Jaypee Greens Golf Club – India’s Longest Golf Course
Jaypee Greens Golf Club, a Greg Norman signature design, ranks as one of India’s top 5 courses. Only one hour from New Dehli, the course is laid out on a 430-acre property that features a residential complex, a 5-star hotel and spa, school and other recreational facilities.
STORY BEHIND JAYPEE GREENS
Opened in 2000, Jaypee Greens was Greg Norman’s first signature design in India. He has drawn inspiration from the bunkers found on many of Melbourne’s sandbelt courses, copying them in number and style.
In 2013, it hosted the, now discontinued, Avantha Masters. The tournament was tri-sanctioned by the European Tour, Asian Tour and Professional Golf Tour of India.
Jaypee Greens has been awarded the Best Tourism Friendly Golf Course by the Government of India three times.
JAYPEE GREENS GOLF COURSE
The course is a monster measuring 6,718 metres and is set on a rather flat site. During the construction, Norman excavated several lakes to provide soil to contour the fairways and make the course more interesting for golfers.
The fairways are laid out with Bermuda Evergreen grass presenting unrivalled performance and superior playing conditions. It also gives the course a natural feel of being a private oasis that contrasts the landscape outside the property.
The bunkers are reminiscent of the famous sandbelt courses in Melbourne, such as Royal Melbourne & Kingston Heath. There are 88 beautifully-white bunkers strategically placed throughout the layout to add to the challenge.
The short 372m long par-4 4th hole is a daunting test for any level of golfer. It is a risk and reward hole – a bold drive followed by an accurate approach to the flag could have you at the hole in 2. The catch is both shots will be played over water. All we can say is good luck!
