has a pool and tennis court for members and their family to enjoy but we recommend sticking to the links. Practice Facilities Just like the courses at JGCC, the practice facilities are top notch. Just a few steps away from the clubhouse, the practice green is well maintained and spacious enough to accommodate several groups of players. True to the greens found on the course, the putting surface has a selection of holes to choose from that vary in break, distance and slope. Like any wise golfer, you’ll be thankful for the pre-round putts you made here when trying to convert a GIR to birdie, or par save. In addition to being able to putt this practice green doubles up as an area to refine the chipping or bunker game as well. Just beyond the practice green players can find JGCC’s driving range and world class teaching facility, the CIMBA Preferred Golf Academy (CPGA). With inspirational quotes from golf legends throughout the facility this sheltered range makes for a great place to take your game to the next level. For those looking for some one-on-one coaching, the CPGA teaching area is isolated from the rest of the driving range so that lessons

can be provided in a distractionfree environment while utilizing the latest technologies in golf training. Committed to the development of youth players in Indonesia, the CPGA sponsors and trains a team of 11-17 year olds on every aspect of the game ranging from swing analysis, mental focus and nutrition. Caddies Seasoned experts of the course, the male caddies at JGCC promptly knew the correct yardages from every lie imaginable and had the vision to read any break on the undulating greens. After just a few holes the caddies quickly picked up our club preferences and playing styles. With a firm understanding of the game and deep knowledge of the course the caddies we played with were a great resource to help keep our scores respectably and our mind focused on the golf. Ambience Isolated from the rest of the world, each hole on the New Course uniquely preserves the natural beauty of the environment around it. A standing policy is that on the weekends tee-times are offered on a first come, first serve basis and that all members are created equal without any preferential treatment given.

With its commitment to the development of youth golf in Indonesia, JGCC is the model establishment for teaching and preserving the traditional merits of the game of golf. Z-Nine Coming off a golfer’s high after a

solid back 9 on the New Course we wanted to keeping playing, luckily for us JGCC has the Z-Nine. Appropriately named after JGCC’s owner and Z-Nine designer, Mr. Zakir, the course incorporates several blind shots, long carriers and a great 206 meter Par 3 finishing hole that

requires players to carry the Cikeas River to a green 15 metres below. Much like the New Course the Z-Nine incorporates its natural environment quite well and is an excellent compliment to a full round of both the Old Course and New Course.
