GOLF INDIA TOUR
9 Nights / 10 Days
Golf courses with peacocks strutting, views of ancient tombs and monuments, sweeping city views in the distant, challenging narrow fairways, surrounding bird sanctuaries, and a botanical lushness rarely experienced elsewhere in the world on the back nine.
Itinerary Route: Mumbai - Jaipur - Agra - Delhi
Day 1: Mumbai Arrival
You will be greeted at the airport by a Tour Packages India Representative and escorted to your hotel by private AC car. Upon check-in, you'll be given a briefing on your tour program.
Day 2: Mumbai
Enjoy morning golf at the Mumbai Presidency Golf Course - literally a green heaven amidst a concrete jungle. The 110-acre course, founded in 1827, is a Par 70, 18-hole, 6,223 yard course designed to international standards. The fairways are narrow and tight, but its greens are undoubtedly the best in the country. The greatest challenge is the variable ocean wind conditions. Still, it's not considered a difficult course but a challenge to break par. The 5th hole is a 480 yard, Par 5 shot with a dogleg to the right and a fairway trap strategically placed to catch the long hitter trying to cut the corner.
Spend the afternoon/evening sightseeing - Prince of Wales Museum, Gateway to India, Gandhi Museum. See "Local Attractions" for a more detailed list of Mumbai points of interest.
Day 3: Mumbai to Jaipur (via Flight)
In the afternoon you'll be escorted to the airport where you'll catch the flight to Jaipur. In Jaipur, transfer to the hotel where you'll spend the next 3 nights.
Day 4: Jaipur
Golfing at the Jaipur Rambagh Golf Club will occupy your morning. The Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious golf clubs of India. The course, 18-hole and par 72, is strategically designed on a sandy loam soil. Views of some of Jaipur's most memorable monuments can be enjoyed along the entire course.
Spend the remainder of the day sightseeing. Jaipur has many points of interest. Please visit "Local Attractions" to see a comprehensive list of activities. No doubt, you'll have no problem filling your day.
Day 5: Jaipur
Sightseeing in the morning and golfing in the afternoon.
Day 6: Jaipur to Agra via Fatepuhr Sikri (245 km / 5 hour drive)
On the way to Agra, stop off at Fatehpur Sikri - an old deserted town of the Mughal Dynasty, built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 and abandoned after 15 years due to water scarcity. Later in the afternoon, check-in to your hotel in Agra. Of course, the Taj Mahal awaits - the best time to view the Taj is late afternoon to watch the changing colors of the Taj as the colorful sunsets reflect upon it.
Day 7: Agra
Spend the morning on the links of the Agra Club Golf Course with a distant view of the Taj Mahal. The golf course was created in 1904 and upgraded over the years to an 18-hole course. It has its own irrigation system for the fairways and the recently refurbished greens meet USPGA standards. The Club House is fully modernized and the balcony of the bar offers a dometop view of the Taj.
Later, visit the Agra Fort and do some sightseeing. See "Local Attractions" for a more detailed list of points of interest in Agra. Dine out as you like and spend the night.
Day 8: Agra to Delhi (215 km / 5 hour drive)
Spend the morning sightseeing, the afternoon driving to Delhi, and the evening as you wish.
Day 9: Delhi
Morning golfing at the Delhi Golf Course. The 6,972 yards, 18-hole, par 72 course covers more than 220 acres. The course is the former estate of the Lodhi rulers and contains a collection of historical tombs and monuments. It also serves as a sanctuary for over 300 species of birds, and the golfer is often startled by, or treated to, the rain dance of the colorful peacock or a scurrying partridge. With over 200 varieties of trees, the Delhi Golf Course is the lushest in the country, and its sandy loam has produced a rich turf for exacting fairway shots.
Spend the evening sightseeing. (See "Local Attractions" for a detailed list of Delhi highlights.) Delhi is estimated it to be over 5,000 years old - it is said to have been built and destroyed 11 times throughout its history. The population of Delhi is a heterogeneous mix of people originating from every corner of India. Undoubtedly, this will become obvious during your tour through the city. Delhi is by far the most cosmopolitan city in India and a true traveler's delight.
Day 10: Delhi Departure
Enjoy another morning of golf before afternoon check-out to your departure point.
