Jaypee Greens Golf Resort
|State :||Uttar Pradesh|
|City :||Greater NOIDA|
Part of a 430 acre plus community the Jaypee Greens course is a stunning course & a must play one at that. Operational since June 2000, the Jaypee Greens golf course is a Greg Norman designed layout. The visually striking bunkers are reminiscent of the classic Melbourne sandbelt courses. The course landscaping includes open & closed woodlands, shrub lands, wetlands & wild grass areas.
The course has 88 bunkers, water in plenty & with strong winds can be a handful. With a large member community, the course has grown in stature over the years & has staged quite a few tournaments on both the Amateur & Professional circuit.
The course is part of a larger complex that includes exquisite villas, condominiums, a 5 star hotel & spa, schools & other recreational amenities. Located 1 hour away from New Delhi it is easily accessible by the Noida expressway. The course is currently the 2nd longest in the country & is tough to play given the strong wind conditions that can turn the 462 yard par 4, 7th hole for example into a virtual 500 yard hole.
The Jaypee greens complex is soon adding a 9 hole executive course. It has a full fledged clubhouse with world class amenities, a well stocked pro shop & a wonderful driving range /practice area.
Built on what was previously a flat featureless site, the design of the course involved the creation of several lakes. The earth from these lakes has been used to generate a dynamic, soft and undulating landform suitable for the laying out of 18 very exciting and challenging holes.
From championship tee, the golf course Greater Noida is strong and one of the longest in the world with a length of 7347 yards. Its gently rolling fairways are grassed using an imported Bermuda grass called Evergreen. This grass has been selected for its exceptional performance and superior playing surface. The bunkering style at Jaypee Green sets it apart from other courses in India. The bunkers are reminiscent of classic Melbourne sand belt courses including the world famous Royal Melbourne and Kingston health layouts.
