Phil Mickelson is adding to his international design repertoire in Tabanan, Bali. Mickelson and his team will redesign the Nirwana Golf Course at MNC Bali Resort, with the new layout relaunching as a Trump International Golf Club property. The entire resort will also undergo a major renovation and will reopen as a Trump-managed property.
On why Mickelson was chosen for the course redesign, Eric Trump, Executive Vice President of The Trump Organization said, “Phil Mickelson’s track record as a professional golfer speaks for itself and we are thrilled to have his vision and talent for our latest development in such a beautiful location… We have a fantastic relationship with the entire Mickelson Team and together with MNC Land will create one of the finest courses anywhere in the region and beyond.” MNC Land is one of the largest property developers in Indonesia and is the owner of the resort.
In a release Hary Tanoesoedibjo, Chairman and CEO of MNC Group said, “We are thrilled that he will join MNC and the Trump Organization in creating an extraordinary niche community that will redefine the standard for excellence in Bali.”
The course is set alongside the Indian Ocean and Mickelson has stated that he aims to preserve the existing rice terraces and historic temples that currently exist on the property.
The property will close on July 31, 2017 and the extensive renovation work will begin. Luxury villas and resort condominiums will also be part of the offerings after reopening. This will be the Trump Organization’s 19th golf property in the world and its fourth in Asia.
