortunately in very bad condition, lots of sand. The fairways are the staff OK, very friendly. Because of the Greens, we could play each 27 holes at no extra charge.

  • Nature-friendly courses in. .. Meet the monkeys referred to a round of overlooking the Hall. Showers are very underdeveloped. The hot weather should be prepared ....

  • Good courses, but there were a few holes on the Ocean Course whose greens were balding and not very green at all. One caddy provided for 2 players, which is less than what you get on courses in Batam. Food is decent. Rooms are clean and spacious.
  • Returning to Ria Bintan for the third time to play the renovated Ocean Blue course is pleasurably familiar.  Picturesque Hole 8 dog legs left, opening to vistas of the South China Sea as you take your second shot on the downward sloping fairway to the green.  The challenging signature Hole 9 has only a hankerchief-size fairway for those who can't reach the green. Landing your ball on either of them requires your tee shot to clear boulders rising up from the sea. If that is not enough to frustrate you, there are three bunkers in front, left and right of the green to trap even the slightest of wayward shots.  Course conditions are excellent. Despite an unwelcomed rain stoppage, the fairways  drained well and the greens stayed true to the stated green speed.  For the uninitiated, Ria in the local Indonesian language means merry or jolly. A feeling any golfer is sure to leave with, no matter what his scorcard shows.
  • I was fortunate to live in Singapore for 5 1/2 years and a member at Ria Bintan for 4 1/2 of that. Without question my favorite golf course I've ever played including many of the most well known in the world. 5 holes could be the signature hole for any course around the globe. It is worth every minute of the ferry ride from Singapore and the room rates make the experience affordable too!!! Rick
  • We played this course in 2009, while living in Singapore. I have played many beautiful courses in the world, but this remains my favorite of all time. The coastal holes are surrounded by the most idyllic ocean beaches I've seen, sadly with no-one enjoying them. We played on our last day on the island otherwise I would have come back for a late afternoon swim. The monkeys on the edges of the course made for an interesting distraction, despite trying to steal my camera. The caddies were friendly and hard working and the staff were also very helpful. I know they played an Asian Tour tournament here, and I can see why the pro's would love to visit. I hope it has remained the same after all these years and hope to return some day.
