Golf to be included in Golden Chariot’s itinerary

Bangalore, Jul 23 (PTI) The Golden Chariot – the luxury train which takes passengers on a royal odyssey from the garden city to the heritage site of Hampi will now boast of an added attraction – golf.

The promoters hit upon this idea to cater to markets like Japan, which are opening up to luxury tourism ventures like the Golden Chariot. “Introducing golf will be an added incentive to travel to this part of the country and enjoy the sport which they are very passionate about,” Project Director Golden Chariot, Anand Menon told PTI.

Karnataka has quite a few number of golf courses to boast of. Right from Bangalore, Mysore, Chikmagalur and Belgaum, the state has a number of golf courses of international standards.

“By adding golf in the itinerary we are attempting to add to the very definition of luxury per se.
