Management company Troon Golf is taking charge of the new Prestige Golfshire development in Bangalore, India.

Designed by Bob Hunt of UK-based firm PGA Design Consulting, the Prestige course has been in gestation for some years. The estate is planned to be Bangalore’s first true five star golf and leisure estate. It will include a Marriott hotel.

“Along with the country’s booming growth, the emergence of professional Indian golfers on the international stage is a powerful influence creating increased demand for world-class golf in India,” said Troon’s Bruce Glasco. “The Prestige Group has taken a strategic approach to respond to these demands by developing the region’s leading golf and leisure estate.”

“We are delighted to welcome Troon Golf’s expertise to The Prestige Golfshire project in India,” said Irfan Razack of Prestige Group. “The respected team of committed experts will be a key asset in creating a benchmark leisure estate for not only Bangalore but India as a whole. Troon Golf will be instrumental in setting international quality standards with Prestige Golfshire, which remains our constant endeavour.”
