The Trivandrum Golf club is a 9 hole layout with a history that goes back to the 1850′s. The golf course was part of the hunting lodge of the Maharaja’s of Travancore .Built by the late Maharaja Sri Moolam Tirunal, this was their private course. This would make it one of the oldest golf courses in India (Royal Calcutta circa 1829 & the Jorhat Club & BGC circa 1876 are some of the old Golf clubs in India)
The Trivandrum Golf Course is situated in a 25.38 acre property in the heart of Trivandrum City, capital of Kerala & is owned by Government of Kerala. The unique clubhouse and the pavilion is over 100 years old. This is an archeological treasure of the state. This building is identified as a heritage building by the Department of Archeology.
The course has a very mature tree line & some interesting holes that make up for its compact layout & relatively short yardage – it’s a 2645 yard, Par 34 design. The very unique clubhouse – a heritage structure that is in a typical colonial era design with a pagoda shape & built of teak wood is about 7000 odd square foot large & was part of a restoration project in the early 2000′s .
