Jagowari Golf & Country Club - Indonesia

There are only a few golf courses on the planet that are routed through thick jungle thicket, and many of these can be found in the region surrounding Bogor - about an hour drive outside of Jakarta - whereas as many a ten golf courses are bounded by impenetrable bush and fast flowing river streams systems. One of the most impressive is the 45-hole facility at the Jagowari Golf & Country Club. The holes are well crafted and take you on a journey of discovery around the property.
