Chandigarh Golf Club

The prestigious Chandigarh Golf Club is a major hub of Indian golf. The club is home to several top flight golfers; Jeev Singh, winner of 20 tournaments, 4 of which were on the European Tour; and his father the legendary Flying Sikh, Milkha Singh, gold medal-winning sprinter and also a golfer; as well as European Tour player Shubankhar Sharma.

The company have completed a thorough analysis and assessment of the golf course on behalf of the Club, to help define improvements to bunkering, tee positions and turf conditioning, with options for adjusting the layout, primarily to try to avoid the crossing holes that exist at the end of the front-nine.

A very heavily used course, there are upwards of 100,000 rounds per year played on it, making it a very difficult course to manage from an agronomic point of view.

The Hemstock Design team also helped technically, introducing¬†Ryegrass overseeding for better winter conditions, and methods for improving rooting depth and grass vigour. The 18th hole has already been adjusted by the Club’s own staff, with a rolling programme of amendments planned over the coming years.
