Thanks for advance
Most people donâ€™t consider Nepal as a golfing Nation. As a matter of fact Nepal has three golf courses. Nepal has a mostly balmy climate which makes golfing an enjoyable experience. Not only that, the scenic and rugged settings of this Himalayan country offers a spectacular back drop to your golfing game. Nepal runs a championship serious on its courses once a year. Any other time it is possible to play for pleasure on these courses. Nepalâ€™s golf courses vary from 9 to 18 holes. Being developed by world class course designers the courses are on par with the best in Asia. Not only are the courses scenic but they will challenge your golf game. So if you are a serious or recreational golfer why not take a golfing holiday with a difference.
