Jack Nicklaus II on Bukit Darmo

Bukit Darmo is a special course for me because it was my very first opportunity to design a course in Asia. For that and many other reason, I wanted to design something unique, memorable, and enjoyable.

When I first visited the site, it reminded me a lot of the terrain back home in Florida, where I grew up and first started playing golf. The land is basically flat. Some people might see it as a negative, but for me as a designer, it is a big positive. With flat land, you are not limited to few ideas, or forced to follow certain design directions the land contour might push you toward. I looked at the land at Bukit Darmo as a blank slate where I could create something special out of nothing, and where I could explore ideas without limit.

We create a lot of variety throughout the course to give the members a different experience on each hole.

We create a number of lakes, mounding, exotic landscaping, and land features, all of which add to the aesthetic beauty of the course. One of the most unique features is the aqua range we included. I designed the course with multiple tees on each hole to accommodate player at all levels. I also like to take the golfer through different emotions when he or she plays at the course. I like to test their skills and course management, but above all, I like them to have fun when they play at my course.

Bukit Darmo is a championship course and a members’ course all in one. And I think it is both challenging and enjoyable for golfer of all skill levels. I hope the members enjoy the golf course and the private, country club experience. My personal congratulations go to the club on hosting their first professional tournament in 1996.
