Class Of Its Own
Prepare for a truly distinctive experience. You’ll see why Gary Player ranks us as one of his top 10 favourite courses out of the over 300 courses he has designed. Established in 1998, Ria Bintan Golf Club is today one of Asia’s top golfing destinations, attracting golfers from around the world with our two beautiful courses designed by golf legend, Gary Player.
The award-winning 18-hole Ocean Course unfolds next to the South China Sea, offering tantalising ocean views, while the 9-hole Forest Course set amidst mature woodlands tests your mettle with its various bunkers and fairways.
Ria Bintan Golf Club has been consistently named the best golf course in Asia and Indonesia, and has played host to numerous regional events, including the annual Ria Bintan Open.
In 2009, Ria Bintan Golf Club became the first course in Indonesia to receive the highly-acclaimed Certified Audubon International Classic and Cooperative Sanctuary certification from world-renowned green champion, Audubon International.
This status recognises our leadership, commitment and high standards towards environmental stewardship. Simply put, a great game of golf with respect for nature and wildlife goes hand in hand at Ria Bintan Golf Club.
Cutting through the native jungle of Riau, a round on our Ocean Course is a visual treat at every turn, especially at our signature holes. The South China Sea opens up to you at Hole 7. The green at Hole 8 is surrounded by the beautiful views of the South China Sea on three sides. Hole 9 is a rocky outcrop tee off challenge for any golfer. That’s when keeping your eye on the ball gets difficult.
