Laguna Bintan Golf Club: Formerly known as the Banyan Tree (which is still the name of the on-site resort hotel), Laguna Bintan is currently making a good recovery from a period of relative neglect and poor upkeep. This Greg Norman layout, comprising two out-and-back 9-hole loops, is more undulating on the front-nine, flatter on the back, and contains a number of really memorable holes. Twice you come down to the palm-fringed edge of the South China Sea. On the first occasion what awaits is the spectacular and tough par-3 8th, requiring a shot across the beach, over an impressively rocky foreshore and onto a tree-surrounded and secluded green. The impact of this visually intimidating hole is only slightly eased by the beautiful backdrop of the ocean (with Malaysia in the far distance) and, perched on a jungle-clad hill across the small bay, the Banyan Tree villas. The second beach-side visit brings you to the other side of the resort, for the short and also picturesquely palm-fringed par-3 12th. The closing stretch from the snaking par-5 14th is played away from the sea through flatter terrain, where the feel is quite open and water hazards dangerously line the holes. Not only will a few tight tee-shots be required, but Norman continually demands accurate approach play, lest you catch the relatively shallow bunkering, or longish grass surrounding the not overly large greens. Provided Laguna Bintan's improvement program continues apace, you will not be disappointed by this absorbing and challenging layout, an important member of Bintan's impressive array of top-quality golf courses.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Laguna Bintan is not to be confused with Bintan Lagoon, which is an entirely separate resort and golf facility further along the coast. It is however related through ownership to the Laguna Phuket golf course in Thailand. This area of northern Bintan, called the Bintan Beach International Resort (and affectionately known as "Singonesia") is home to four excellent golf courses and several resort hotels. It provides an ideal holiday location and weekend retreat from the hustle and bustle of Singapore, but don't necessarily think you will be escaping from the crowds - Bintan is very popular with Singaporeans, especially at weekends. As part of the Bintan Beach International Resort area you can use Singapore Dollars here, as well as Indonesian rupiah.
