Sentul Highlands Golf Club

Officially opened in 1997, the 18-holes championship golf course of the Sentul Highlands Golf Club is a genuine masterpiece designed by no one less than South African golf legend and multiple PGA – and the Major winner, Gary Player.

Sentul Highlands Golf Club is situated in the prestigious and fully integrated and up-market Sentul City housing estate. Back-dropped by several mountains that overlook the stunning “Sentul Highlands”, playing this challenging course comes with sweeping vistas in nearly every direction.

And nowhere is that more evident than from the “open-air” and cozy clubhouse restaurant, its adjacent terraces, and from the driving range. Stretched out over nearly 90 hectares, the front nine snakes through a relatively cultivated and manicured part of the Sentul Highlands, and were housing is a predominant feature.

The opening hole is located right at the back of the clubhouse. From an elevated tee box, the view on the entire fairway – as well as on the fairway of hole #9 to the left – is pretty impressive.

Hole #2 is a genuine eye-opener. From the elevated tee box, your tee shot has to land on a relatively narrow and rolling fairway. To have an easy shot into the green, finding a relatively flat section of this fairway is important.

Hole #5 runs dramatically uphill. And with index 1, it is the toughest hole on the course. With the pin on the front section of the elevated green, you got to be precise in choosing where to put your ball on the green. Balls that land on the back section of the severely downhill putting surface can easily roll off the green and end up back on the fairway. From there, only a well-executed chip shot will secure par on this hole. The green of the par 3 hole #7 with Gunung (Mount) Salak in the background

Although the back nine is shorter than the front nine, it definitely is the more challenging part of the entire layout. Especially the par 5 holes #11 and #17 stand out. As shot making and placing on these holes is important, they need to be played wisely.

Sentul Highlands Golf Club offers a three-hole practice layout (one par 3 and two par 4 holes) for beginners and juniors, as well as a practice putting green and a driving range. The reception desk is located in the well-stocked pro shop.

The clubhouse is home to spacious locker rooms, a cozy open-air restaurant, function rooms and some pretty opulent VIP rooms that are available to all who want to entertain friends and/or corporate clients alike.

For lodging, Golfers can stay in the brand new Aston Sentul Lake Resort that is located less than one mile from the clubhouse. It overlooks the back nine of the Sentul Highlands golf course.

All in all, the Sentul Highlands golf course is one of the finest in the Bogor and Sentul Highlands area. It surely reflects the true character of its designer; tough and competitive. A wide choice of tee box options, however, allows you to make your round of golf as easy and pleasant, or as competitive as you want it to be.
