गोल्फ कोर्स (नालदेरा)


    Naldehra is located at a distance of 22 kms from Simla, the capital city of Himachal Pradesh. Mashobra Naldehra and Tattapani are on the same route so all the three places are covered in one go by the tourists in general. Tattapani is 30 Kms from this place, tourists wanting their trip to cover Kufri generally drop this place from their eternity. 

    The highlight at Naldehra is the 9 hole golf course measuring 4,285 yards which was suggested and developed by Lord Curzon the then Viceroy of India in the early 1900s.

    It is probably the oldest golf course in India. Captivated by the beauty of the place, surrounded by a thick forest of Himalayan cedar, which was also his favourite camping site just outside the British summer capital, he established what today is one of the most scenic golf courses in the country. He was so fantasized with this place that he named his third daughter as Alexandra Naldehra.
    Initially a 9 Hole Course, the Naldehra golf course was expanded to 18 holes, and further expansion has been planned to make the course at par with the best in the country.
    It is possible to play on the course by paying a daily green fee or take temporary, annual or life membership. Equipment is available on hire as well.
    The course is presently maintained and run by Himachal Tourism. accommodation and food are available on the premises.
    The course is open throughout the year. The perfect season for golfing in Naldehra is from April to October and the best golfing months are the monsoon ones- July, August and September when the naturally watered turf is rich and springy and the yardage increases.
