Let's Fly the Red and White Flag!
This August, Indonesian golfers will compete at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang. They will face strong teams opposition from other Asian countries. As the host country, Indonesia certainly has an advantage that could help to produce positive results for the national team, although anything can happen once the players are out on the course. However, we are confident that our athletes want to achieve the very best results to represent their home nation with pride.
Golf at the 2018 Asian Games will be held at Pondok Indah Golf Course in Jakarta from 23 to 26 August 2018. There will be four events: the men's individual and team events, and the women's individual and team events.
