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.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges.
