The Royal Springs Golf Course is easily one of the most stunning & breathtaking golf courses you would play in India with the Zabarwan hills in the background & the Dal lake around the corner. 
 
The course is spread over 300 acres of rolling hills, native deciduous forest, lakes,wilderness with the occasional marsh. Don’t be surprised if you spot the rare Hangul lurking in the thickets. A wide variety of bird life can be spotted on the course including a large number of kites at the 9th hole & 18th hole as they feast on the fish that thrive in the water bodies adjoining these holes. The course was built out a forest & has huge changes in undulations & scenery making it a pleasure to play on.
 
The Royal Spring Golf course (RSGC) is located close to the Mughal garden, Chashma Shahi, at the foothills of Zabarvan hills & overlooks the tranquil Dal Lake. The designer of this beautiful course is the globally acclaimed Robert Trent Jones Jr. II. He has designed over 500 golf courses around the world including some of the longest courses in the USA. This golf course is one such course which is open to non-members also (not restricted to members only) and golf tournaments are conducted at regular intervals.
 
The course is called the ROYAL SPRINGS because they have 4 actual water springs in the vicinity. These springs were the source of soft sweet water, prized by the Mughal Emperor Jehangir.He built an exquisite walled garden – the Chashma Shahi. The legendary garden overlooks the Golf Course and contains 4 of the ROYAL springs !!
