Experience the Best Golf Courses and Luxurious Stay at Montigo Resort
Batam, an Indonesian island just a short ferry ride away from Singapore, has become a popular destination for golf enthusiasts looking for a quick getaway. With its tropical climate and stunning natural scenery, Batam offers golfers an ideal setting to play their favourite sport while enjoying a relaxing holiday.
A 3-day golf experience in Batam highlighted the island's three best golf courses, the luxurious Montigo Resort where we stayed, and other activities we enjoyed during our trip.
Our first stop was Palm Springs Golf & Beach Resort, a beautifully designed 18-hole golf course with breathtaking views of the South China Sea. Located just a 30-minute drive from Montigo Resort, this course was challenging and enjoyable to play, with its undulating fairways and strategically placed water hazards. We were impressed by the impeccable course conditions and the friendly staff who made our golfing experience memorable.
Next on our itinerary was Southlinks Country Club, an award-winning golf course on the island's eastern side. This challenging course features rolling hills, tricky bunkers, and fast greens that put our golfing skills to the test. However, despite the challenging course, we couldn't help but appreciate the stunning natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, which added to the overall experience.
Our final stop was Tering Bay Golf & Country Club, another beautifully designed 18-hole course on Batam's western side. This course was the perfect way to end our golfing journey, with its scenic views of the Riau Islands and its strategic layout that challenged us to use every club in our bags. Again, we were impressed by the attention to detail the staff had put into making the course visually appealing while maintaining its playability.
We stayed at the luxurious Montigo Resort throughout our trip, which offered stunning ocean views, spacious rooms, and world-class amenities. Our driver, assigned to us for the whole trip, made travelling to and from the golf courses a breeze, leaving us with more time to relax and enjoy our holiday.
Getting to Batam was easy, with a short ferry ride from Singapore's Harbourfront Ferry Terminal taking us directly to the island. Immigration was a breeze, and the golf registration process was seamless, with our driver handling all the details.
In conclusion, Batam is an ideal destination for golf enthusiasts looking for a quick and easy getaway. With its stunning natural scenery and luxurious accommodations, Batam offers a complete package for those who want to play golf in a tropical paradise. We highly recommend this destination for anyone who wants to combine their love of golf with a relaxing holiday experience.
