Lets decide all these meets on 10th July meet at Hampshire Plaza.
Just in case I am not able to make it to Hampshire Plaza meet, here is the info about Bolarum Army Golf course - you can just walk in and pay up the fee applicable to non-members (Rs. 150 per outing). Golf kits are available for hire (Rs. 50 per outing), but I guess there are only 7-8 kits for hire. The golf course is somewhat crowded on weekends. All regulars start at 6 AM and finish 10.30 AM or so. Hence we can start at 10.00/10.30 AM on a Saturday or Sunday to avoid the rush. We can play up to 1 PM (and finish 6-8 holes) and can then head for the watering hole

@Nag, that's awesome info. So anybody can walk in and play this sport?. If yes, then we should plan a golf meet on a saturday this very month.

Btw, adding your name for the July 10th dinner meet.

Dinner Meet Date: July 10, 2009
Venue : Hampshire Plaza or something similar
Time: 7:00pm
What's in it? : Lots of fun, unlimited beverages and unlimited snacks and food for a fixed price

Venue depends on who can accomodate us for the longest time with a great deal on offer. I am inclined towards Hamshire as i got an SMS recently from their cute hostess with her new mobile number

Confirmed List:
1. Hillram
2. B.Ravveendrra
3. Mobike008
4. Downsouth
5. Discobiscuit
6. Straightdrive
7. Pulsar56
8. Rajesh Rawal
9. Himanshugoswami
10. Suren181+1
11. Anurag_p80
12. Abysnthguzzler
13. Nagvasireddy

Yes, one is allowed to walk in, pay up and play. But, a beginer gets no where by stepping on the course straight away. At the most you end up damaging the putting greens or you will be holding up the group waiting to take position after you finish with that hole. Either way it will be very embarassing.

So, as far as taking to golf is concerned, one should hone his skills in the practice area and the driving range before stepping on the course. As far as TBHP golf meet is concerned, we can start off with a meet at the driving range. It will still be a lot of fun.

Another place where non-golfers can enjoy golfing could be "Songs of Earth" resort (:: Songs Of Earth Resorts : Nature Resort in Hyderabad, Group Leisure in Hyderabad, Group Holiday in Hyderabad, Marriage accommodation in Hyderabad, Training facilities in Hyderabad, resort in hyderabad, adventure sports in hyderabad, golf training i). They have 6 holes to play and there would be no disturbance to golfers.

The Golfing meet can be turned into a full day meet with family as there are other things to do at this particular resort.

Which Sunday is the drive on? I think 12th is too early, 19 is the HI Auto show, that leaves out 26th. So Hydeez - is that date OK? Also any alternate venues to Vikarabad?

Cheers,

How bout this Sunday ? A drive of a different kind - Tour of Hyderabad City and its unseen Treasures.

Slightly last minute , but blame Nazim for that lol( there's an auto strike this Sunday and the roads in old city would be accessible like never before).

Count me in (only if the Auto strike is on). A tour of the heritage sites and sights in Old city would be amazing. We could top it off with visits to Madina and Shehran for some great food or we could hunt out that place for amazing biryani mentioned by Fazal saab.

Cheers,

Brilliant , Ive never heard of the 1st 2 and that makes this drive more interesting.
  1. California Hangers
  2. Monsieur Raymond's Tomb
  3. Falak Numa Palace
  4. Chowmohalla Palace
  5. Chouk - for the birds and antiques
  6. Someone once mentioned about a street lined with bike shops and all you see is scores of old/new bikes all along ......... some beautiful and some needing attention.
I'll leave it to Avi aka our very own Wikipedia to plan the route around hyderabad so that we refill ourselves at a typical Hyderabadi den for lunch, and move on to the sights that are wonderful at dawn.

LOL, who would have thought that an auto strike would throw up such interesting possibilities. I am most definitely in - even if it is just 2 or 3 of us.

This tour should be an eye-opener letting us know a little more about the city we live in. The charminar, Salar Jung museum, tank bund and Birla Mandir are so passe. Some of the Hyderabadi buildings are truly impressive and the grandeur is something to be seen to be believed and will rival all but the most opulent of palaces in the world.

Will someone please tell me a little about the California Hangers/Hangars. I have never heard about them.

Confirmed list:

1. Pulsar56
2. Absynthguzzler
3. Ravveendrra
4. Hillram
5. Rajesh Rawal
6. Mobike008
7. Kkr2kr

I hope Fazal saab is reading this and is joining us - he is the best guide I can think of. It would truly be an education to have you with us to guide us through a Hyderabad that remains largely unseen and unknown.

Cheers,

I posted about the strike and slept early thinking that I'd go for walking/jogging in the morning (which did not happen by the way!) and we already have a meet planned!

That's the spirit and this is how the thread was supposed to be! LOL.

But, isn't 9th on Thursday? Or am I missing something here?

That sir, is but a minor detail.

Now that we are on a roll, let the auto guys run for cover on Sunday!
