Golf fees on Batam Island are, moreover, very affordable especially compared to those overseas. So that besides being inexpensive this golf course offers beautiful and soothing panorama next to a most challenging course, said Andy.

Batam Island is only about 30 minutes' ferry ride from Singapore and 45 minutes from Malaysia. Many regular ferries ply between these points. Aside from its many undulating golf courses, Batam is a popular destination for families offering scrumptious fresh seafood at very affordable prices and a holiday to remember.
