About this course

The Jorhat Gymkhana is a 9 hole parkland style golf course which will test your game. It has a very mature tree line, lots of small ponds & water bodies and sometimes unforgiving rough that can test the mettle & patience of every golfer.The course has a wonderful mix of holes & you will need to focus all your attention to tame this layout.

The Jorhat Gymkhana has a rich & interesting history & is the second oldest golf club in India after the RCGC in Kolkata. We have been informed that this club is listed as the 11th oldest club in the world outside the UK (info courtesy Ronald Fream who sent us these facts). The club started as a recreational option for British tea planters in the year 1876, it was under the lead of J. Huttman, the then superintendent of Jorhat Tea Co that the club was built. It was relocated to its current location in the year 1885.

The beautiful clubhouse building that was built in 1885 involved importing material from Calcutta & this structure is still very much in use. This makes it a heritage site & has a very distinct architecture.The club was out of bounds for Indians until the Annual General Meeting of 1929 that passed a resolution allowing membership for Indians (without voting rights). This was passed by a vote of 29 to 14.

The Gymkhana club in addition to its golf course is also a venue for tennis, billiards, bridge, race weeks, flower shows, seasonal balls and of course the ubiquitous bar gossip. Its also a venue for the CK Naidu Cricket tournament matches, tourism festivals & pony / horse races.
