Ria Bintan Golf Club (Ocean course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1998

Ria Bintan Golf Club (Ocean course): Mention the island of Bintan to a Singaporean golfer, and they will strongly urge you to play Ria Bintan. If you want a memorable outing on a top-quality and immensely scenic course, take their advice ... you won't be disappointed.

You may like to warm-up on the nine-hole Forest course, before journeying out onto the wonderful 18-hole Ocean course. Enhancing its many stylish qualities, the bunkering on this out-and-back layout is distinctive, most bunkers having a high-grassy lip accentuating the side of the trap.

After a nerve-testing opening four holes where water is ever-present, the superb par-4 5th and 6th holes take you through wonderfully natural jungle, and seaward! On the award-winning par-5 7th, you tee-off in the jungle and arrive at a green, beautifully framed by a small pond that blends "infinity-style" with the South China Sea beyond. The next two holes are spectacular. The par-4 8th plays to a green which appears to sit out in the ocean, while the tough par-3 9th is played across an inlet to another stunningly framed green, this time perched above the South China Sea on a rocky platform; a jungle-clad hill climbs away to the right.

The par-4 10th continues the beachside theme, while the similar length par-4 11th heralds a return inland, as you rub shoulders with a hole on neighbouring Bintan Lagoon. The jungle-lined back-nine doesn't quite live-up to the dramatic splendour and intensity of the front, although the closing stretch of beautifully crafted and testing holes builds to a fine finish. The long par-4 18th, with a deep watery ravine protecting the front left of the green, signs of this fabulous Gary Player layout.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
