A beautiful links-style championship course with especially impressive greens; it’s pricey, but on balance worth the money. Designed by Jack Nicklaus and set within 900 acres of beautiful coastal terrain, the Borneo Golf & Country Club is a links-style championship course ideally suited for those looking for a stop on a high end golf holiday. It’s reputed to have the best maintained Bermuda Tifdwarf greens in the country, and while this is a difficult claim to verify there is no denying the beauty and speed of the putting surfaces here, which are a test for the world’s best let alone a part-timer on holiday. The course is in generally immaculate condition, the state of the fairways matching that of the greens, and the course is dotted with the Golden Bear’s trademark waste bunkers (84 of them in all) which sprawl menacingly alongside fairways. There are plenty of water hazards to make you nervous on the tees, with forced carries on several holes, and the stiff ocean breeze can prove mightily awkward on the unprotected holes by the South China Sea. The signature hole is the 14th, a long par-3 that requires a daunting tee shot across a cove that would be tricky enough without having to cope with some very strong crosswinds. It’s undoubtedly exhilarating sending your ball out over the ocean and trusting the wind to bring it back to safety. While weekend hackers will probably drop shots here, the difficulty of this hole is not entirely indicative of the rest of the course, which is tough enough to challenge the low-handicappers without condemning the less skilled to three figure scoring. That’s not to say that everything is perfect – the number of bunkers does not seem to be matched by the number of rakes, meaning that ending up in a bunker can be a far worse outcome that it ought to be, and the locker rooms aren’t quite up to scratch for a course that is marketed and priced at the high end. That aside, the clubhouse facilities are generally excellent, and there is a driving range and practice putting green that you are well advised to take advantage of before stepping out on the course. Overall, Borneo Golf & Country Club is a course that lives up to the reputation of its illustrious designer.
