Chandigarh Golf Club in India has appointed British architect David Hemstock to lead a major overhaul of its golf course.
Hemstock, who has extensive experience working in India, is in charge of a five year project which, according to the Times of India, is aimed at bringing Chandigarh up to international standards, and becoming one of the country’s top clubs. The renovation programme is budgeted at around Rs 1 crore (US$225,000) for each of the five years.
The Chandigarh course was originally laid out in 1962, and is the home club of leading Indian professional Jeev Milka Singh. Its 613 yard seventh hole is believed to be one of the longest in India.
