Originally called the Gauchar Golf Club, Royal Nepal Golf Club is the oldest course in the kingdom of Nepal and possibly one of the oldest golf clubs in the region. Established in 1917, the Club was given Royal patronage by His late Majesty King Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev in 1965. During its long history, many members of the Royal family and visiting foreign dignitaries have graced the club.
The club has a very challenging 9-hole golf course which organizes over 26 golf tournaments annually, including His Majesty’s Birthday Cup and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Birthday Cup and held the first ever Nepal Open Golf tournament for professionals of the region for 6 years. All the professionals described the course as “highly challenging but fair golf course with a fantastic view of the Himalayas”.
Located next to the international airport at a height of 4,265 ft. above sea level, it is only 10 minutes drive from the center of the city, and it enjoys a panoramic view of Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal and other majestic mountains of Nepal.
The club has recently built a large modern clubhouse with a grand view of the mountains and the course. It boasts of a very spacious restaurant and bar with wide selection of food and beverages at most reasonable prices.
The club is a social institution run by members. All of the members are from renowned businesses and social standings, including one of the Mt. Everest summiteers, Mr. Ang Norbu Sherpa, who ascended the highest peak in the world during the 50th anniversary in 2003. For golfers who are visiting Nepal, for business or pleasure, playing at Royal Nepal Golf Club is a must.
