Mickelson to renovate Bali course for a Trump property

BALI, Indonesia (AP) Phil Mickelson has been selected to redesign an 18-hole golf course in Bali that will become Trump International Golf Club.

Mickelson's design team will be working with Indonesia property developer MNC Land and The Trump Organization to redesign Nirwana Golf Course, which is located along the Indian Ocean.

Mickelson has designed courses in Arizona (Whisper Rock), China (Mickelson Shanghai International) and Canada (Mickelson National Golf Club). He refers to the Bali project as a six-star property.

The golf course is owned by MNC Land and is part of the Bali Nirwana Resort. It is expected to close on July 31 to start renovation in a high-end resort operated by The Trump Organization.

It will be Trump's 19th golf property around the world, and his fourth in Asia.
