Imagine playing Golf in the greens closely surrounded by hills and distantly by mountains. Imagine walking these greens which are interspersed with natural-springs-derived water fountains. Imagine the weather to consistently hover around 15 degrees Celsius presenting a cool and pleasant weather and the openness of the course adds a touch of a swaying breeze. And you don’t have to be a golfer to walk this golfing-paradise! You could just unwind or catch a tan.
The Royal Springs Golf Course was laid out amidst the natural beauty of Kashmir against the backdrop of Zabarwan Mountains at an altitude of 8800 feet, adjacent to the Chashm-e-Shahi Gardens. Srinagar city which is unbelievably rich in history and architecture, has now added a ‘precision club and ball sport course’ to its list. Sprawled over 300 acres of rolling turf, lakes and wilderness this golf course overlooks the enchanting Dal Lake. The golf course is also home to some colourful birds that nest in the bushy trees during summers.
The Golf Clubhouse enveloped by tall trees is what one would be greeted with at the entrance of the course. The stretch of Golf Course is visible only after one crosses the Clubhouse. Royal Springs is a professional 18-hole, par 72-track that covers an area of about 22 000 sq feet which makes the course very challenging.
