Abbottabad Golf Club and the Kites

Abbottabad Golf Club (Explored)
Abbottabad Golf Club is perhaps one of the best golf courses in Pakistan. Overlooked by towering mountains from all sides, the lush green fairways are a treat to watch even by the non golfers. I visited the place last year in April, when the spring was in full bloom and the very high Maple trees were wearing their fresh green coats, standing on both side of the course as its custodians. 

It was a reunion of the veterans of more than three decade old association along with their families amid harmonious tunes played by the military band and the hissing sound of the fresh air that spread the floral scent of fresh flowers all over the place. We all gathered to remember the days of early youth when we came to Kakul, a nearby small town where the prestigious Pakistan Military Academy is located and moved out after two years training as young, aspiring and motivated officers. Coming back to Abbottabad was just like homecoming  - something that cannot be described in words. 


We in Pakistan normally visit Murree, Nathiagali and surrounding areas but miss out Abbottabad, which is a heavenly place and its golf course is more heavenly of all. Nest time if you are planning a visit up north, do include Abbottabad. You will cherish the memories forever. Such places are treat to be visited and enjoyed as words cannot describe the mood and the enjoyment one has when actually been there
