Bhutan Golf Tour

Tour Summary

Bhutan Golf Tour is Unique and Exclusive event managed only by Bhutan Majestic Travel and no other tour company. The primary reason being that we have a prestigious golf course but not known to the golf enthusiast around the globe and we want to invite and let the new hand give a try and feel the difference.

We have so many national tournaments dedicated to our Monarchs and its felt that we only have National players participating and no new faces to be seen. Golf is a great game with big respect and so is Bhutan, exotic destination, so why don’t we bring golfers from other countries and let them enjoy the Himalayan Kingdom’s Fresh Air and experience Happiness.

Our Company Founder Mr. Namgay Dorji is a great Golf enthusiast and his presence is strongly felt at the Club. Sign up today for an upcoming tournament, feel and make your difference felt both by yourself and the locals like saying goes “Leave Nothing but Footprints – Take Nothing but Memories”. You can catch Druk Air flight from Bangkok, Kathmandu, New Delhi, Kolkata, Dhaka and Singapore.

The Royal Thimphu Golf Club is the only golf course in Bhutan that is open to the public. This delightful nine-hole course is beautifully situated above Thimphu Tashicho Dzong built as Fortress in 17th Century and now functions as Summer Capital for the Central Monastic Body headed by the Chief Abbot of Bhutan, The Je Khenpo, few other Government Ministries and most importantly The Throne Room of His Majesty The King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.

This is a 9 hole, Par 35 course and can be played as a18 hole, 5851 yard, Par 70 course from 2 different sets of tees. It is believed to be the highest golf course in the world, at over 7700 feet above sea level. Bhutan Golf Tour

It’s not cheap, but how often do you get to tee off in sight of a Bhutanese Dzong and have to dodge chorten hazards? Should you be able to pay your way into these exclusive playing grounds, you’re in for quite an experience. The course itself is a 9-hole, Par 35 affair with hardpan fairways and ponds that look like sunken bathtubs. In addition to the bunkers and hazards, you’ll have to contend with the uniquely Bhutanese chortens, small shrines where people leave precious stones for the gods. Bhutan Golf Tour

Cows and stray dogs wander around the green, somehow managing to avoid being hit by stray drivers. Now there’s a sight that’ll add to the Gross National Happiness.

Schoolboy caddies are available for around US$10. You don’t need to make an appointment to play, but you may have to wait to tee off on weekends. The new clubhouse canteen has decent food and fine views of the greens.
