Golf destination


Kashmir is fast emerging as a golf destination and in this direction J&K administration is doing its efforts to bring more golfers here.

The proposal to hold a G-20 summit meeting in Kashmir and Ladakh has created a flutter and has shown the aims of the government to introduce Kashmir at the international level.

The proposal is to hold preparatory meetings for the G-20 summit in 2023 in Jammu and Kashmir. The J&K administration has already constituted a 5-member committee of senior bureaucrats to coordinate the G-20 summit meetings to be held in Kashmir valley.

This would be one of the major international events to be held in Kashmir and will bring a fresh focus on its beauty and tourism potential.

The J&K Tourism Department is hosting a golf tournament in Srinagar which starts from 5 July. As many as 88 reputed golfers, many of them from the southern states, are part of this tournament in Srinagar.

If such tournaments were held in future also the golf destination of Kashmir will prove to be a cheap destination for them. At rest of the places playing golf is much costlier than they have to spend in this game in Kashmir valley.

One of the oldest golf clubs in India, the Addicts Golfing Society, is holding this tournament along with the J&K government. Kashmir already has three international standard golf courses in Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Srinagar.
