Bintan Lagoon resort (Sea View course): Bintan Lagoon's GOLF COURSES CLOSED IN 2020 due to insolvency. The closure is possibly permanent, although the accommodations and non-golf resort facilities are expected to reopen as the Mövenpick Bintan Lagoon Resort in late-2024. Check for current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Sea View course at Bintan Lagoon Resort provides a wonderful mix of jungle-lined golf on the front-nine, with a chance to briefly get alongside the South China Sea on the back-nine. The layout's companion Woodlands course, a tougher, tighter and more undulating design by Baker-Finch (Woodlands), doesn't contain quite so much diversity, or the sea views, as found on the Nicklaus layout.

The opening holes on Sea View initially head inland, taking you through a naturally undulating jungle environment, and some handsomely crafted holes. Supporting the often large and expansive Nicklaus trade-mark bunkering, three small lakes ensure that water also poses a threat - especially at the short par-4 1st, par-5 5th and par-4 6th. The very enjoyable front-nine brings you back down to the attractive clubhouse, while also providing glimpses of the sea views to come.

From the immensely scenic tee-box of the par-5 11th, you start your short downhill journey towards the sea. One hole later, at the par-3 12th, you'll find yourself looking across the beach and out onto the South China Sea. All to quickly though you head back inland courtesy of the par-4 13th, which rubs shoulders with a hole on the neighbouring Ria Bintan course.

Small ponds ensure the threat of water makes a serious return on the closing four holes. The par-3 15th requires a carry over a small lake, while the par-5 16th and par-4 17th are tightly wrapped around the same small lake, a potential disaster-zone for hookers of the ball. The par-4 18th brings together, in one spectacular view, all the essential elements of the Sea View layout - excellent bunkering, water threateningly in play, a splendid clubhouse ... and of course, a sea view.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
