Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | BUZZ -

Less than a year since break­ing onto Bali’s golf scene, Bukit Pandawa Golf & Coun­try Club is in the run­ning for a sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­na­tional award - ‘World’s Best Par-3 Course,’ which will be an­nounced in Novem­ber at the an­nual World Golf Awards in Por­tu­gal. “Just to be in the mix (for this award) is an accomplishment in it­self,” said Stephen Banks, gen­eral man­ager of Bukit Pandawa Golf & Coun­try Club. “We’re still so young, but our ex­pec­ta­tions here are sky high. So we like our chances.” Opened in Oc­to­ber 2016 as the only 18-hole par-3 course in South­east Asia, Bukit Pandawa Golf & Coun­try Club is the flag­ship course of Ac­corHo­tels in Asia and the recre­ational cen­tre­piece of Bukit Pandawa Re­sort & Golf, a 150-hectare de­vel­op­ment on a spec­tac­u­lar lime­stone cliff top over­look­ing the world-fa­mous surf breaks of Bukit Penin­sula. The ‘World’s Best Par-3 Course’ will be de­ter­mined by the re­sults of an on­line sur­vey ac­ces­si­ble at WorldGolfAwards.com un­til Oct. 1. Tur­tle Hill Golf Club in Ber­muda, Cromwell Golf Course at Nail­cote Hall in Eng­land and The Zhang Lian­wei Course at Mis­sion Hills Shen­zhen in China are also up for the award.
