Golf in Goa is a wonderful experience. It is a space that is definitely unexplored, save for a handful of resorts that have tiny courses on their properties. But for the real thing you need to travel to the southern tip of the state – to the Goa Golf Greens. The Lalit Resort at Rajbaga, Cancona, is home to Goa Golf Greens, the country’s first and only international standard Links Golf Course. Surrounded by the luxurious ambience of the five – star resort, the golf course is a masterpiece featuring unobtrusive sand mounds and grassed fairways along the Arabian Sea.
Goa Golf Greens is a 9 hole, 36 par golf course with 27 gents’ and 9 ladies’ tees. It can be played through 18 holes with different tee boxes measuring 5977 yards. Holes 4, 5, 6 & 7 have a fantastic ocean view and the gorgeous breeze from the sea often challenges players.
The course is playable all year round and this golfer’s paradise, with constantly changing sea winds providing that extra dimension to the game of golf, is a delight to master, both for the seasoned golfer as well as the enthusiastic novice. The Goa Golf Greens Proshop, managed by a Golf Pro, provides the requisite equipment and accessories. In fact a must try is one of their golf camps that take beginners and regular players through a rigorous course to improve their handicaps. So the next time you’re in the mood for a birdie, take a trip down to the Goa Golf Greens.
