    When I played at Blue Canyon GC in Phuket, the custom was to hire two caddies per player. One caddie handles your clubs, reads putts, etc. The other caddy carries a large umbrella and a little folding chair. She'll walk alongside you down the fairway and use the umbrella to shade you from the sun, and set up the chair to use while your playing partners are looking for their lost balls.



    It's pretty epic.



    The best part was that the whole round plus rented clubs and two caddies per player came out to about $200 per player USD (circa 2009). I think the dollar is stronger now than then.

    Did you have any luck? I've been to Jakarta a bunch - but mostly short visits. Only played golf 1 time - I believe at Bandar Golf Kemayoran...near Ancol. With rented clubs.
    Now I am going back for an extended 2+ month stay. Definitely taking my sticks. I will be interacting with locals, so hope to maybe find a regular group.
    Just wondering if you played at all? And comments?
    Also hope to find a regular range to hit balls 2-3x per week.
