Golf is a sport in which individual players or teams hit a ball into a hole using various clubs. The area of land in which golf is played is known as the golf course. A hole means both the hole in the ground into which the ball is played (also known as the cup), as well as the total distance from the tee (a pre-determined area from where a ball is first hit) to the green (the low cut area surrounding the actual hole in the ground). Usually golf courses have eighteen holes.
In Indonesia, golf is played for centuries but tremendous professionalism and apt skill that is employed to create classy golf courses is itself no less than creation of artworks. However the emerging trend of creating extensive proliferation in the golf courses has engulfed Indonesia for the past ten years and these are often accompanied by exquisitely beautiful landscapes which enhance the natural features. Indonesia or more specifically Jakarta is fast making its mark as a world class golf destination.
