Day 1: Monday 07 November – DELHI

Namaste… and welcome to Delhi – city of the Djinns and 25 million people.

On arrival at Delhi International Airport, you will be met by our local representative and transferred by private car to your luxurious hotel, Le Meridien, home for the next 5 nights. You have the evening at leisure to discover the hotel facilities or venture beyond the hotel to soak up the atmosphere.

LE MERIDIEN

Day 2: Tuesday 08 November – DELHI

Meet your Go Golfing Tour Host and fellow travellers for a leisurely breakfast. Keen to discover India’s golfing gems, our first round is at Delhi Golf Club – Delhi’s oldest and most prestigious golf club. Originally called the “Lodhi Golf Course”, it is brimming with reminders of bygone times predating the Moghul Empire. Amongst the ruined tombs of a mighty empire, this championship 18-hole Lodhi Course, part of the Asian PGA Tour, is home to 300 species of birds.

While you are enjoying your first round of golf, the non-golfers will gently immerse themselves into the traditional way of Indian life with a beginners Yoga session.

Tonight we have a welcome dinner inclusive of beverages hosted by Go Golfing. Get to know your fellow travellers and we toast the first round leaders.

Meals: B,D – LE MERIDIEN

Day 3: Wednesday 09 November – DELHI

Discover Delhi, a city of sheer contrasts – from the action packed Old Delhi, the former capital of the Mughals to the spacious and planned streets of New Delhi, built as the imperial capital of India by the British.

The morning is devoted to exploring Old Delhi. You will see the Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India, and the stately India Gate, a soldier’s memorial. You’ll take a Rickshaw ride through the by-lanes of the old walled city taking in local sounds and exotic aromas as you make your way towards the largest wholesale market, the Chawri Bazaar & Spice Market. Then it is onto Paranthe Wali Gali – a street famous for its paranthas delicacies, ending in Dariba Kalan, also known as jewellers’ street. Red Fort, an imposing red sandstone structure, signals our departure from Old Delhi.

In the afternoon, you’ll discover New Delhi starting with the Humayun’s Tomb, the first garden-tomb concept built by Mughal dynasty which later became the inspiration for the Taj Mahal. Take a walk in the gardens of this grand monument, where ancient trees and broken ruins pose as lush adornments to the sandstone glow of the mausoleum. Visit Qutub Minar, one of the finest Islamic structures ever raised in India. Once the defining landmark of Delhi, it is still standing tall with its graceful lines and staggering height.

Evening at leisure.

Meals: B – LE MERIDIEN

Day 4: Thursday 10 November – DELHI

Today, after a leisurely morning, your second round of golf takes you to Classic Golf & Country Club, a Jack Nicklaus signature course. Jack set out to produce a course that requires all types of shotmaking, risk and reward holes and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards to catch errant shots. The course has an abundance of green cover & peacocks – the two of them combine for a magnificent sight with the gently undulating hills of the Aravalli range as a magnificent backdrop. Non-golfers will travel to golf today and enjoy a leisurely afternoon.

Tonight we serve up a treat with a Bollywood-style show at the Kingdom of Dreams and Culture Gully dinner.

Meals: B,D – LE MERIDIEN

Day 5: Friday 11 November – DELHI

Today is another highlight with both golfers and non-golfers making their way to Jaypee Greens Golf Resort. This sprawling, lush green course is India’s first 18 hole Championship course designed by Australian golfing icon Greg Norman. It is India’s longest course with 14 shimmering lakes and 88 snow-white bunkers. While the golfers play, the non-golfers will indulge in a luxurious spa treatment at the club’s multi-award winning Six Senses Spa.

In the evening, savour the Mughlai cuisine at a popular local restaurant.

Meals: B,D – LE MERIDIEN

Day 6: Saturday 12 November – DELHI >> AGRA

After breakfast, bid farewell to Delhi as you make your way by coach towards Agra, renowned as the city of the Taj Mahal – a monument of love. We stay at the ITC Mughal, a magnificent property spread across 35 acres of luxurious gardens and overlooking the Taj Mahal. Begin your exploration of this magnificent city with a visit of Agra Fort, one of the finest Mughal forts in India.

