Golf in Himachal

Golf in Himachal23 kms from Shimia, on a spur that extends from the Kufri massif, the Naldehra golf course has been in existence since the early twentieth century, it owes its existence to Lord Curzon, the British Viceroy of India who fell in love with the spot and often camped here for days on end. He was so enchanted by the spot, that he even named his daughter 'Naldera' after the place.  As a significant part of this romance.

Curzon suggested the layout of a golf course on the site. The course took shape on totally natural topography - which remains unchanged to the present day. Given the point of time when manicured greens took the place of Himalayan grassland, this is perhaps the oldest golf course in this part of the world.

Designed over a long sloping glade, the Naldehra course is regarded as one of the most challenging ones in the country. This is a par 68 course with nine holes. The yardage of the first round is 2149 and in the repeat nine, there are four additional greens and different tees which increases the yardage of the second round to 2370.

In 2005, the Naldehra Golf Club celebrates its centenary. Accomodation and 'Learn Golf' packages are available with Himachal Tourism and details of membership, affiliations and use of the greens on a daily basis may also be had. Accommodation in the private sector is also available near the golf course.

The normal calendar of events at Naldehra begins from April and continues into October.

The tournaments include The Medal Round, Stableford Tournament, Lucky Doubles, One Club, Against Bogey, Naldehra Open Championship, Women Medal Round, Civil vs. Army Match, and the Monthly Medal Round which is held on the third Sunday of every month for players to establish handicap.
