Playing a round at Bali Hai is more than a collection of par 3s, 4s, and 5s over a meticulously maintained course—it is a total transition from today’s hectic pace of daily life to a tropical oasis. We are hopeful you can join us for what is sure to be a great day of golf with old friends, unique experiences, and relationship building.