Lose yourself in the ethereal beauty of the Taj Mahal with dawn and dusk visits. In the right light, the Taj Mahal is magical, looming like a mirage, in the distance. It is pink at dawn and dusk, dazzling white at noon, pearly silver by moonlight. Poet Rabindranath Tagore described the Taj Mahal as ‘a teardrop on the cheek of eternity’, while its creator, Emperor Shah Jahan, said it made ‘the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes’.

The Taj was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. The palace’s grand human scale is captivating. It is almost impossible not to feel the presence of past emperors, princesses, valets and concubines that once roamed its courtyards.

Meals: B – ITC MUGHAL

Day 7: Sunday 13 November – AGRA >> SAWAI MADHOPUR

Complete your Taj Mahal experience with a dawn visit before we depart for Sawai Madhopur, gateway to Ranthambore, home to India’s finest tiger reserve. En route, you’ll visit the deserted red sandstone city of Fatehpur Sikri. It was the political capital of India’s Mughal Empire under Akbar’s reign in the 16th century and regarded as the crowning glory of his architectural legacy. We stop in Bharatpur at Laxmi Vilas Palace for lunch before we resume our journey towards Ranthambore. Our hotel, Vivanta by Taj, is a former royal hunting lodge. Tonight we enjoy a banquet at the hotel.

Meals: B,L,D – Vivanta by Taj

DAY 8: Monday 14 November – SAWAI MADHOPUR

Enjoy a morning and afternoon safari in search of the elusive Bengal Tiger. Ranthambore is renowned as the best place to see these majestic predators in the wild. It is also home to a variety of exotic animals such as the Sloth Bear, Nilgai, Wild Boar, Sambhar, Chital and the Leopard.

Meals: B,L,D – Vivanta by Taj (Sawai Madhopur)

DAY 9: Tuesday 15 November – SAWAI MADHOPUR >> JAIPUR

After breakfast we transfer by coach to Jaipur. It is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India’s most flamboyant state. Careering buses dodge dawdling camels while leisurely cycle-rickshaws frustrate swarms of motorbikes. In the midst of this mayhem, the splendours of Jaipur’s majestic past are islands of relative calm evoking a different pace and another world.

This afternoon, you are gifted a beautiful sari or turban – to be a lasting memento of your Indian sojourn. You’ll be taught the art of wearing a sari and tying a turban before you take part in a traditional Indian cooking class followed by dinner.

Meals: B,L,D – ITC – Rajputana

DAY 10: Wednesday 16 November – JAIPUR

Today, you play at the Rambagh Golf Club, one of the oldest and most prestigious golf clubs in India. A game of golf here will transport you into long gone days as you catch glimpses of the Rambagh Palace Hotel, The Moti Doongari and Nahargarh Forts as well as the Birla Planetarium. Non-golfers will be hunting bargains with a private escorted shopping tour of Jaipur.

After golf we make our way to Jantar Mantar, an observatory built for measuring the heavens. It resembles a collection of giant bizarre sculptures. We finish our travels at the impressive City Palace.

Tonight we dine at Diggi Palace, where organic produce grown on the hotel’s gardens and farm is used. The restaurant is set within a former splendid residence of the thakur (nobleman) of Diggi and surrounded by vast shaded lawns where peacocks roam freely.

Meals: B,DITC – Rajputana

DAY 11: Thursday 17 November – JAIPUR

This morning you have the option of a hot air balloon ride over the stunning Jaipur City (additional cost).

In the arid hill country surrounding the city we discover the fairytale grandeur of Amber Fort, Jaipur’s star attraction. Elephants are the transport of choice as we ride along the fort’s ramparts.

