Palembang Golf Club is famously known as Kenten golf course because of its location on Kenten Hill of Palembang. The golf course was built by Stanvac oil company during the Dutch colonial era in 1926 on a 70-hectare land. It was listed in the Indonesian Golf Association (PGI) on March 10, 1970 and labeled as A.001.
Every hole of the course was designed to combine challenges, esthetics, and comfort. As one of the oldest courses, the course is well-experienced in hosting national, regional or even international events, suchas the 2001 International Senior Golf Open Championship, 2003 International Ladies Amateur, and 2004 National Games.
The course is located in the capital and can be reached within 20 minutes from international airport Sultan Mahmud Badaruddin II. The course is now owned and organized by local government and state oil company Pertamina. It is facilitated with a pro shop, VIP room, as well as driving range.
