More than 500 Golfers walk into History every day, as they play in the country’s busiest course. The Club also has a Nine Hole B Course used primarily by beginners. The first hole on the main course is a 522 yards, PAR 5, which doglegs to the left around a thorny bush rough. Afternoon return back to Hotel.

Have breakfast and proceed to Golf Club. Starting a Golf Course in Chandigarh was conceived in the 50’s, it took almost 10 years for it to take shape. In 1960 a piece of land was allotted and the club was established with an initial membership of just 10 Golfers. The 09 Hole course was enlarged to 12, when the benevolent governor – who surrendered a major chunk of land from his official resident – granted additional land to the club in 1966. It was only as late as September 1983 that a regular 18 Hole PAR 72 Course was finally laid out over Sprawling 132 Acres. Afternoon return to hotel. Overnight at hotel.
After breakfast drive to Shimla. Afternoon city tour of Shimla. Overnight at hotel.
Shimla was summer capital during British Raj & no English Township could be completed without a golf course. A suitable site was finally chosen at Naldehra which is 23 KMS away from Shimla. Course is carpeted by a fine spirgy turf, which requires little maintenance. The PAR 68 Course is basically located in a bowl & has 09 Holes, which can be back played to 18. Come back to hotel for relaxing, dine and overnight stay.
Today we enjoy train journey from Shimla to Delhi. On arrival transfer to hotel. Overnight at hotel.
Transfer to airport for flight to Calcutta. On arrival transfer to hotel. Afternoon city tour. Overnight at hotel.
After breakfast transfer to Royal Calcutta Course. This course was originally paddy field hence consequently is very flat. Successive Committees have built mounds and planted thousands of trees and shrubs. But the Royal’s conspicuous features are its strategically located water tanks and natural water hazards. The most significant are the two large tanks across the tenth Fairway, the 457 yards PAR 04 hole. From the tee, the tiger line is over the first tank and must carry all of 230 yards. The after route to the right leaves a very long second shot over the second tank, a good 100 yards wide, to a small undulating green wickedly trapped all around. Return back to hotel to relax, dine and overnight stay.
Morning transfer to airport to connect flight to Chennai. On arrival transfer to hotel. Afternoon sight seeing tour of Chennai city. Overnight hotel.
After breakfast transfer to Madras Gymkhana Club, it was founded in 1886. Unique in that it is situated within the 2400metre oval of the guindy racecourse, it offers a challenging game. The fairways at guindy are flat and fast and encircled by the out of bounds racetrack. The greens are lush and well maintained and also strategically located, mostly along the track. Hazards on the course include not only thick rough, bunders and water tanks, but also unpredictable obstructions like the racehorses on their workouts. The first hole on this course is a heavy looking PAR 04 at 415 yards, it however takes a calculated and well lofted drive to avoid the bunkers placed on the fairway, 130 yards from the tee. The second hole is an easy PAR 03 at 170 yards, with a tricky green, at the gradient of almost 30 degrees. Overnight to be spent at hotel.
Free day to explore Chennai city, optional tour to Mahabalipuram or revisit to golf club. Overnight Chennai.
Transfer from hotel to airport for flight to Coimbatore on arrival at Coimbatore, three hours drive will take you to Ooty, a hill stations in South India. On arrival check in into the hotel. Dinner and overnight at hotel.
After breakfast proceed to Ooty Golf Course, it follows the soft contours of downland, with it’s tonsured effect of tree – bare heights, ringed with gorse and thickly wooded copses of Eucalyptus, Oak Rhododendron and fir in the Hollows. The altitude of 7600 feet a few degrees above the equator, provides a combination of light/thin air which is near intoxicant, and the ball travels much further than it would in plains because of the rarefied atmosphere. The Ooty Golf course is not only scenic but also quite tiring and it would be wise for the visitor to play only 09 of the 18 holes on the 01st day. Dinner & overnight at hotel.
Drive from Ooty to Bangalore, visiting beautiful country – side. Overnight at hotel in Bangalore.
After breakfast transfer to Bangalore Golf Club. The 18-hole course, started with browns, which were later converted to greens. Scarcity of water in the area is a major constraint and the course has very few water hazards. Besides trees and deep ditches, the major hazard on the course is the Bangalore crow, which often picks up the ball, mistaking it for an egg. It is therefore, not surprising that the logo of the Bangalore Golf Club depicts a crow with a ball in its beak. Overnight at hotel.
Transfer to airport for flight to Mumbai. On arrival transfer to hotel. Afternoon city tour. Overnight at hotel.
After breakfast transfer to Bombay presidency Golf Club, A green heaven amidst a concrete jungle. The 110 acre founded in 1827, the PAR 70, 18 hole course was redesigned by Peter Thompson to International Standards. Presidency’s fairways are narrow and tight, but its greens are undoubtedly the best in the country, the real test at presidency, however, is the variable and shifting sea breeze, which could fox even the most experienced player. It is not a difficult course, it’s not too long, not too narrow, and yet not an easy course to break par. The 5th hole is one of the most challenging on this Mumbai Course. A 480 yard, PAR 05, a dog leg to the right, with a fairway trap strategically placed to catch the long hitter trying to cut the corner. Afternoon drive back to hotel. Overnight to be spent at hotel.
Day free for personal activities. Overnight at hotel.
