Heritage Golf India

Hosted By Adam Clarke and Lincoln Harris

13 Days | 29 January – 10 February 2018 | Limited to 12 passengers

If you are playing a course you have never seen, my best advice is to ‘leave your home course at home’. When playing a new course in a new environment, shots may not fly at the same distance or the ground may respond differently than your regular course. Away from home, you’ve got to adjust your thinking and take into account the environment or you will choose and hit the wrong shot every time.

Overnight at The Oberoi Grand, Kolkata

Golfing at the Royal is about more than just the sport. It’s about connecting with the heritage of golf. The Royal is the oldest club outside the UK and the club is proud and protective of its heritage. That’s evident when you play and speak to anyone at the club – be it the secretary or the staff in the proshop. With a gentrified, colonial atmosphere and serene, well-maintained grounds – visiting the Royal is a memorable experience. Golf, relax in the wicker chairs of the dining room and take in the portraits of club presidents on the walls of the clubhouse.
