VISAKHAPATNAM: In an effort to experience biking and golfing along the Bay of Bengal coast, as many as 25 bikes from Hyderabad arrived here on Friday to explore and experience the new 21-acre golf course at Bhogapuram.

The sensor-based golf course and the motorcycle track course, made according to the International standards, are one of its kind in Andhra Pradesh to promote biker and golfer destinations in India. 


The nine-hole par three golf course along with the facility of a driving range of the course which is into the sea features specially designed floating balls that can be collected on the shore after driving the ball into the ocean.

Shyam Kapoor, an avid biker from Hyderabad, said, “The city serves as a perfect platform to attract the tourists, especially from the biker community. With an increase in craze for biking amongst youngsters, both men and women alike, the need of the hour is to develop motorcycle tourism hub.” 


Another biker who had come with his family said that this location serves perfectly for a weekend holiday.
Apart from the golf course, in a bid to promote eco-tourism along the wide seashore and provide oceanfront lifestyle destination to the tourists, a high-end destination resort named Sunray Beachfront spread over 220 acres is being developed at the same location, 45 km from the city.


According to the managing director of Sunray resorts, “This month we had groups of golfers from Raipur and Bhubaneswar availing of the services at the resort. With the addition of a helipad, we also expect tourists from the other States.” 


“While the Bhogapuram airport is expected to come up in the next few years and Vizag becoming a popular tourist destination, we wanted to provide a beachfront getaway,” he said. 

“Similar to the beaches in other countries, we have planted the Scaevola taccada also known as beach cabbage along the coast to prevent coastal erosion,” he added.
