The Kashmir Retreat had seen it all!  ‘Ready’ to ‘not ready’ and ‘ready again’!!  

As many as 74 golfers played whilst total registrations were 117 including non-playing spouses from 17 cities in India, 1 each from Bangladesh, Dubai and Nepal.   

It surely was an exhilarating experience to have played 3 rounds in Kashmir.  The first round was played at the Lidder Valley Golf Course followed by Kashmir Golf Club and Royal Springs Golf Course. The day’s sunset was with a gala dinner scheduled on the lush green lawns of the ‘Lalit’.  Not unexpected, the sudden storm and rain made us shift the venue to the iconic ‘Darbar Hall’. Evening was to celebrate the Retreat, its winners with prizes and cocktail, dinner and sufi music was lined up. The august presence of Sh. Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Hon.Lt Governor of UT & J&K, added to the grandeur of the event. 

Their happiness was so evident at the final morning breakfast venue where several members and spouses sang retro songs in chorus with Kashmiri Santoor promising to catch up with next big golf event at Hyderabad.
