I tried to book a time with someone else for several weeks with no joy but 5 minutes before my tee time I was paired with Russel from Sidney & Dominique from France joined us for the last few holes as we caught the field up

Had the twilight green fee at 2.30 which was about half price had I played earlier & finished 20 minutes before dark

The course is just great
A superb design & challenging for all golfers
The 3 clifftop to clifftop holes are as good as some of the holes at Pebble Beach

I played on my birthday & to round off a great day there was a surprise birthday cake & fruit bowl waiting for me at my hotel

If you love golf & are going to Bali this is just a must visit

I had a lesson wit I Wayan Sukaba - a great mentor and coach. It was a 4 hole session, which is absolutely enough with Wayan. He put my golf to another level.
The Club is nice and the staff is very friendly. Sadly it will be shut down in the Summer of 2017 for remodelling :(

The course was very nice, in good condition and with the the sea views and Tanah Lot temple. It was all very beautiful.

I wanted to play from the resort tee, because I had not played for a while and didn't want to stress about the game being too difficult. I asked the Caddie if this was the resort tee and she said yes. After playing a couple of hole I understood that it was actually the Champ tee which made my game harder.

Another minus in the game was that the Ranger wanted me to play faster. Which made the Caddie stress about the time as well. Before my round, I asked how long it takes to finish the course and the caddiemaster told me it's around 4h 20 min. I wished I could have played a little bit slower and enjoy the views and actually take a few photos too, because I'm here for a holiday and I don't like to pay a lot of money just to rush my game thru the course, which I'm playing the first time. In the end, I finished the course in 2h 45 minutes (1h 25 minutes before the normal time), which really made me wonder about the Ranger and the course values.

For these reasons I wasn't so happy about the course. Everything else was very nice!

We had the pleasure to absolve a 6 day golf lessons with Mr. Mustika, and i Must say it was a very Wonderful experience, Mr. Mustika did his job very well with a lot of passion and was very patient with us, explained to us the basics and we had a lot of fun during the lessons, the staff also at the golf shop and at the fields were very friendly and our needs were catered for very well, although they will be closing for Renovations starting July but they get a well deserved 5 Stars.

Nice course with some holes along the coast. Signature hole is #7 with spectacular view of the Pura Tanan Lot temple, which is located on a small island just off the course.
It is a golf cart course, cart path only, caddy was good.
Course belongs to the Pan Pacific Resort. There are quite a number of buildings surrounding the course, some of these buildings look abandoned and quite neglected.
If you stay in the Nusa Dua area then the trip to the Nirwana golf course is quite an adventure. Takes you 1 1/2 hours to get there, lots of small roads and a lot of traffic.
The course comes at a steep price, green fee, caddy tip etc. costs you like €175 or $190.
It is, however, the most attractive course on Bali.
