green is undoubtedly the best in the country. The real test at Presidency, however, is the variable and shifting sea breeze, which could fox even the most experienced player.

The greens are lush and well maintained and also strategically located, mostly along the track. The first hole on this course is an easy looking par at 415 yards. It, however, takes a calculated and well lofted drive to avoid the bunkers placed on the fairway, 130 yards from the tee. The second hole is an easy par three at 170 yards, with a tricky green at a gradient of almost 30
degrees.A city tour in the afternoon takes you to the National Art Gallery and Museum, the Cathedral of San Thome and St. Mary’s Church, the oldest Anglican Church in India.In the evening, enjoy a drink at Fort St. George bar, a contemporary bar that serves a variety of cocktails and liqueurs.

The Royal Calcutta Golf club, the oldest golf club in India and the first outside Britain will host you this morning. The Royal’s conspicuous features are its strategically located water tanks and natural water hazards. The most significant are the two large tanks across the tenth fairway, a 457 yards, par four hole. From the tee, the tiger line is over the first hand and must carry all of 230 yards.The safer route to the right leaves a very long second tank, a good 100 yards wide, to a small undulating green, wickedly trapped all around.
Greens at the Royal are small by modern standards, but undulations make them tricky and there is little nap. From the tee, the course looks deceptively easy but its strength lies in its par fours and to score, requires good long and medium irons.
Afternoon sightseeing tour of the City, visiting the Jain Temple, Zoological Gardens, Victoria Memorial, drive past Howrah Bridge,Dalhousie square, Fort Williams, Secretariat buildings and Old Court House Street.
