KGF GOLF CLUB HOUSE

The oldest club in KGF was The KGF Golf Club which was established in 1885 and has the distinction of being the 4th oldest Golf Club in India. In those days, it was totally out of bounds for the Indians, and only the British and Europeans could become members. This club was and still is affiliated to Indian Golf Union and is affiliated to all the major clubs in India.

Because of the hilly terrain of KGF, the golf course was /is located in picturesque surroundings in the midst of a small natural forest. Unlike other Golf courses where the Putting Green’s grass is cut very short so that a ball can roll distances of several yards, this facility has browns constructed of river sand in place of greens. The golf course had a number of natural canals cutting across the fairways lined by huge trees planted more than a century ago, giving it the setting of a British Country side.
