Amazing Golfing Destinations in North India

India is a land of scenic, beauty, adventure. And who doesn’t hold in eye a dream of being in a grass and beautiful place that offers a feeling of royalty of its own kind. Yes, we are talking about the Golf.

Golfing in India requires bit of effort as most of golf courses are privately owned and large number of them comes under the Armed forces, thus not open to public.

India offers a lot. The most popular sites in the north for golfing are none other than the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur) as they also combine the heritage, culture in the exciting golf tours and golf holidays to be experienced in India. The best recommended time to experience golf in India is between October to March with no rains, mild winter and low humidity during the time.
