He uses to camp in the cedar woods of Naldehra for weeks. He was so much in love with this place that he named his youngest daughter Alexandra after this place and was given ‘Naldehra’ as her middle name.
Surrounded by thick woods the course houses an ancient temple dedicated to Mahanag Devta built in the local style. The area surrounding the golf course is a popular excursion and picnic spot as well and offers some delightful walks and day-hikes. One can also go for horse rides around the golf ground.
