2010: My first visit to Zion Hills Golf County to conduct an Excellence Camp for the Indian Golf Union. Only the driving range was ready.


2013: The Player Development Program begins and an academy system of training starts gaining ground.



The 12,000 square foot putting green and the rest of the short game facilities prove that Zion Hills means business.

Being one of the few courses with top quality bent grass greens, keeping them in shape is usually the biggest challenge that golf courses face. Zion Hills has risen to this challenge and does a great job of it.

Even a small detail like the quality of range balls used is taken care of. There is never a compromise on the maintenance of the facility.

I believe that this is what is required to produce world-class players.


With our new residential capability I do believe that this sets us apart from other academies. This has opened doors to players who have moved from other cities to train and practice at our facility.

With long and short term stay options players can come in for various training programs and not have to worry about their living arrangements. There is no greater luxury for a budding golfer to be able to walk to the driving range every day.


George is the Managing Director of the Zion Hills project and an avid golfer himself. He takes pride in making sure that the experience of a golfer who comes to Zion Hills is a memorable one.


Arjun Lal, the Director of Operations, is a former student of mine and a former touring professional. With this background it is very easy to work with him as he knows and understands the needs of the serious golfer. He heads a very young and passionate team who ensure that the facility is always at its best.


Together as a team we have what I would call a winning attitude.



George, Arjun and myself share the belief that the Zion Hills golf academy will be an international training destination in the future. Our goal is to have a system of training and a quality facility that will not only produce many future champions, but also attract existing players to make this their training base.
