In recent years Bangalore has become home to many major players within the IT Industry and now many multi-national companies have setup regional or national offices in India’s Garden City. With so many worldwide personnel in town, the need to accommodate their leisure time has become essential.

Eagleton, also known as The Golf Village, has been constructed with this in mind. The standard both on and off the course is high and goes a long way to ensure visitors receive the standard they are used to. As well as appealing to the travelling community, there are plans to stimulate growth amongst the local golfers and also promote golf tourism in South India. This has been enhanced further as the Ladies European Tour held their first Indian event at Eagleton in December 2007 with the Emaar–MGF Ladies Masters, also returning in 2008.

Eagleton is generally friendly from the tee with wide fairways and not too punishing rough. The greens hold many subtle breaks, which will catch out even the very best short game. The par 72 layout has been built around many natural contours – and the Banyan tree is evident in several places around the course, noticeably at the par three 5th where a specimen tree stands proud beside a tranquil lake. During construction in 1998, ecological considerations were high and over 20,000 new trees were planted to complement the original jungle trees.

The 7th hole is a memorable par four and looking beyond the fairway you see a 22-metre high statue of Aditya, the sun god. The towering figure from Hindu mythology faces the rising sun and then, later in the day, creates a wonderful silhouette at sunset over the course.

The par five 13th is a great driving hole, which comes after a well-deserved stop at the onsite café – the drive must dissect water to find the fairway.

Eagleton has already developed a European country club atmosphere and with quality villa and town house accommodation springing up, Eagleton’s success is already evident.

Whilst on business in Bangalore recently I took the opportunity to visit the Eagleton resort. The course itself is good and very good in places; only last month the course hosted the Ladies European Tour; Laura Davies et al. Most of the par 4's and 5's have generous fairways so that suited me fine but the greens are the main problem. All with deft undulations that really make putting a challenge. There are parts of the course that reminded me of Spain and Portugal and for a country that is on the up in the golfing world, there is nothing wrong with that. There are many water featured holes especially the par3's but my favorite hole came after a welcome stop at the on-course cafeteria; the par-5 13th, with water in play both left and right off of tee - very nervous shot indeed. My overall feeling that this is a course that will be very popular with business visitors to Bangalore city and I would recommend the course to all golfers and the prices are so low compared to elsewhere.
