JLR (Jungle Lodges and Resorts) will be tapping the potential of golf in tourism. A resort is being planned adjacent to Belgaum golf course on an 18-acre land. The resort with about 20 rooms is expected to cost JLR about Rs 3.5 crore to Rs 4 crore.
Sources told this blog that officials have already visited the site a few days back and work is expected to begin soon.
The Golf Course, set up by the Belgaum Golf Association at Desur, is an 18 hole, 72 par, 7200 yards Golf Course. This is the first public initiative for such facilities in the whole of the Northern Karnataka-Goa region.
There is the IT park at Desur which is in the vicinity of the proposed resort.
