Bali Hai Golf Club attempts to recreate the beauty and drama of the South Pacific. An award-winning clubhouse of Balinese architecture developed from ancient Hindu, and Japanese aesthetic principles continue the South Pacific theme.  Unfortunately, there is not a full driving range, a disappointment for such an impressive club.

There are 2,500 soaring palm trees and over 100,000 tropical plants.  They constructed seven acres of water features that affect play on eight holes.   They accomplish the unique flavor in transition areas through the liberal additional of “Augusta-like” white sand and black volcanic rock outcroppings.
