MERAPI GOLF & MOUNTAIN RESORT

JALAN GOLF NO.1 KEPUHARJO, SLEMAN YOGYAKARTA – T 0274-896176/177/178 F 0274-896179

The valley of Kaliurang in the foothills of Mount Merapi is home to an enchanting golf course that was created by the renowned design team of Thomson, Wolveridge & Perret.

Sitting at 800 meters above sea level, Merapi Golf & Mountain Resort is situated on a relatively open plane and at the foot of the active Merapi volcano.

The front nine plays predominantly from the east to the west or vice versa, while the back nine plays predominantly north to south or to and from the mountain.

The greens are rather deceptive and according to the caddies the majority of the puts towards the mountain are downhill although you would swear they were uphill. It’s highly confusing but be assured that your caddie can give you a perfect read.

Playing at Merapi has something mystical and nobody can explain why, but the majority of golfers claim to feel the presence of the mountain with every stroke they play. Ancient central Javanese myths claim that the mountain plays a profound role in the lives of the people who live in its close surroundings and it is home to powers that can heal or destroy.
