Gorkana Forest Resort

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1999

Gokarna Forest Resort is stunningly located at 4,550 feet above sea level, within 470 acres of the centuries old Gokarna Forest Reserve. This Stay&Play golf oasis boasts one of the first designs by Scotsman David McLay-Kidd. The resort prides itself on its natural features, not least the pristine forest surrounds, which had to remain untouched by the golf construction.

The layout is a haven of lush unyielding forests, winding streams, wandering hills and valleys opening to a holy river’s plain, all set against the backdrop of the majestic Himalayan mountain range. Golfers are typically accompanied by monkeys watching the game, and you may glimpse shy spotted deer peering from the trees.

Stay & Play at Gokarna Forest: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
