Team RB send messages to EGP Members!

Mr. Zulkhairi – Golf Course Maintenance

We have recently installed the hands-free ball picker, where golfers don’t need to pick the ball from the cup. With this, golfers can simply use the putter to lift the catch and retrieve the ball without touching it. We have implemented that rakes are removed from the bunkers and moved onto the buggy. The only person to rake the bunkers is the caddy, again minimising contact all round. GCM staff have daily briefings are always reminded on health protocols. Green conditions are well maintained and there are no dull areas, even during the rainy season.
For our beloved members, we are abiding by all health protocols, please don’t hesitate to come back. We strive to always maintain better course condition to let you have the best experience at Ria Bintan Golf Club.

Ms. Fransiska – Senior GRO

We have implemented new hygiene measures, with regular training for employees such as frequent hand washing, social distancing, avoidance of contact and regular cleaning of high-touch areas such as Guest Relations Desk. The GRO area and hotel lobby are regularly disinfected. Guest Relations staff work in mask and gloves. Hand sanitiser and disinfectant products are always available. Room keys are disinfected on a regular basis before/after each check-in/out.
To our beloved members “We miss you very much, your second home is waiting. We seriously cannot wait to welcome you all again at Ria Bintan. Till then, please stay safe, stay home and keep social distance”.



Ms. Eka – Golf Operations

To guard against Covid-19, we always sanitise every golf bag, as well as disinfect all buggies. Our operating hours are from 8 AM – 5 PM.

In the Proshop we have a strict routine – thoroughly clean the Pro Shop areas, check inventory, and do reports. We miss the guests coming from the ferry, especially the members of Ria Bintan who register and shop at the Pro Shop. We miss preparing course tickets for the group. We hope that Covid-19 passes so that we can all return to normal activities.
                                                 Stay safe and healthy.



Ms. Anggi – Restaurant

The world is facing a deadly virus that is very disruptive and detrimental to everyone in terms of health, economy, and humanity. For this reason, Ria Bintan Golf Club is very strict according to the established health protocols from the guests, employees, and even all the environmental areas.
Unfortunately, our overseas guests are also unable to visit Indonesia at this time. We miss the guests who come here to visit and play golf, especially the Members who come here often. We really miss them. Do you miss Ria Bintan our beloved members?
We hope this situation will get better and we can meet all of you. Please, always take care of your health.

We’ve been working to maintain the greens and also made changes at the Driving Range area. There are benches but no umbrellas, following Government guidelines to capture sunlight for prevention of Covid-19 infection and to keep ourselves healthy. Golfers can practice on the grass with no green mat and umbrella, and besides this, we maintain practice under the roof as well.
During this Pandemic, operating hours are from 8 am to 5 pm, we are on standby and the driving range is always open 7 days a week. For all our lovely members, we are waiting for your return.

Mr. Ichwan – Men’s Locker

 Driving Range for your

Practice Pleasure!

Hot off the press! Ria Bintan has most recently made some improvements to our Driving Range so that your practice session is fun and comfortable!

New tables with large, shady umbrellas have been installed, alongside chairs, a golf set rack and unlimited range balls for as long as you can hit! These have been positioned so that your little bay area is a relaxing zone for you to work on your swing, and you even get to hit off the actual turf!

Feel free to order drinks too, from Tee Off restaurant and it will be served up at your bay.
Golf practice has never looked so good!

 Members’ Appreciation Evening

Thanks to our members and guests who attended the recent year-end Members’ Appreciation Evening that was held at GolfTec in Singapore! 

Besides yummy cocktail food and some lovely organic French wine, all attendees also got to enjoy a Par 3 Putting Challenge and Nearest to Pin competition with the GolfTec simulator! The winners walked away with some goodies and prizes from Ria Bintan Golf Club! 

Thanks to all who came and had some fun, as well as our partners GolfTec and Eiffel Markets, hope you all enjoyed the chill evening!

Organic Wines from Eiffel Markets, France

All who attended the Members evening with us at GolfTec got to enjoy some lovely organic wine from France. Eiffel Markets in Singapore brings in good quality wine from the wine-growing regions of Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire Valley, Rhone Valley, Languedoc and Provence. Most of their wines are certified organic or biodynamic, made in respect of the environment and consumers, without the agrochemicals, oenological additives and technological processes used in commercial brands. You can expect their wines to be pure, clean, fruity and easy to drink, representing the typicity and diversity of French wine regions.

That evening, Ria Bintan had selected two wines for members’ drinking pleasure. First up was the Domaine Plouzeau, Touraine Sauvignon Blanc ‘La Bonneliere’ 2018 – which was bright, clear and had a lovely nose of exotic fruits and citrus. On the palate it’s dry, powerful with good minerality. Best served at 10 degrees Celsius and paired with a seafood platter or goat cheese salad. Only 16,000 bottles of this wine is produced each year. 

Moving on to the second wine of the evening, the Chateau de la Marjoliere, Cahors 2014 is a deep red 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot wine with a nose of violet, berries and spices. It’s palate is medium with a fruity character, delicate in tannins and acidity. This wine is best served at 16 degrees Celsius and pairs nicely with ribeye steak and french fries, duck leg confit or Provencale dishes with tomatoes and wild herbs. 

Both these wines are reasonably priced for their quality and are available from Eiffel Markets’ online store at:  https://eiffelmarkets.com

Free delivery for purchases of $200 and up. 

Thank you Guillaume for attending with us!

First Edition – Ria Elite Challenge Trophy,
June 2019!

The first instalment of the Ria Elite Challenge Trophy medals took place at Ria Bintan Golf Club on 22 and 23 June! Some 20 EGP Members and guests participated in an engaging round of 18 hole golf on the Ocean Blue and Ocean Green courses, on a day that was a little cloudy yet cooler for the day’s exertions.

The golfers took to the course and played through challenges, finishing the round to a System 36 scoring format. Lunch buffet spread was welcomed by the hungry golfers, and no sooner than when all started to tuck into the yummies, the skies opened and a huge rainstorm came! How fortunate that the golf round was completed, it’s been unusually wet season of late.

Prizes were handed out to the winners and runners up for Members Men, Ladies and Guest divisions, as well lucky draw prizes kindly sponsored by Ria Bintan. These included golf clubs, equipment, goodie bags as well as Ria Bintan Golf Lodge room and breakfast vouchers. No one won the Hole In One Prize of SGD 1000.00. Better luck next time!
