Looking for a stress-free golfing holiday where you can spend as much time on the course as you like, while your family is occupied? Here are our top picks:

1. ROYAL SPRINGS GOLF COURSE, SRINAGAR: 

Royal Springs is an 18-hole championship golf course with panoramic views of Dal Lake and the fir-covered peaks of the Zabarwan Hills-the view of the lake from the tee box of the fifth hole will put any golfer's attention to the test.

WHERE TO STAY

Vivanta Dal View, Srinagar and The LaLiT Grand Palace Srinagar are less than a 10-minute drive from the golf course.

2. AGRA GOLF CLUB :

Enjoy the sport you love in the home of the monument of love. The Agra Golf Club offers a glimpse of the Taj Mahal at various points on its nine-hole course. It can also be played with a separate set of tees to make for an 18-hole game.

WHERE TO STAY

Most nearby hotels, including The Oberoi Amarvilas and ITC Mughal, can organise a morning round of the courses.

3. THE KODAIKANAL GOLF CLUB, TAMIL NADU

Each hole at this 18-hole picturesque clifftop course has a unique character to test your skills (the strong breeze can turn a par-three hole from an easy nine iron to a hard four). It will also test your physical endurance, as you'll have to walk up steep slopes.

WHERE TO STAY

Though there are several good-value hotels in Kodaikanal, the seven-tent The Fern Creek resort is a great option.

4. JAYPEE GREENS GOLF & SPA RESORT, GREATER NOIDA 

For New Delhi's golfers, this Greater NOIDA resort, along with its Greg Norman-designed course, is both a weekend getaway and a place to mix business with leisure.

WHERE TO STAY

The Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort has 170 well furnished rooms and suites with all the mod-cons.

5. ANANDA IN THE HIMALAYAS, UTTARAKHAND

This wellness retreat's six-hole golf course is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, just an hour's drive from Rishikesh and Haridwar. The par-three course, laid out between forest land and open valley space, promises to be a challenge for even seasoned golfers.

WHERE TO STAY 

The course is open only to those staying at Ananda in the Himalayas.

6. AAMBY VALLEY CITY, MAHARASHTRA

The 7,087-yard course is set in the Sahyadri hills of Maharashtra. Part of Aamby Valley City, this day-and-night championship fairway's front nine courses have natural and man-made hazards like water bodies and sandpits.

WHERE TO STAY

Aamby Valley City offers a range of accommodations, from chalets inspired by Switzerland to Spanish-style cottages.

7. THE ROYAL CALCUTTA GOLF CLUB, KOLKATA

Opened in 1829, this is said to be the world's oldest course outside of the British Isles. Designed in a manner similar to Scotland's famous St Andrew's fairway, its spectacularly preserved par-72, 18-hole course is both inviting and challenging.

WHERE TO STAY

The Park, Kolkata, has a number of great dining and nightlife options. The Oberoi Grand, Kolkata, takes you back to the times of the Raj era.

8. OXFORD GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB, PUNE

The 18-hole horseshoe-shaped course is ideal for seasoned golfers. Several vantage point tee boxes provide you with great views of the silver sand bunkers as you drive your ball down the hills, and over 40 practice bays give it its world-class appeal.

WHERE TO STAY

Where to stay: The course is part of an 1,100-acre township, which will house villas, apartments, a hotel and a country club (with a pool and crèche for kids).

9. PRESTIGE GOLFSHIRE CLUB, BENGALURU

Set at the foot of the Nandi Hills on the edge of Lake Karehalli, the 250-acre course features undulating greens, several of which are two-tiered and deep, with shapely bunkers to challenge any avid golfer.

WHERE TO STAY 

The course is part of a part-residential, part-commercial luxury development with its own villas (available for rent), spa, swimming pool, squash courts, restaurants, and crèche, making it ideal for a family day out.

10. KENSVILLE GOLF LIVING, AHMEDABAD

Designed by golfing great Jeev Milkha Singh, Kensville's 18-hole PGA-standard course is a verdant oasis just outside Gujarat's bustling commercial capital.

WHERE TO STAY 

The course has Club Kensville, a 55-room luxury hotel, attached to it, but if you would rather stay in the city, 55km away, hotels like Hyatt Regency Ahmedabad and DoubleTree by Hilton Ahmedabad are great options.
