Golf in India has a long history, going back to 1829, when the Royal Calcutta Golf Club, the oldest golf club in the world, outside of Great Britain was formed. The Royal as it is popularly known crowns a highly under-rated golfing landscape that offers a stimulating mix of colonial heritage, breathtaking locales and challenging modern day designs by names that include Robert Trent Jones Jr, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Ronald Fream and Phil Ryan.

India golf offers a lot – the unspoilt beauty and adventure in Himalayan Kashmir, Himachal and Uttaranchal to Ayurveda in the backwaters of Kerala; the monuments and heritage of bygone dynasties – especially in the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur to the colonial splendour and its remnants in Kolkata; the magnificent forests and wildlife scattered all across the country to the obvious exuberance of urban living in Mumbai and Bengaluru. And no matter what the attraction, there almost always are interesting golf possibilities nearby. And exciting golf tours and golf holidays to be experienced in India.

India’s climate between October to March is unsurpassable with almost no rain, balmy days with low humidity and mild winters, making it one of the best places to travel and golf in during that period.

Travelling within India by Road & Rail: India is a large country and it is not recommended to do very long journeys by road within the country. National highways are generally in good condition. Self-drive is not recommended as the road rules are not necessarily followed and can seem chaotic for foreigners used to more stringent road rules. Chauffeured transfers are recommended.

The railway network is government owned and is a good way to see the country by taking overnight trains. However, train tickets are in high demand and many times if you don’t book way in advance, you will not be able to get a confirmed booking.
