WE FOUND IT!

A GOLFER'S PARADISE



INTRODUCTION



Dear Golfers,
Greetings from Indonesia

The Historical city of Bogor is located 60 kilometers from the capital, Jakarta. The city was loved by the Dutch who built a palace there in 1744. It was the home of all the Governor-Generals due to the adaptable climate and to avoid the heat of Jakarta. The British also loved it and it was the home of Stamford Raffles before he went off to be Governor-General of Singapore. It is still used today by the President of Indonesia.

As a golfer, I also love it. I want to tell you another fact about Bogor which has been kept a secret now for 20 years. It is a golfer’s paradise. We have 6 golf courses, yes 6 International standard courses within a one hour drive from each other. Each course has its own challenges and are designed by some of the best designers in the world, including Gary Player. They could all see the potential and the beauty of the area for golf courses. Now I have told you where golfer’s paradise is why not come and join us. At Bogor golf tours we will give you a fantastic golfing experience that will make you want to come back time and time again. No matter what your handicap is you will have fun. There is also lots to see and do in the area for your non golfing family members.

Our golfing packages are designed by golfers for golfers.

Sentul Highlands is a great course designed by the Black Knight, the great Gary Player. It makes good use of the hilly terrain with most holes having a panoramic view of Gunung Salak and the Bogor Hills.

PERMATA SENTUL

Typical Traditional British Course. Natural rolling fairways and undulating greens will make this course a challenge for many golfers.

BOGOR RAYA

Appreciate Your Caddie


All golfers know that Indonesia has some of the most beautiful caddies but at Sentul Highlands golf club they are more than just good looking they are also well trained.

It is not easy being a caddie. They are outside every day in all weather conditions. It could be blazing hot with 32 / 33 degree temperatures, wet raining conditions or early morning cooler temperatures. They leave home early morning to be at the golf courses at 05:00 am.

It all starts with the interview. They must be between 17 – 28 years old, single and have a high school education. There is also a minimum height requirement. You cannot have a short girl struggling with a big golf bag.

If they pass the interview then they are put through a very intensive 2 month training program.

1. It all starts with orientation, club house, facilities, golf course and Sentul Highlands organization.

2. Next they are shown golf equipment, they must learn all the golf clubs and equipment related to playing golf.

3. Course layout and maintenance comes next

4. Now into the class room and learn all about the Rules of golf. Scoring systems and score cards.

5. Every caddie must be able to drive a golf cart, so it’s the school of golf cart driving for them.

6. Now the practical training begins. They are sent out onto the course first with the club professional then after they go out with another caddie as a trainee. You can spot the trainees as they all have white shirts.

7. The caddies report back on their progress. After 2 months they take a practical test with the club professional. He will give them an evaluation report.
If they are successful and pass the test then they move onto the last step. If they fail the evaluation then they stay as trainee for another two weeks until they pass.

8. The final Step for them is to attend a beauty class. This may sound strange but they need to be shown how to use make up.
You don’t want your caddie with that much make up on that she looks like a circus clown. So they are shown that just a little make up is good. Also how to look after their skin in the hot sun or what happens in raining conditions.

Now she is ready to join the ranks of the other 200 + caddies who are waiting to make your golf round a lot more enjoyable.

Training does not really stop there, every 6 months they are re-evaluated and their progress is monitored.

Trust me when I say “you will be lost without your caddie”. For golfers like me who have played the last 15 years with caddies then you go to a course outside Indonesia with no caddies, it is a complete struggle.

So the next time you go out for a round of golf, be polite and appreciate your caddie they deserve it.

On our arrival at Jakarta airport on 25th October where Sean was waiting for us till our departure on 2nd November we left Bogor, every day was memorable and we thoroughly enjoyed. We found Bogor Golf team to be friendly and very accommodating and on many occasions they went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Thanks again to Bogor Golf and we will definitely be coming back. Keep up the good work.

The group from Oman played 5 of the Bogor courses with Bogor Golf Tours.

Thank you Mike, thank you Sean... The Bogor Golf Tour . The father & son team are true gentlemen that take personal attention to their clients and treat them as "guests" and make you feel that you are indeed welcomed. We are no strangers golfing in Bogor and it has always been a pleasure to play there but with the level of care received by BGT the experience was further enhanced.

Feel free to ask them advice regarding golf, lodging , touring, transportation ...etc. they are more than willing to assist so you can have a great holiday. The communication prior and during the trip was always fluid and was highly appreciated.

Wishing BGT all the best and continued success in the future.

Dear Bogor golf tours

“Thank you very much for introducing Bogor and the very nice golf courses; Sentul Highlands, Permata Sentul and the beautiful Rainbow Hills to us. It was a great recon trip to see if we can bring more IGST members over to Bogor.

Mike you and your son have been great, picking us up at the airport – to the hotel – bringing us where ever we wanted to go from the hotel to restaurants or Bogor city – as well the pick up to the golf courses and arrangements where great.

We really thank you

For sure we will spread the word about Bogor golf in Taipei and in our next IGST board meeting we will for sure bring up Bogor golf as the next IGST overseas trip destination”.

Raymond Koots

We had a great time in Bogor, not only playing golf but also sightseeing. We appreciate the bookings that you made for us at Sentul Highlands and Rainbow Hills, both are good golf courses. You can be sure next time when we go too Bogor to play golf you will be the first to know. Thank you so much and it was nice to meet you.

On behalf of the British Women's Association, Jakarta (BWA) I want to extend our sincere thanks once more to yourself and staff at Bogor Golf Tours for attending the BWA Ladies Golf day on the 20th April in Jakarta.

I speak for all of us that it was really beneficial having you join us and I know that the golfers were very interested to hear you speak about the variety of golf courses and hotel facilities over at Bogor. As Bogor is not far from Jakarta I think your promotion of the opportunities for golfers to have a great day out or mini weekend was very well received.

Please can you pass on our thanks in particular to all the generous sponsors who helped BWA make our event a success. Sentul Highlands, Palm Hill, Permata Sentul, Riverside, Bogor Raya, Rancamaya, Harris hotel at Sentul, Royal Padjadjaran ,NEO + Green Savana.

We will share with you the follow up article which will be included in our May edition (to be released early this week). We will be in touch with you in the next few months as we start to plan our October tournament.

Thank you again.

BWA Chairwoman & Sponsorship
