A decade ago, golf in Nepal was more or less a past time. Now it has turned a bit more professional in that it draws big sponsors and serves a wide purpose. The major breakthrough came in1993 when Surya Tobacco Company started the yearly Surya Nepal Masters Open, the first internationally organised professional tournament with a hefty cash prize. Ever since the tournament was launched, which is now played at the most scenic and natural Gokarna Golf Course, it has been a big attraction for the professional and amateur golfers from many Asian countries and more from rest countries. Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) has also been promoting golf and is a co-promoter too many events including Surya Nepal Masters. There are seven golf courses in Nepal, namely, Royal Nepal Golf Club (RNGC), 9-hole, at Tribhuvan International Airport, Gokarna Golf Resort (18-hole) at Gokarna, Yeti Golf Club (9-hole) at Fulbari Resort in Pokhara, Nirvana Golf Club (9-hole) in Dharan, Himalaya Golf Club (9-hole) in Pokhara, Tribhuvan Army Officers golf Club (9-hole) in Nawalparasi. Almost all of these golf courses are centrally located and have fantastic fairways and well-managed with state-of-the-art facilities like bars, driving ranges, golf lessons and party venues. Throughout the years these golf courses host many events and tournaments with overwhelming participation of professional and amateur players including expatriates. And this number is increasing every year. Nirvana Golf Course Nirvana Golf Course in Nepal is one of the biggest and oldest golf courses in Nepal within an area of 69 hectares. It has an 18 Hole Golf course with 5990 yardages, 70 pars with one of the best facilities in Nepal capable of hosting major and International Golfing events.
