Accolade for Swan’s Indian Renovation

KGA - officially 'The Best in India'

Swan Golf Designs is celebrating after the Karnataka Golf Association’s Championship course, which was extensively renovated by the SGD team, was awarded as the Best Course in India.

The Asian Golf Monthly accolade was presented to the Club at the recent Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Bangkok. The awards are the region’s golf industry “Oscars” and were voted for in all corners of the globe.

Swan Golf Designs’ renovation of the course at KGA in Bangalore, Southern India, was undertaken over two phases, each lasting six months, and involved not only the redesign and rebuilding of all tees, greens, bunkers and fairways, but also the update of the irrigation and drainage systems.

The latter was of particular success, allowing the course to remain open every day since the project was completed, in spite of the heaviest rainfalls over the summer monsoon seasons.

“All at Swan Golf Designs are proud to have been involved in such an esteemed and prestigious project and look forward to the Practice’s other work in India reaching similar success,” said Howard Swan. “With the Indian economy continuing to forge ahead and the interest in the game of golf there growing at pace, Swan Golf Designs sees a productive future in the country.”
