The Falcon Greens: A Feast for the Palate and the Eyes!

The Falcon Greens restaurant is arguably our best kept secret – the menu is lovingly crafted by our chefs and the fare is generally judged as mouth-watering by diners! The view of course is nothing short of spectacular: the rolling professionally landscaped golf course, the lush greenery all round and the imposing Nandi Hills in the distance, all combine to create a picturesque setting for a quick snack or a leisurely meal.

The Prestige Masters is approaching its finale in November, and the Falcon Greens team has played its part in the event. Participants have been treated to a delicious brunch at the restaurant through every monthly round since May 2018. A themed spread of delicious dishes has been laid out for each edition –

European Cuisine in May
Pan-Asian for June
an Indian theme in July
Cuisines from Arabia in August
Fusion for September

Participants in the Prestige Masters Series could be forgiven for being distracted from the golf competition, given how tempting the spread has been all season long. Discerning gourmets picked out the Cold Pizza and Chicken Shish Taouk as worthy of special mention.

If you are wondering what we have in store for the October leg and the November finals, considers these themes as teasers – State on a Plate for October and Bollywood Night the next month. The only titbit Hemanth Badola, our F&B Manager, is willing to reveal is that the highlight during the Prestige Masters finale in November will be the Dumba Biriyani. If the mention of regions like the Awadh and the North-Western Frontier is enough to get your taste-buds going, the Dumba Biriyani is a must-try!

Hemanth regards the Norwegian Salmon Steak as the signature dish of the Falcon Greens. Do you plan on an early morning trip to the Nandi Hills summit? What better way to complement that view than to have brunch at our Restaurant before returning to the city? You can’t think of a more serene venue than the Falcon Greens if you and your loved ones are planning to spend hours over a meal and scintillating conversation.

The Louis Philippe Cup 2018: Proud to host the ADT and PGTI Event!

The inaugural Louis Philippe Cup 2018 played out on a pristine Golfshire course, and was a thrilling success, judging by player reactions and the enthusiastic crowds. A USD 75000 Asian Development Tour and Professional Golf Tour of India co-sanctioned event, superb cards on the last two days after a quiet start saw Rahil Gangjee win by 3 strokes.

Rahil Gangjee with the TrophyThe final day was perfectly set up, with just 6 strokes separating the top 10 Golfers. As it turned out, consistency was rewarded handsomely: Gangjee was the only Golfer with sub-par rounds on all four days. Starting with rounds of 1-under each on Day 1 and 2, he returned a card of 2-under and capped off the tournament with a course record-equalling round of 7-under on Days 3 and 4.

It was exciting to watch Gangjee take command: who can forget his memorable win at the 2004 Volkswagen Masters in China, when he beat a star-studded field that included Nick Faldo, Ian Woosnam and Phillip Price? He notched up his 3rd win on the Professional Golf Tour of India (PGTI) circuit, and this was his 2nd Asian Tour title of 2018, having already won the Panasonic Open in Japan.

Rashid Khan and Udayan Mane led at the start of the final day’s play, but ran into trouble on the back nine, carding 3 bogeys each on their way back to the clubhouse. Om Prakash Chouhan had 3 steady rounds, but a 4-Over on Day 3 meant that he had to settle for a joint second with Rashid. Marcus Both, one of the pre-tournament favourites, and Miguel Carballo, who along with Udayan set the course record on Day 1, struggled with consistency. Marcus was finally joint fourth with Udayan.

Aadil Bedi, the only amateur to make the cut, had a great tournament and came in joint 14th at 2-under. Bedi and Harimohan Singh are in the Asian Games squad, and the tournament proved to be ideal in preparing. Both had praise for the Prestige Golfshire course, considering it world-class in its layout, fairways and greens.

In other highlights, local lad Khalin Joshi had a great tournament too, ending up 5th with a 6-under. Tommy Mansuwan of Thailand scored a Hole-In-One on the second hole on Day 2.

The Golfers had to contend with challenging weather conditions – persistent wind and drizzles meant that there were only 19 sub-par scores through the tournament. Fifty one players had made the cut on Day 2, with the mark at 2-over.

Here are a few videos of action from the tournament:

The Prestige Masters Series: Looking Back and Ahead

The Prestige Masters Series 2018 is half way through the qualifiers, with 3 highly enjoyable rounds completed and another 3 to come before the Series Finals in November.

The Prestige Masters Series 2018 – Finalists from the 3 Rounds

We have identified 30 finalists from the three rounds played so far. They will be joined by another 30 over the next three months, and the field will be set for the grand finale to be played in November.

The pre-monsoon showers and the early onset of the monsoons brought with them heavy winds – posing a formidable challenge to the competitors. The Golfers who participated have also enjoyed the testing pin positions we used across the rounds.

The tournament, conceived in 2015 as an effort to encourage competitive amateur golf in the region, has now become a fixture in the Indian golfing calendar, attracting participation from across the country and overseas too.

The winners of previous editions are Sonam Chugh,  Sumeru Bahuguna and Naveen Wahi.  Sonam had also won the World Corporate Golf Challenge in 2015, and turned Pro shortly after the Prestige Masters Series win.

There is of course the coveted, custom-designed series trophy to aspire to. The winner and runner- up of each qualifying round also receive trophies and for those who missed out on the top two spots, there are vouchers and prizes in form of lucky draw prizes. However, we believe that the main attraction for golfers from all over is the sheer joy of pitting their skills against other amateurs or professionals on a challenging and well-laid out course setup that ensure only the best on the day can come out with a good score.

The Prestige Masters Series has other elements to enhance the user experience – operations are entirely online, from registration to live updation of scores. Every round features a theme-based buffet for participants and the prizes include one for the best-dressed golfer of the day!

We launched the Prestige Golfshire Club Mobile App during the third round, allowing participants to register for tournaments from the Mobile and score the rounds while playing. The Live Leaderboard in the App lets participants as well as followers to track the scoring in real-time. If you would like to download the App for yourself, do visit the appropriate link amongst these two –

Hello there –

Have you ever thought about how lovely it would be to run around the golf course? Well, we have and we are very excited to be organising our first charitable fun run this coming Sunday 13 March in support of the Manasa Orphanage.

Here’s a little bit about our cause…Prestige Golfshire has been associated with the Manasa Orphanage in Chikballapur since 2014, an organization that works to provide education and shelter for underprivileged children. Following the event, the team will personally deliver proceeds to the orphanage. We are also proud to say Dr. Madhukar from the organization will be attending on the day. 

The run itself will be just over 2 miles long and will go through our picturesque front nine with amazing views of Nandi Hills. The starting point will be at our luxury guest villas before going onto the second hole tee box and through to the ninth hole running back into the clubhouse. For those of you who know our course, you will know that there are few places in Bangalore more refreshing first thing in the morning – definitely worth getting out of bed for!

Our team has even been warming up this week and getting some practice in, here’s a preview of what you can expect on Sunday.
