Most exotic course in the world

While Augusta National might be steeped in tradition; the Himalayan Golf Course (HGC) in Pokhara, Nepal is steeped in some of the largest mountains in the world. Set within a sweeping canyon created by Himalayan snow water, the HGC is truly the most exotic golf course in the world.

THE HIMALAYAN GOLF COURSE (HGC)
  • Located just seven kilometers (4.35 miles) away from downtown Pokhara, the twice played 9-hole course is well laid out for championships at 6,900 yards with a par of 73
  • It has 11 greens and different tee positions and lies for the most part inside a sweeping canyon created by the Himalayan snowed waters of the Bijayapur river
  • The course incorporates Scottish-influenced features such as fairway mounding, split fairways and the use of natural landforms and nature to shape the course
  • The course has been the venue for the Nepal Surya Western (professional) Open for the past seven years.
  • Framed by the towering the Annapurna range, cattle and buffalo roam freely providing most of the grass mowing
  • The signature fifth hole is known to be one of the only natural river island holes in the world
  • The Club house is perched on the edge of balcony land 250 feet above the river canyon from where you have a bird eye view below of the golf course with scenes of stunning canyon walls dotted with eagles nests, waterfalls, and the soothing sight and sound of the Himalayan snowfed river meandering through the golf course
