Day 02: In Kolkata
Morning play golf at Tollygunge Golf Club.
The extensive grounds of the club were originally an indigo plantation, laid out in 1781. In 1895 , Sir William Cruikshank, a banker of repute and a keen sportsman, acquired the estate from Prince Ghulam Mohammad, the son of Tipu Sultan, and founded the Tollygunge. Besides maintaining an 18 hole golf course, the Tollugunge Club also pioneered equestrian sports, and steeple chasing and show jumping and still held annually at the Club.
The 6520 yards, Par 71 course at Tollugunge is fairly easy to tackle but for the large number of water hazards. The fairways are lush green and wide, and the greens well maintained and easy to read. A particularly difficult hole is the 321 yards, par four fourteenth, also known as ‘Hydrophobia’. The player has to cross over a large water tank, built by Prince Ghulam Mohammad and filled with water lilies, to approach the green on the other side. A miscalculated or over swung drive could easily land the ball in the tank or the out-of-bounds area.
Afternoon half day city sightseeing tour of KOLKATA visiting the Jain Temple, Zoological Gardens and Victoria Memorial. Also drive past Howrah Bridge, Dalhousie Square, Fort William, Secretariat building, and Old Court House street.Overnight at the hotel.
Day 03: In Kolkata
Morning play golf at ROYAL KOLKATA GOLF CLUB.
ROYAL KOLKATA GOLF CLUB The Royal Calcutta Golf Club, established in 1829, is not only the oldest golf club in India but the oldest in the world outside Great Britain. Originally located near the Calcutta airport, the club moved to the Maidan and finally to its present location at Tollygunge in 1910.
Greens at Royal are small by modern standards, but undulations make them tricky, and there is a little nap. From the tee the course looks deceptively easy, but its strength lies in its par fours, and to score requires good long and medium irons. The most significant are the two large tanks across the tenth fairway, the 457 yards par-4 jinx hole. From the tee, the tiger line is over the first tank and must carry all of 230 yards. The after route to the right leaves a very long second shot over the second tank, a good 100 yards wide, to a small undulating green wickedly trapped all around.
Afternoon free at leisure. Over night at the hotel.
