India has a long and thrilling history of golf as a leisure activity ever since the first golf course was established in 1829 by the British, outside the British Isles - that was the Royal Calcutta Golf Club - or rather the Dum Dum Golfing Club. Today golfers have a wide spectrum of geographic settings, challenging courses and an array of facilities to endorse the legend that golf is a gentleman’s sport. Today it’s not only a place to challenge yourself, it’s also the perfect place for corporate networking and wheeling and dealing, as the environs are so conducive. From the beautiful location of Srinagar’s Zaberwan Hills in the north to the pristine expanses of the Bangalore Gold club there are treats galore to be enjoyed. With international standards being introduced whether it’s a Jack Nicklaus- designed course or a state-of the art golf set, India is very happening on the golf circuit, with lots of tournaments organized each year.
