I think I should swap locations with you to explore the CM resorts in North .
Good idea laluks. Also lets do a vacation together, it will be nice. Places like Binsar will be awesome.

The perfect way is to hit is low and let it bounce up the slope and hope for the best.

And the eighteenth is a devil. Hit from the low spot somewhere in the middle of the picture up the slope to a small landing green almost at the edge of cameraman's feet. If you land on the green perfect. Lower than that the ball will almost roll back to the tee and if hit higher it will go out of bounds beyond the green in to club house area.

Thanks for rekindling the memories.
Sudev , this is exactly we were discussing while have tea at their restaurant.

, but lot of tyre marks on the curves. A clear sign people over speeding and under estimating the curve angle. Even i enjoyed the drive on my safari was missing my Skoda VRs.

That's true. I guess lack of driving manners and less or no training for high speed cornering results in late braking right in the middle of a bend/curve. Hence the skid marks.

Thankfully those countless of watching f1 and playing Need for Speed taught me the golden rule of braking before and powering out of a curve.

That sounds like a plan. We'll fly down to Delhi and probably we can drive together. Let me check how are we placed this year

Yes doable. You can do rafting and hot water spring bath too.
Start early. You will have ample time.
