Indonesia Open golf to move to Bali next year
October 10th, 2008

After four years of holding the country’s richest golf tournament, Jakarta will hand the hosting privileges of the Indonesia Open to Bali, an event promoter said Thursday.

The US$1.25 million tournament will be held from February until March next year.

“Dreamland New Kuta Golf Resort will host the championship for the first time,” John Eu, Global One Chief Executive Officer, said in a statement.

The new venue is in the South Western rim of Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, overlooking famous surfing destinations at Balangan Beach and the Indian Ocean.

The par-72 championship course measures over 7,500 yards and was designed by U.S. group Golf Plan, made up of Ronald Fream, David Dale and Kevin Ramsey. It is believed to be the first “links style” golf course in the country.

Eu said the organizers would continue to increase the tournament’s prize money to attract the world’s best players and promote golf in Indonesia.

European and Asian top golfers are expected to play in the tournament, which is co-managed by Asian Tour and European Tour.

Asian Tour executive chairman Kyi Hla Han welcomed the decision to move the Indonesia Open to Bali, saying it would spread the game across the country.

“I would also like to thank the Indonesian government for their continued support toward professional golf in Asia,” Han said. – JP
