Did you know?

The Tollygunge Club was founded in 1895 by Sir William Cruikshank as a meeting place for British merchants and bankers, who sought refuge from Calcutta's sweltering heat. The club, located on a former indigo plantation, was effectively the first country club of its kind in India with a unique collection of flora and fauna that are rare enough to be found in prestigious botanical gardens.

Prior to the locality being named Tollygunge it was known as Russapugla. It was renamed Tollygunge after Colonel William Tolly was permitted to dredge the adjoining canal connecting the Ganga with the Matla and Vidya rivers.

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.
