RN Sports Infra (formerly known as FRA International) contributes to golf and sports facility development by extending knowledge and marketing services resulting in sustainable and quality sports related facilities which stand the test of time. RN Sports Infra’s end to end approach ensures the design and master plan is made keeping in mind the end user and economical and optimum Operations. While many golf & leisure facilities have been built across India, most have taken too long to attain commercial viability due to grave strategic errors by the promoters and false assumptions. Our mission is to protect the interests of the promoters by ensuring they make the right decisions and choose the right partners every step of the way especially in the preliminary stages when many of the major decisions are taken. Tie ups with major international & Indian golf course architects, master planners, clubhouse architects, and construction companies enable RN Sports to draw on the best consortium of service providers to provide seamless and coordinated end to end solutions to a developer. Our comprehensive understanding of factors leading to success and failure of various Indian and international golf cum recreation real estate developments enables us to pass on the knowledge to new developers, saving crores of rupees in potential errors and enhancing revenues from Day One.
