Rainbow Hills (Bukit Pelangi), Bogor - The course is the centerpiece of a 300 hectare, master-planned community on the mountain slopes above Bogor. The original 18 holes opened in 1995. The third nine opened in 2015. The facility has received numerous awards including "Indonesia’s Best Course 2019” from the Asian Golf Awards and the World Golf Awards, “Top 500 Golf Holes in the World” from Golf Magazine” and “Top 100 Golf Courses in Asia 2021” from Golf Travel.

Royale Jakarta, Jakarta - A stand-alone, 27 hole golf course adjacent to the Halim Airport. The golf course was one of the first high-end daily fee courses in Asia. Royale was recognized as “Indonesia’s Best Course” by the Asian Golf Awards from 2011 to 2016. It is also host of the Indonesian Masters, the most prestigious professional tournament in Indonesia. Royale is widely recognized as one of the most demanding layouts in Asia and is the winner of numerous awards.

Padivalley, Sulawesi - The 18 hole golf course was designed to host tournament events. Located just east of Makassar the golf course is integrated into a residential and resort community. The surrounding community has been quite slow to develop.

Senayan National, Jakarta - In 2010 we redesigned the old Senayan golf course. Although the site is incredibly small for an 18 hole course, the location is perhaps the best in Indonesia, located in the heart of the Jakarta. The design focused on creating a strategic layout, preserving the mature, historic trees and enhancing the water quality of the canal that flows through the course. Senayan was recognized as the “Best Renovation in Asia 2013” by the Asian Golf Awards.

Bukit Pandawa, Bali - This 18 hole, par 3 golf course was selected as “World’s Best Par 3 Course 2019” by the World Golf Awards. Perched on a plateau above the beautiful Indian Ocean the course features three sets of tees and holes ranging from 115 to 240 yards. Plans call for the creation of four resort hotels surrounding the golf course.

Parahyangan Golf, Bandung - The 18 hole golf course is a feature of Kota Baru Parahyangan, a new city that began development in 1998. The course plays alongside and across several bays of Lake Saguling and incorporates agricultural fields into the design. The course is visually spectacular and was selected “Best New Course in Asia 2020” by the Asian Golf Awards.

Suvarna Jakarta, Jakarta - Opened in 2020 Suvarna is a 27 hole, stand-alone facility developed on the site of the old 18 hole Halim 2 golf course. None of the original Halim 2 holes were retained. The clubhouse location was moved to provide dramatic views of the new finishing holes. The course was designed to incorporate Scottish ‘links’ elements. Bunkers are deep, simple in form and feature steep turf faces. Drainage channels are constructed as ‘burns’ with deep floors and brick walls. Greens are large with roll-offs into grass hollows. The design also features multiple lines of play on virtually every hole.
