Kashmir Golf Tour

Kashmir offers the golfer some exciting rounds. From April through to the Autumn, the cooler temperatures allow the golfer to enjoy this superb sport. Both Srinagar and Gulmarg have exciting golf courses to play. Both challenge golfers with their idiosyncratic fairways and bunkers. Gulmarg, at 2650 metres above sea level is an 18 hole, 72 par course. Golf here is steeped in history: the British founded the club, and in later years, before the troubles in the Valley, the Northern Indian Championships were held here.
The courses had delightful names including 'Rabbits Course and Upper Golf Course. Today playing all year round - snow permitting - the mossy turf is soft and mixed with a variety of grasses.
It's fast to play on and, with the combination of the thin air (the ball literally 'whistles' as it flies through the air) makes for a very exciting golfing experience. Srinagar offers the Royal Springs Golf Course, a testing 18 hole, par 72 course designed by Robert Trent Jones -11. Spread over 300 acres of undulating fairways and greens, the course uses the natural landscape to challenge the most discerning gofer. The setting is delightful and the magnificent ruins of the Pari Mahal make a haunting backdrop. The course is open all year round.

Gulmarg
At an altitude of 2650m the historic Gulmarg Golf Club was formed in 1911 by the British - although in fact golf actually started here in 1890 when the first 6 hole course was built by Colonel Neville Chamberlain. Additional ‘browns’ were soon added and the course became known as ‘The Upper Course. Later in 1915 the nine hole ‘Rabbits Course’ was built.

Today, guests can enjoy a challenging 18 hole course designed by Peter Thomson Associates of Australia set amidst stunning views. The course has a fascinating peculiarity - due to the rarefied atmosphere the ball ‘whistles’ as it heads for the next hole!

Over the years the club has hosted many prestigious events including the Northern Indian championship.
Guests are invited to enjoy the benefits of the Club House with its restaurant. In town there are numerous Pro-golf shops.

Course details:
18 hole par 72
The turf is soft since it is buried (often for months at a time) in the winter snows. The greens are fast and comprise of a mixture of moss and grass. The course follows the natural slope of the land and, in the thin air, expect the ball to travel a lot further!

Royal Springs Golf Course - Srinagar
Designed by the internationally renowned Golf course designer – Robert Trent Jones Jr.11 - the 300 acre sprawling course, near the famous Cheshma Shahi, overlooks the stunning Dal Lakes and is framed by the dramatic Zabarwan Hills. A new club house, built in a sympathetically traditional Kashmiri style is soon to be opened and will offer: changing rooms, bar, restaurant, billiards, cards and ping-pong. Plus a Pro-shop for all the golfers need.

Course Details:
18 hole – 6445 metres – Par 72
The fairways are turfed with a mix of rye and Kentucky blue grass. Tall trees bordering the fairways can outwit the unwary player!

Kashmir Golf Club, Srinagar
The Kashmir Golf Club is ideal for those wishing to take up the challenges of this addictive game in the more temperate climate of Srinagar. The sprawling 52 acre course adjoins the centrally located Maulana Azad Road - the City’s main avenue, thus enabling visiting business people to enjoy a round or two close to their hotel or conference centre.

The Kashmir Golf Club has been the venue of many tournaments, and with an extended season from April to November allows players to enjoy a longer than average season.

The club has produced many famous Pros - principally Ghulam Mohammad who taught many an aspiring player including the ex-Chief Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah.

Course Details:
18 hole. Par 70
With well laid out bunkers and hazards, interspersed between chinars & pine
