About this course
The Fire & Fury course is located in Leh very close to the airport & at a incredible height of 11500 feet making it the 2nd highest golf course in the world.This is a army course with preferred lies & has browns instead of greens. Closed during winters because of snow it is playable from May to Sept. Playing at this altitude is not easy as you need a day or two to get acclimatized lest you end up with high altitude sickness. The greens are browns – made out a mixture of sand & oil. Once you putt the caddies need to smoothen the browns out as the ball lines are left behind. The fairways have no grass but have a gravel and sand mix as the terrain is that of a desert. Off the fairway shots are taken using a mat. It will take you some time getting used to this though & is the modus operandi on all desert courses across the world.
