The 110-acre Bombay Presidency Golf Club at Chembur is a green haven in an otherwise urban environment. Founded in 1927 the course was redesigned by Peter Thomson to international standards. Presidency’s fairways are narrow and tight, but its greens are undoubtedly the best in the country. The real test at Presidency, however, is the variable and shifting sea breeze, which could fox even the most experienced player. It is not a difficult course; it’s not too long, not too narrow and yet not an easy course to break par. The fifth hole is one of the most challenging on this course: a 480-yard, par five, a dog leg to the right, with a fairway trap strategically placed to catch the long hitter trying to cut the corner. The drive on this has to be placed carefully. If too long and pulled, it would end up in deep trouble. With a well-placed drive around the fairway bunker, the hole, in spite of the two overhanging trees on the right, is a comfortable par five. The 416 yard, par four 11th hole is also a test of precision golfing. The player has to steer his drive through trees overhanging on either side, a short distance from the tee. The fairly tight fairway has thick scrub and trees on the left, a water hazard and an out-of-bounds on the right with perhaps the trickiest and fastest green of this course. With the pin placed towards the left edge, the approach would roll off into the thick roughs, and not even a miracle would allow a par. Of the par threes, the 17th hole is the longest at 218 yards. The green is deceptive with deep bunkers on either side, and the rippled fairway can make a loose tee shot veer sharply. Par 70, 7,132 Yards.
