Royal Jakarta GCRoyal Jakarta GC


Royal Jakarta GC opened in 2008 and was designed by American architect Bob Moore from JMP Partners.

The founding members of the club comprise many of the most successful business leaders in Indonesia and they have managed to site 27 holes on rolling terrain within the city precincts...


Royal Jakarta GC- a garden landscape!


However at the time of writing Jakarta is home to approx. 10 million people, and is one of the largest cities in the world.

The traffic is horrendous!

We were fortunate to have a police escort, but even so our movement was painfully slow- so the message is 'plan for the traffic' and leave extra time for gridlocks....

When you do drive in the gates at Royal Jakarta it is a green carpet of tranquility after the hustle bustle elsewhere in the city....

The course has three loops of nine holes, named the north, south, and west courses.

It is very much parkland golf with water hazards aplenty.

But the strategic golfer would also be aware of the bunkering- there is plenty of it! 


Royal Jakarta GC is beautifully maintained!

The par 3's have water carries and grab your attention!



The club has been one of the first to adopt the new Sea Isle Supreme Paspalum, and it is used right across the courses including tees, fairways, greens and rough, and looks good.

It certainly gives a good cover, and when we played- just a few days after the Indonesian Masters the rough was long and particularly hard to negotiate.

The greens proved very tricky and I wondered if the paspalum was perhaps a bit grainy?

Certainly when we played the slopes, speed and grain were challenging!

In it's short history Royal Jakarta has already hosted major international events including the Indonesian Masters from 2011- 2016.

It has been rated best course in Indonesia a number of times.

I recommend it to you!
