Golf Courses in Mumbai For A Hole-in-One Experience

This ancient game sees its encouraging rise in the present times as well. Also referred to as the "Rich man's game", golf usually is found in posh hubs all throughout the world and one such place is Mumbai. The reason why the game may be called so is due to its expensive character and laid back sportive style. Although most of the golf courses are restricted to club members, there are a few that invite the general public and tourists to have a golfing experience.  These golf clubs not only offer a good time for playing the sport and socialising with your golf pals or going solo, they also provide learning sessions that are open to both children and adults.

Here are the golf courses in Mumbai that are open to the general public and tourists:

1. Bombay Presidency Golf Club (BPGC)
