That’s a distinction Bukit Pandawa Golf & Country Club now holds after the World Golf Awards ceremony in South-eastern Spain. The year-old layout won ‘World’s Best Par-3 Course 2017’ at the annual celebration of excellence in golf tourism. It was the first time in World Golf Awards history that voters could select the world’s top par-3 course.
Opened in October 2016 on the southernmost tip of Bali, Bukit Pandawa Golf & Country Club (www.bukitpandawagolf.com) is the flagship course of AccorHotels in Asia and the recreational centrepiece of Bukit Pandawa Resort & Golf, a 150-hectare integrated luxury resort development taking shape on a limestone clifftop overlooking the world-famous surf breaks of Bukit Peninsula. The ‘World’s Best Par-3 Course 2017’ was determined by the results of an online survey conducted on the World Golf Awards’ website earlier in 2017. Votes were cast by the public as well as professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry, including senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media professionals.
