Teeing off at the KGA

Young golfer tries his skills under the watchful eyes of his dad at the Karnataka Golf Association (KGA) on a lazy Saturday. The KGA is one of 6 golf courses in Bangalore. 3 are owned by the military, the other two are Eagleton and the historic Bangalore Golf Club.

The 18 hole Golf Course is international class, spread over 124 acres of land. The KGA was designed by the legendary golfer from Australia Peter Thomson of M/s.Thomson Wolveridge Associates of Australia who have designed more than 5 golf courses in India. KGA is among the top 4 Golf Courses in the Country. It is a flat 6,786-yard par-72 layout. Major Tournaments Held : Classic Masters, All India Amateur and the All India Ladies Amateur.

There more than 12 member categories and getting membership is an arduous task. Even Rishad the son of the world's richest men Aziz Premji (Chairman of Wipro) is wait-listed to be a life member despite a fee of Rs. 15,00,000!!! The wait-list queue for being a permanent member is 1360.

For the not so lucky, I guess its good luck with Microsoft Golf 3.0!
