• Imagine a golf lover or enthusiast living in the midst of a world class golf course, in signature Jack Nicklaus style, right here in Punjab’s richie rich town, Ludhiana. Most would say it is unbelievable, but The Imperial Golf Estate at Mullanpur Dakha, near Ludhiana, has made it possible.

The beautifully laid out 9-hole championship golf course, conceptualised by world renowned Nicklaus Design, and spread over 70 acres, is part of the first phase of the 300-acre gated golfing township. The golf course is planned to be expanded to 18-hole under the second phase of the project. This is only the fourth signature Jack Nicklaus golf course in the country after Gurgaon, Ahmedabad and Bangalore. Jack William Nicklaus, a retired American professional golfer, is widely regarding as the greatest golfer of all times.
