This delightful nine-hole course is beautifully situated above Trashi Chhoe Dzong. Resident Indian Brigadier General TV Jaganathan got permission from King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck to construct a few holes in the late 1960s, and the course was formally inaugurated in 1971. It's not cheap, but how often do you get to tee off in sight of a Bhutanese dzong and have to dodge chorten hazards?

Schoolboy caddies are available for around US$10. You don't need to make an appointment to play, but you may have to wait to tee off on weekends. The new clubhouse canteen has decent food and fine views of the greens.
