Inspired by the myth, magic and mystery of the once forbidden valley, David Kidd of Gleneagles Golf Developments, pitted his skills against those of nature, creating a golf masterpiece. Spread over 140 acres at 4,550 ft above sea level, the 6,755 yard par 72 course boasts the only bentgrass greens on an 18 hole course in South and South East Asia.
Professionals from across the world have visited Gokarna Forest Resort to experience the divine sprit of the environment and uniqueness of the golf course. The serenity and settings are overwhelming with the only distraction probably being the sighting of a spotted deer, a barking deer or monkeys who wander freely in the vicinity.
Soft cushions of local Bermuda fairways, lush unyielding forests, winding streams, wandering hills and valleys that open to a holy river’s plain. Cynical monkey’s watch your progress. Shy spotted deer peer through the trees. The lofty Himalayas keep your score. A delight for recreational golfers and one of the pleasurable highlights of the professional tour in the region.
