India has a long history with golf, the first club established outside of the British Isles was the Royal Calcutta Club started in 1829 and after that, others followed suit in Bombay, Bangalore and Madras. Now there are courses throughout the country, and diversity is the name of the game! We have the highest golf course in the world in Sikkim, a course in the grounds of the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, a 9 hole course in the shadow of the Taj Mahal, a course in the middle of a horse racing track in Chennai, but as well as the original courses here, there is now an established international golfing scene and world class courses to complement these.
