Naldehra Golf Course 1905

On a spur that extends from the Kufri massif, the Naldehra Golf Course has been in existence from the early twentieth century, it owes its existence to Lord Curzon the British victory of India who fell in love with the spot & often camped here for days on end. He was so enchanted by the spot. That he even named his daughter Naldera after the place.
As a significant part of this romance, Curzon suggested the layout of a Golf Course on the site. The course took shape on totally natural topography which remains unchanged to the present day. Given the point of time when manicured green took the place of Himalayan Grassland, This is perhaps the oldest Golf Course in this part o the world. Naldehra is eighteen (18) holes, par 68 Course with 4423 yards. The yardage in the second round designed over a long sloping glade, the course is regarded as one of the most challenging ones in the country. Set below a thicket of Deodar tree, Naldehra probably owes its name to NALDEO the NAG DEVTA or serpent deity whose temple still stands on the greens.
