Vooty Golf County is a premier golf course situated in Vikarabad, near Hyderabad, India. It was established in 2017 and has received an overwhelmingly positive response from golfers who have played on the course.
Here are some of the design aspects of Vooty Golf County
- Holes 2 and 5 form Par 3 and stretch from 162-214 yards.
- Holes 1,4,6,8,9 form Par 4 and stretch from 300-475 yards.
- Holes 3 and 7 form Par 5 and stretch from 511-556 yards.
- The hole 2 and hole 5 on Par 3 play from the North East and South West of the golf course respectively
The greens on the golf course are made using USGA compliant materials and of ultra thin Bermuda Grass, and as a result, are soft. The greens have a variety of playing angles and can be approached from a variety of directions based on the shape of the green, hole location and the topography of the golf course. This gives a golfer a number of shot strategies to choose from.
Throughout the course, there are several greens with varying sizes, shapes and contours. And no two greens are alike. There are several of them:
- Tiered greens
- Roof Top greens
- Biarritz green
- Slopes Back to Front
- Slopes Front to Back
- Slopes Left to Right and Vice Versa
The golf course has a variety of hole lengths and 3 different teeing locations so that even amateur golfers can play.
The course is unique in the fact that it is 6500 yards as compared to most golf courses that span 7200 yards. This was done because an efficient golf course would cover less land, would have less water, lesser chemical composition and would thus be quicker to play golf.
Vooty Golf County has the distinction of having India’s only island Par 4 hole. Also, you have several birdie opportunities where you can strike a hole in a single shot in 5 par 4 holes, which are less than 350 yards.
The course is both challenging and tempting. Challenging in the fact that it has the presence of several hazards like it has 47 sandy bunkers and 13 water bodies, for the absence of a grassy surface on bunkers and water bodies make it extremely difficult to swing the ball.
It is tempting because the fairways do not have any flat surfaces and that in turn, would prevent the ball from getting sliced(rapid curve movement during flight, thus changing the direction of the shot). Another reason would be that the average fairway width is less than 35 yards which allows for an easy golfing experience and a bigger probability for the ball to end in the golf hole.
The course is designed by experts in golf course design like Pacific Coast Design from Australia, state-of-the-art water and irrigation systems provided by TORO, the landscaping by Naveen Architects and the project management of the course was overseen by Global Golf India.
Other amazing aspects of the course is that it gives you the opportunity to buy real estate overlooking the golf club, with its several residential plots. Vooty Golf County is less than an hour from Hyderabad, and the place is amidst scenic beauty. It is located on the foothills of Ananthagiri Hills and is surrounded by greenery. The temperature is 6 degrees celsius lesser than Hyderabad and is bereft of pollution.
And the best part, you can play here any time of the year!
