The Golf Course
Our Golf Course today presents a picturesque and lush green look and remains the most preferred and sought-after Golf Course in the region. The feedback received from members, distinguished guests, professional Golfers, Visitors etc. is extremely positive and reflective of an outstanding Golf Course. Our continued objective is to present the best manicured course that can be achieved with the available resources.
The other objective is to do as much as possible to weather-proof our Golf Course so that during the monsoon and other rainy days the course can be kept opened for members. There was a temporary disruption in play due to the unprecedented flood and renovation works under taken thereafter. The inconvenience was unavoidable and the changes have resulted in a course which is more challenging, satisfying, and competitive and weather proof to certain extent.
Tamil Nadu Golf Federation continues to provide a quality course that meets or exceeds the demand of its Members, Guest and Visitors.
Two different Tees Boxes were introduced for each hole.i.e., Blue, and Red to meet the requirement of all Golfers as per their age, gender and choice. All the 18 Greens have now been re-laid with larger surface area and additional bunkers with proper drainage system.
The task was never going to be easy. Contour survey and mapping of the entire area was meticulously carried out and after the work was complete, a comprehensive map of the underground system like irrigation and electric cabling was systematically recorded. Proper drainage ensures that excess water is removed quickly after even the heaviest rains
Today, the tough 6,225 yard, 72-par, fully integrated 18-hole course, is a haven for golfers comprising multinational and multi - ethnic communities, apart from becoming a cynosure for golf lovers of the city and form all over the country. Tiff dwarf grass, that is both robust and naturally adaptive to local conditions, was planted on the greens which are all tailor made to USGA specifications. An integrated driving range provides an opportunity to both beginners and seasoned golfers to practice assiduously and constantly raise the bar of their performance.
The early days witnessed the basic maintenance and even the survival of the course, purely through donation of course equipment by philanthropic players. Today, the course is maintained throughout the year, by state -of- art machinery that serve every need be it maintaining the fairways, the first and second cuts, the bordering roughs or the delicate greens. Large, but carefully weighed and considered investments in turf mowing and maintenance equipment, and an automated and programmable irrigation system have paid rich dividends in an enviable facility, attracting golfers from all over the country and beyond its shores.
