About this course
The Chandigarh Golf Club (CGC) was commissioned in 1962 & is located just south of the Sukhna Lake & adjacent to the residence of the Punjab governor. The course was initially a 9 hole course. In 1989 a further 9 holes were commissioned to make it a full fledged 18 hole course. There is a road that bisects the course. The 9 holes closer to the clubhouse & on one side of the road are what was the OLD course while the next 9 holes on the other side of the road is the NEW course.
The home course of Jeev Milka Singh, some of India’s top golfers come from this club. The list includes Harmeet Kahlon, Sujjan Singh, Amandeep Johl, Gurbaaz Mann, Harinder Gupta, Ranjit Singh, Abhijeet Chadha, H.S. Kang, Irina Brar etc.
The course is a green lung for the city with its rich & varied species of trees and shrubs & is known for its tight fairways, which are lined with Mango, Jamun, Eucalyptus & Kikar orchards trees. With tough roughs & fast greens which are as per USGA specifications a round here is bound to be enjoyable.
With immaculate fairways & greens, a large clubhouse, a rapidly growing golf fraternity & 9 floodlit holes to allow for late tee offs, this course is the premier golf course in & around Chandigarh.
With a floodlit driving range & a long list of professionals to teach, access to the game of golf is not very difficult.
