The Royale Jakarta Golf Club is a place to relax and be seen
Commercial prosperity doesn't always come easily, but when it does arrive it offers some enviable rewards. One is the ability to live well and enjoy a healthy lifestyle – and belonging to an upmarket golf course just minutes from the heart of the city is an ideal way to achieve this.
The Royale Jakarta Golf Club is the rising star of golfing enjoyment and society in Jakarta. It was designed as a world class championship course and has proved itself an excellent venue for the Indonesian Masters in 2011, 2012 and now in 2013, says the club's chief operating officer, George Chandra.
"The success of Royale Jakarta Golf Club and the enjoyment it brings players is reflected in the accolades the course has already received," says Chandra. "Among the prestigious awards are Best Course in Indonesia at the Asian Golf Awards 2011 and 2012 and the Most Favourite Golf Course Indonesian Tourism Award 2011.
"Jakarta's latest and most dazzling addition to its golfing amenities features lush, manicured fairways and rolling greens. Royale Jakarta Golf Club is the first club in Asia to use Sea Isle Supreme paspalum grass. For a consistent feel, this new variety is planted over the entire grass area – tee box, rough, fairway and green. It is the newest generation of paspalum, designed to help generate a consistent speed, in accordance with international golfing standards."
The aesthetic outcome is an undulating sea of vibrant green interspersed with mature trees, cobalt blue lakes and a mountain backdrop.
And while the Royale Jakarta Golf Club is an ideal place to unwind, it is also a great place to both socialise with Jakarta's commercial elite and actually talk business. The contemporary sporting and leisure facility clubrooms are built in a modern, tropical style with every amenity.
"When pleasure merges with business, the Royale Jakarta Golf Club offers VIP rooms, a plush founders lounge, a function room and a boardroom equipped with the latest business aids," says Chandra.
This is where the club's proximity to the business district comes into its own. Located just 15 minutes from central Jakarta, Royale Jakarta Golf Club is accessible through the city toll road, only 700m from Pondok Gede toll exit.
"Then there is another highlight of the club – fine dining. The Royale Palace Restaurant has already built a reputation as one of the most popular restaurants in the city," says Chandra. "This lavish venue is designed in oriental style, which extends to the menu – Peking duck is a specialty here."
The club is also available for corporate and branding events, photography sessions and of course, for golfing tournaments.
"The club offers state-of-the-play sporting facilities to match its business facilities. These include spacious locker rooms, a sauna area in natural stone and wood, massage facilities, a 300m international standard driving range, with 24 lanes, a Short Game area and a pro shop.
"The Pro shop, at the centre of our club house, offers a wide range of product, selected to appeal to the connoisseur and novice. All major golfing brands are represented and our highly experienced sales staff are on hand for professional advice," says Chandra.
For players looking for a challenge in the great game of golf, Royale Jakarta Golf Club answers that and more. In addition to taking in the lush greens and fairways and panoramic views of Mount Salak and Mount Gede, golfers enjoy the international championship style.
"The course consists of 27 holes, comprising three sets of nine holes – the North, the South and the West," says Chandra. "Together, they offer varying levels of difficulty. Royale Jakarta Golf Club presents tests and rewards for all types of golfers and also offers a great place to meet, greet and make business connections."
