Kalhaar Blues & Greens Golf Club, India0

The idyllic golf course in Ahmedabad, Kalhaar Blues & Greens is a world class championship 18 holes, 7425 yards, Par 72 layout designed by ‘Nicklaus Design’, a company owned by the legendary golfer and golf icon Jack Nicklaus.

Developed by the Navratna Group, the course complies with the United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications as well as the stringent and exacting standards of ‘Nicklaus Design’, making it one of the most exclusive and prestigious golf courses in the country. The course is spread over 175 acres and plays to 7425 yards from the championship tees, making it one of the longest golf courses in India.

The layout offers unique challenges and aesthetics, such as sand and beach bunkers, and 14 bodies of water that cover over 35 acres. In addition, the course features a scenic ‘Island green’ on Hole No. 7 – a 174 yards, Par 3. The course has been designed to be a cart course. Contouring across this rolling layout ranges from 1 to 5 meters and in line with being a best of its class design it features a state-of-the-art, computerised irrigation system. The entire golf course has been sand-capped to enable one of the finest water harvesting and drainage systems to drain rainwater and excess irrigation water to the lake. The course has two varieties of grass – MiniVerde for tees and greens, and Bermuda 419 for fairways and roughs. These grass varieties were selected by an expert agronomist, imported from the US, nurtured and propagated in an on-site nursery and then successfully transplanted onto the course.

The Kalhaar Blues & Greens campus includes a Golf Academy with a practice range, as well as chipping areas and putting greens that cater to beginning, amateur and professional golfers. The project also features a pro shop offering a comprehensive range of equipment, apparel and accessories.
