12th January 2015
Most golfers flew home on Monday 12th January 2015 after having completed the 3 rounds of golf in the Garuda Golf Challenge. Diehards from RSGC Buayas mostly opted for an additional round of golf at the National GC in Nusa Dua. This was the original Nusa Dua GC which was closed for reconstruction until 2 years ago. It is reputed to be the best golf course in Bali now. We had to pay about RM600 each ( about USD 180) to play here which covered for its green fee, buggy and caddy plus transport. This is generally the fee to play golf at most courses in Bali or Phuket and some of the top courses in Bangkok or Jakarta.
Unfortunately it was cloudy and lightly raining when we started to play that Monday morning. First impression of the club-house,the gardens and the first few holes - this golf course indeed has lived up to its reputation of being the best in Bali.
