PM: One round of golf - 9 holes golf at Himalayan Golf Course

A GOLFING HIGH AT POKHARA'S HIMALAYAN GOLF COURSE
Pokhara maybe well known for its awe-inspiring mountain scenery but a great many golfers are now discovering that if you want a real golfing high, The Himalayan Golf Course, Pokhara is the place to head for in Nepal. It’s a must for the golfing connoisseur.

Himalayan Golf Course has certainly been very successful in putting Pokhara in the golfer's map. The course was designed and constructed by an Ex British Army Sand Hurst commissioned officer Major Ram Gurung MBE, and opened for play in January 1998.The course has been the venue for the Nepal Surya Western Open for the past five years. The championship course layout is a par73, 6900 yards with 12 greens and different tee positions lies for the most part inside a sweeping canyon created by the Himalayan snowed waters of the Bijayapur River.

Play on the 1st and 2nd holes at the HGC Pokhara's inaugural course is fairly straightforward as these par 4's are laid out on relatively level ground on each side of the clubhouse.

Your baptism to the truly unique character of this course comes when you step up to the 3rd tee to be confronted with a flawless panorama which encompasses the magnificent Fishtail and Annapurna mountain range. Below your elevated tee you see and hear the meandering Bijaypur Himalayan River some 300 feet below, sheer canyon walls dotted with eagle's nests, waterfalls which burst into life during the monsoon and a barely perceptible flag. Some 300 yards distant and 90 feet below, this small triangular piece of fabric marks the place where your ball should end up after only four strokes.

There is no other experience that duplicates or even comes close to the thrill of teeing off on the3rd. Equally though, successfully landing the ball on the 5th green, which is known to be the only natural river island hole in the world, in the middle of Bijaypur river, and victoriously blasting the ball towards the 490 yards 7th hole, part of this being over the river, to a green overshadowed by the dramatic Blue Pool Rock certainly rank as achievements at what must certainly be one of Asia's most amazing golf courses.

The course has been featured in many international magazines including the ‘Golf World’, movies and travel films. Some of the comments from the club's visitor’s book are noteworthy:

Client Reviews

My husband and I went on a trek in Nepal this past August, and we had a fabulous time. It was truly the most unique, beautiful outdoor travel experience that either of us have ever had. For anyone considering trekking in the Himalayas, we highly recommend Raj Tamang as a guide. His company, Responsible Adventures (www.responsibleadventures.com) and (www.notjusttreks.com), is professional and customer-service oriented. We were amazed at the ways that Raj and his employees went above and beyond to make this experience memorable for us. Raj is a 'walking encyclopedia' of information about the culture and history of Nepal, and his confident, welcoming nature put us at ease. He was experienced at facilitating positive, genuine interaction between Himalayan villagers and Western trekkers such as ourselves, and that made all the difference in our 10 days touring the Manang valley. His company offers a service that is truly a cut above the rest.

We can't wait for another opportunity to trek with Raj! Feel free to check out our story and pics at www.joshandelise2008.blogspot.com
