Did you know?

Established in 1829 in Dum Dum, a northeastern suburb of Calcutta, the Royal Calcutta (first named the Dum Dum Golf Club) is the oldest golf club in the world outside the United Kingdom.

King George V and Queen Mary conferred the Royal title on Calcutta GC in 1911 to commemorate their visit in that year. It is the only golf club in India honoured by royal prerogative during the period of British rule (1848-1947).

This is the home club of successful Indian tour player S.S.P. Chowrasia, whose father was a greenkeeper here, and where SSP started out as a caddie.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
