Three weeks back (Sept 22-23) I visited Eagleton Resort in Bangalore along with my colleagues. Eagleton resort is a very picturesque place with a hill as a backdrop and a beautiful lush green golf course. It is located on the Bangalore - Mysore Highway and it is 30 kms from Bangalore Majestic spread over 550 acres.
I had less than a day to spend at the resort with a packed schedule of fun activities in the evening and followed by the India - Australia Semi-final of the Twenty 20 world cup. The evening was spent having fun games and little bit of dance. It was a wonderful match which India won. We are now facing the music of the Australians in India for that win in Twenty20 world cup!!
The next morning I went around the resort. The resort has 18 hole PGA standard golf course. The golf course was well maintained and was very huge. There were lot of foreigners who were playing golf. I was surprised at the high number of korean-looking faces among the foreigners. Are there many Koreans in Bangalore?
The resort has all the facilities like swimming pool, spa, healthclub, gymnasium, conference halls, banquet halls etc., There are many indoor games like shuttle, table tennis and squash. They also have a room to play darts. While going around I saw some independent houses and when I enquired I found that there were plots which are developed and sold by the resort owners. I was told that the ongoing land rate is around Rs2300/- s.ft. Not for me, I left it at that!!!
The owner of the resort is from Andhra Pradesh, I was told. Eagleton resort provides a perfect ambience for a quiet weekend for a busy corporate exective in a very beautiful environment which would help to rejuvenate the mind and the body. I totally enjoyed my visit and decided to comeback someother time. It is an ideal weekend gateway for the Bangalore guys.
PS: The room tariffs are little expensive starting from Rs6000/- for a single occupancy. You can visit them online at http://www.eagletonindia.com/. I am also loading few snaps taken at Eagleton.
