Kimmane Golf Resort, a nine-hole development, designed by Pacific Coast Design in Shivamoga, North West Karnataka, is the newest addition to the list of India’s golf courses.

Weekend golf

The project, in construction for two years, is located 250 kms or a 6 hour drive from Bangalore, making it a good choice for a weekend getaway.

The nine-hole course is a par-35, 3236 yards with the highlight being the par-3 island green, one of the few of its kind in India ready to challenge and entertain golfers of all levels. The Resort has accommodation, restaurants, swimming pool and indoor activities and was inaugurated on Nov 30th by the Chief Minister of Karnataka, B.S. Yediyurappa.

With work commencing in Dwarka, New Delhi on the Delhi Development Authority’s new 18-hole championship public course and a 50 bay driving range and academy ready to open in North Bangalore, there is some good news for the future growth of the game.

Aamby Valley’s reopening

In a welcome announcement for golfers in Mumbai and Pune, Aamby Valley, which had been closed for the past few years due to the Sahara group’s internal problems, has reopened and is selling limited-term memberships.

As one of the only handful of world-class international championship golf courses in the country, Aamby Valley’s reopening has been welcomed, particularly by Mumbai golfers who are limited to just three golf courses compared to over a dozen in New Delhi.

The 18 holes, par 72 championship quality course, a two-hour drive from Mumbai city used to be a favourite with its sublime beauty and challenging rugged layout and has hosted an Asian Tour event besides several other local corporate and amateur tournaments.
