CIAL Golf & Country Club makes Cochin an international golf attraction 

Golf was introduced in Cochin as early as 1922. The three main golf courses are the Cochin Golf 

Club, The Naval Golf Club and the CIAL Golf & Country Club. Being the trade and business hub of Kerala, the interest in golf has grown over the years. More and more locals are taking to the sport seriously and it has grown in importance as a serious pastime. 

The CIAL Golf and Country Club (CGCC) at Cochin commenced operations in August 2010 with 9 Holes, driving range, practice green, Croquet, Lawn Bowls and a swimming pool. An all-weather championship 18 hole course playing 7400 yards, CGCC is designed to give an enjoyable golfing experience to beginners, regulars and champions.

Golf’s 2020 Vision: The HSBC Report

The trends which will shape the future of golf are the same trends that are shaping the future of the planet: the shift towards Asia, the increasing feminisation of the public world, urbanisation, the spread of digital technology, and resource and sustainability pressures. What is striking is the way in which golf—one of the world’s oldest sports—is adapting to these new challenges.

The professional game is already dominated by younger, fitter players. A boom in the number of children playing the sport in China and India means that the next generation will increasingly be from Asia: players like Shanshan Feng and Andy Zhang are a sign of things to come. One reason for the game’s popularity in Asia is that Asian consumers are turning to leisure activities as they get richer; in China alone the number of golf courses has tripled in less than a decade. At the same time, enthusiasm for golf is high in China and India (higher than in core golf markets such as the US and the UK), which also suggests that golf’s growth there will be sustained.

Golf got its name because all of the other four letter words were taken./ Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it cannot count, criticize or laugh.

Golf Tip
Part I: Before You Swing
Lesson #8: The Root Of Many Evils

Invariably, when I find myself hitting a lot of bad shots, the root cause is ball position. Let's say I've had a day when I've pushed a lot of shots to the right. Usually, that means I've let the ball slip too far back in my stance, with the result that my hips and shoulders have rotated a few degrees closed at address. This causes me to hit into the ball slightly more from the inside than usual, resulting in shots that launch to the right of my target.

After a day like that, the first item on my agenda on the practice tee will be to check my ball position. I'll begin by over-compensating - playing the ball way forward, up off my left toe. This will open my stance and cause me to hit the ball from outside to in, producing a bunch of pulled shots and slices. Gradually, I'll move the ball back in my stance, perhaps a half ball back at a time, until the pulls and slices stop and I get a series of straight shots.

If you're serious about playing good golf consistently, I recommend that you consider this type of post-round diagnosis and practice-tee cure, with ball position as your first priority. Once you find the position you like, take careful note of it and make it the first thing you check at address when you play your next round.