We then continue to Samode village for a jeep ride to visit a small village spectacularly set among rugged hills. We enjoy lunch at Samode Bagh and marvel at the block printed cloth and glass bangles hand made by the locals.

Evening at leisure.

Meals: B,L – ITC – Rajputana

DAY 12: Friday 18 November – JAIPUR >> MUMBAI >> PUNE

After breakfast, we transfer to Jaipur airport for our flight to Mumbai. On arrival, we travel to Pune, a thriving, vibrant metropolis. Pune is a centre of academia and business that epitomises ‘New India’ with its baffling mix of capitalism, spiritualism, ancient and modern. It’s also globally famous, or notorious, for an ashram, the Osho International Meditation Resort, founded by the late guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
Meals: B – JW Marriott

DAY 13: Saturday 19 November – PUNE

Today you play the no.1 golf course in India and the top 10 in Asia, the Oxford Golf & Country Club. This prestigious club affords members a private world of beauty, recreation and fun. The valley and mountains of the Sahayadri range provide this imaginative course design.

Non-golfers will enjoy a guided visit of Shaniwar Wada. The remains of this fortressed palace of the Peshwa rulers are located in the old part of the city. Next stop is Agha Khan Palace. Built in 1892 by Sultan Aga Khan III, this graceful building was where Mahatma Gandhi and other prominent nationalist leaders were interned by the British following Gandhi’s Quit India campaign in 1942.

Evening at leisure.

Meals: B – JW Marriott

DAY 14: Sunday 20 November – PUNE >> AAMBI VALLEY >> MUMBAI

Today, we travel to Mumbai via the Aamby Valley Golf Resort. Situated high above Mumbai at some 2700 feet above sea level, nestled in the Western Ghat Mountains, it has been ranked in India’s top 5 courses since 2005 and is a must-play. Immaculately maintained, the course is visually stimulating and a golfing pleasure. Non-golfers can relax and explore the resort at leisure.

After golf we continue on to Mumbai, where we will stay at the magnificent Taj Mahal Palace overlooking the Gateway of India.

Evening at leisure.

Meals: B – The Taj Mahal Palace

DAY 15: MONDAY 21 November – MUMBAI

We have a full day to explore Mumbai and all its charms. The heart of Mumbai not only includes some of the grandest colonial-era architecture but also offers unique bazaars, hidden temples, hipster enclaves and India’s premier restaurants. Our list of must see landmarks includes the Gateway of India, also fondly known as the ‘Queen’s Necklace’; Mani Bhavan, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed during his visits to Mumbai; and Victoria Terminus, a beautiful Edwardian building that houses the main railway station. We also visit a Dabbawala – a unique tiffin (meal) delivery service with a staff of 5000 and a ‘Dhobi Ghat’, an open laundry where Mumbai’s ‘dirties’ are scrubbed, bashed, dyed and hung out to dry. We finish our tour with lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon you can continue to explore the city or relax in our very own Taj Mahal.

Early in the evening, we start our food walk for an education on local food customs and sample traditional Indian staples, flavours and cooking techniques.

Meals: B,L,D – The Taj Mahal Palace

DAY 16: Tuesday 22 November – MUMBAI

Today we have managed to secure mid morning tee times at Mumbai’s most famous Bombay Presidency Golf Club. Located in the city of Mumbai, its layout is widely praised for its variety of par 4 holes with the 12th a clear standout.

While the golfers enjoy their last round of golf, the non-golfers will enjoy a market tour. Mumbai’s wide lanes and narrow alleyways are alive with activity. In front of colonial buildings, alongside temples, and everywhere in between, vendors shout from carts selling everything from colourful birds and flowers to traditional Indian clothes and food. We’ll guide you through the chaos and introduce you to Mumbai’s must-see markets and some off the beaten track gems.

Tonight we gather for our farewell dinner at the iconic Khyber restaurant for a celebration of our time in India. We toast our champions and reflect on a tour that indulged our senses and enriched our soul. Importantly we take home new friends.
