About this course
Pune‘s latest golf course this 18-hole, 7020 yard, Par 72 championship course, designed by Australia’s Pacific Coast Design, is part of an integrated township.
The Oxford Golf and Country Club (OGCC) won Asia’s ”Best Maintained Course in Asia Pacific 2012 as Second Runner Up and also won the “Best Course in India – First Runner Up Award 2012″. This is a honor that is a testament to the design & maintenance standards here.
The course is built on 136 acres of land that is Horseshoe shaped & surrounded on 3 sides by the Sahyadri hills that give the course a stunning aura especially when you drive down the hills with the course lying down below you.
Magnificent maintenance standards ensure that the greens & fairways are always in the best of shape. Sparkling bunkers with gleaming white sand twist & turn their way across fairways & alongside greens. Breeze is a big factor here & so are changes in elevation across the course. That coupled with the multitude of hazards & bunkers make this a challenging opportunity for most golfers. With some mature rough & hazards, it is a good idea for the first time golfer to carry a few extra balls – just in case.
The OGCC also has luxurious accommodation – Chalets with breathtaking Golf course views that allows for weekday & weekend getaways here with Golf & leisure activities included i. The course also has one of India’s finest training academies – with a 3 tier driving range. The academy comes with a wide range of training modules & with no access fee makes it very easily accessible.

The striking, fashionable and bold interiors are the concepts of Les Harbottle, the famous South African interior designer.
