Padang Golf Sukajadi Description:
(flattish course maintained to good standards)

Padang Golf Sukajadi is an 18 hole par-72 course near to Batam center. The layout originally conceived by golf course designer Thomson, Wolveridge & Perrett in the late 1980s. However, due to a sluggish economy, the Batam golf course did not open until 2009 when a local architect and land developers redeveloped it.

In 2010, Padang Golf Sukajadi hosted the 1st Indonesia Golf Association Amateur Open Golf Championship. Then, in 2014, the course was rated second best course in Batam, by Golf Digest Singapore.  Sukajadi hosted the 31st Indonesia Ladies Amateur Open Golf Championship in 2015.

The Sukajadi layout measures 6,340 meters with four different sets of tee boxes that cater to golfers of all abilities. The course grass is wall-to-wall Seashore Paspalum, which gives it its year-round bright green color.
The golf course is laid out across relatively flat terrain, but the clever use of earth moving has created gentle undulations and mounds that are aesthetically pleasing as well as strategic in their placement. As with many flat, parkland-style courses, water plays a big part throughout the round.  Good drainage allows for play after even the most torrential downpour, which is a frequent occurrence in the tropics.

The course opens with a long par-4. A straight well-struck drive is required to avoid the significant water hazard left and the smaller pond to the right. The challenge of the tee shot is made even harder due to a large tree encroaching onto the fairway. Long hitters can carry the tree, though most golfers lay-up left.

The 3rd hole, a par 5, is also a standout. Bunkers and out of bounds left to protect the narrowing fairway, and while the 2nd shot is relatively trouble free, accuracy is required to give the best angle into the green, which is flanked to the right and rear by water. Although the hole is not long by today´s standards, the stroke indexing of 2 shows this hole has a nasty bite.

One of the subtle points of this course is the fact that the driver is not always the play, as is the case on the 5th — a short par 4, fraught with danger. Water left, and a stream slicing the hole in two requires a well thought out tee shot and a complicated approach to the well-protected green.

The back nine opens with a challenging par four. At 384 meters, the hole requires a long, straight tee shot between the trees and out of bounds that frame the hole. The approach demands to carry a stream running in front of this small green. Hole 15 is the hardest on the course, and it is not difficult to see why as it plays over 400 meters. Find the fairway and then decide whether to go for the green or lay up short of the large lake that protects this green.

Overall the course condition is generally good; the greens are a particular delight, smooth and fast running with a consistency throughout. However, local grass varieties like Zoyzia and Bermuda invade some holes, and the fairways get soggy in the wetter months.

Padang Golf Sukajadi is a semi-private club. Public golf is welcome, and weekday tee times are always available. The course is part of the Radisson Golf & Convention Center which is convenient for golfers coming from abroad. Excellent clubhouse facilities and friendly caddies ensure that golfers will have an enjoyable day golfing at Sukajadi. The on-site spa provides full service in the locker rooms.

    • We dealt with GolfAsian via their Australian representative, Prestige Golf Tours. Couldn't be happier with either of these companies, or recommend them highly enough. All of the transfers from airports, hotels and golf clubs went perfectly. Their staff were a dream to deal with. Their prices are very reasonable. From small things like free water on the bus each day, we just couldn't have been happier.

    • Just spent two weeks traveling Thailand with Golf Asian, everything was perfect great courses, great service seamless pick up. I will use them again for sure very professional and very knowledgeable. There was one course I wanted to play that they said not to because it was in bad shape, I played anyway but they sure where right, was worth it for the views anyway :)

    • Went with my brother and our non-golfing wives on a weeklong golf and cultural holiday in Hanoi. Superb attention to detail by Sophie who was very patient as we made several changes prior to finalization of booking. Drivers were very prompt and friendly. Tour guide "Hiro" who led us to an exploration of Hanoi military history was awesome and we learned so much from him. Played Dai Lai Star and BRG Legend, great design and scenery. Enjoyed also our cruise of Halong Bay. Just wish we had the time to play another round or 2. We are now planning a golf trip to either Penang, Phuket or Yogyakarta and cant wait to use GolfAsian again.

    • We have just returned from our 2018 Hua Hin Classic golf trip and I have nothing but praise for Golfasian, from the pick up at Bangkok airport to the drop off it ran like a Swiss watch - we all know that managing 20 lads is like herding cats but Golfasian did a perfect job - special thanks to Thanita and Jinny.
