The Bangalore golf club can boast of being one of the oldest Clubs in India and has a history to match it.
The golf course at the BGC, having dutifully gone through the four stages of evolution, is now into the future. Borrowing a phrase from literacy criticism, this can be called post-modernism.
It has indeed been a long road. Hark back to the time when this was a 9-hole course, with something akin to football field for a fairway and fine brown sand in place of greens.
Over the century, the 12-hole course was extended to an 18-hole one, then began a truly uphill task of turning the plot, bit by painful bit, into the game's most favoured colour of green. The greens were first to come, one by one. But the unprecedented thrust of the huge water recycling project was what made it possible for a dream to come true.
That is the dream of a completely redesigned course. While the water project took 3 years and 3 months from initiation, the redesigning of the course has taken 4 years and 6 months. That is the measure of magnitude of the job.Tough, and at times frustrating. In fact the Australian golf architect Phil Ryan, called in to do the job, came up with a concept of a 9-hole "executive course" with all appertunance! Something like back to the future.
The moot point was to accommodate an 18-hole course in a plot which is half the area needed for it, with the minimum of criss-crossing. And most importantly, without cutting a single tree. Phil Ryan finally came up with a "new plan" which gained universal acceptance. The new plan sets in a totally restructured and landscaped course, 9 holes virtually where they were, 4 holes modified extensively and 5 brand new ones.
