Golf Tour in Nepal - 05 Days

Tantalizing Greenery at the Gokarna Golf Course in Nepal.

Once only a favorite outdoor pick of the aristocrats, Golfing is gradually becoming a household name in Nepal. This exorbitant sport was first brought to our Himalayan terra firma by the former Royals. The history of golf in Nepal traces back to the time when a delegation of Rana ministers returned home from a visit to Scotland with golf clubs. They started playing golf in “Gaucharan”, where the Tribhuwan International Airport is currently located.  However the expanse of Gaucharan had to be shortened as longer runways were needed for bigger aircrafts. Since then several golf courses have been established in Nepal. The first real golf tournament, “Lava Cup” was started in 1920. Some of the golf courses which are currently operational in Nepal are: Gokarna Forest Golf Resort & Royal Nepal Golf Course in Kathmandu, Himalayan Golf Club & Fulbari Resort Golf Course in Pokhara and Nirvana Country Club in Dharan.

Golf is best when played between the months of March and October. Golf clubs in Kathmandu and Pokhara offer excellent verdant courses with magnificent views of the Himalayas under the crystal clear blue sky. The Gokarna Forest Golf Resort is one of the finest in South Asia. It is a 72-course golf area with 18 holes. This course is set in an old forest area of the Kathmandu Valley. The “Harmony Spa” located in absolute proximity to the resort is akin to a soothing oasis for the golfers. The Royal Nepal Golf Course, another golfing paradise established in 1829 at Kathmandu's Til Ganga, is one of the oldest courses in Nepal as well as the whole of Asia. The course was conferred the title of 'Royal' in the year 1911.

Golf, the favorite time-pass for the wealthy gentries, has now been endorsed as an actual sport in Nepal. In 2007, the SAARC Golf Championship was held in Nepal, in which Nepal bagged the 2nd position, losing to Sri Lanka.

Golf

Golf is one of the sophisticated sports and also regarded as a “gentleman’s game”. Golf accessories are usually quite expensive, yet, most of the golfers opt to have their own golfing stuff. These items are also easily available on rent. Golfers are generally the most good -looking guys on the fields as far as the dressing is concerned. But there are people who might be too casual about the dress code too. It’s very difficult to formulate a perfect checklist for this sport, but we have managed to list out some basic requisites.

Clothing is not actually a major concern when it comes to golf. While there are some common conventions associated with the game, the truth of the matter is that a player need not be specific as far as his/her clothing is concerned. As this sport necessitates frequent bending, stretching and swinging, it is important that one’s clothing should freely allow such postures. The most common type of clothing associated with golf is the "golf apparel", which often takes the form of Polo /Cabana shirts, Twill Pants- especially Khakis, and Ball Caps or Visors. Sunglasses are considered by most a necessity, as are the golfing gloves.

 

  • Equipments

Backpack/Rucksack

Duffle bag (will be provided by Marron Treks as a complimentary gear and you needn't return it)

  • Medicaments

It is important that you include the medicines prescribed by your doctor. Below is just the generic list of medications.
