The Course:

“We have designed a course that fits naturally into the environment, provides a good test of golf for all players and features spectacular views and scenery.” (Jack Nicklaus)

Jack Nicklaus has created a unique championship golf course that provides a challenging test of a golfer’s playing skills amongst this beautiful natural setting. Golfers are rewarded for accurate and confident tee shots essential towards getting on in regulation as all holes are well protected with sand traps or water hazards.

The Par 4, Hole # 5 is classic Jack Nicklaus design at its best, it is Taman Dayu’s Handicap Index 1. The hole is at the lowest point of the course in altitude but is the most demanding. A unique split fairway offers the golfer with two choices of tee off direction. The left side is longer but offers an easier direction to the pin and a better view of the green. The right side plays shorter, but requires a 100% carry over the rice terraces and a natural mountain creek, which guards the green. A player’s drive, which finds the fairway sand trap, will require a miracle to save their par.

The Par 4, Hole # 16 plays as Index 6, measuring 364m from the back tees. A fairly wide fairway offers many options, and the choice of Driver, 3 Wood or Hybrid will determine the angle and distance to the green for the second shot. Confident drivers may take aim over the left hand trees and will leave merely a wedge into the green protected by a lake. Accuracy is the key, and a well struck 3 wood to the centre of the fairway can play equally effective leaving a short iron to the narrow green well protected by the lake and the large bunker behind the green.

Taman Dayu is a prestigious international golf club and resort located in the lush green foothills of Mount Welirang. With the complete range of top quality accommodation on site, and the wide range of facilities available, golfers are advised to enjoy in the stay and play packages on offer as one night may not be enough to appreciate this enchanting resort located in East Java’s mountainous paradise. Taman Dayu Golf Club & Resort, is a truly unique setting to enjoy the game of golf and relax and rejuvenate oneself amongst nature and escape the stresses of modern 21st Century life. Returning back to urban life refreshed and rejuvenated.
