Lefty Redesigns Nirwana Course
Three-time major champion Phil Mickelson has been chosen to redesign Nirwana Bali Resort, an 18-hole golf course in Tabanan, Bali. Mickelson’s design team will be working with the Indonesian property developer and land owner, MNC Land, and The Trump Organization to redesign Nirwana Golf Course. The course, which is located along the Indian Ocean, will be re-launched as a Trump International Golf Club.
"I've been fortunate to work on some great projects, but to contribute to what will be a six-star property is a rare and fabulous opportunity," said Mickelson in a press release. "The site is breathtaking and we will create a golf experience that presents both exciting options for players on the course and memories for a lifetime."
Mickelson has designed courses in Arizona (Whisper Rock), China (Mickelson Shanghai International), and Canada (Mickelson National Golf Club). The 47-year-old is also serving as a design advisor on the Greenbrier Course, one of four courses on the property of this week's Greenbrier Classic.
The Bali-based course will be Trump’s 19th golf property around the world, and his fourth in Asia.
