HERITAGE

BGC is the oldest golf course outside of the British Isles. Established on a summer evening on June 24th of 1876, the land was previously used by an army regiment as a rifle range & training area. The course started with a 12 hole design & was transformed many a time, the last being a redesign in 2000.

The annual tournaments between BGC & the Madras Gymkhana club (started in 1878) are the oldest inter-club annual matches anywhere in the world. In 2002, the fully redesigned course was opened & had the distinction of being one of the few courses in India that pioneered the use of recycled effluent water for irrigation of trees, fairways & greens. During the redesign, the brief was to accommodate a 18 hole course in a 60 acre plot ( a rather tight squeeze), with a minimum of criss-crossing & without cutting a single tree.

Phil Ryan, a gentle, soft spoken civil engineer turned golf architect, who has vast experience working across Asia, finally came up with a “new plan” which gained universal acceptance. The new plan set in a totally restructured & landscaped course, that is tight & calls for a premium on accuracy with the huge tree cover & is a treat to play. Of the total cost of nearly INR 40 mn, 90% was generated from the internal resources of the Club & the rest by generous donations from industrial houses & individuals. The course currently plays to a 6118 yardage from the men’s tees as a Par 70, 18 hole course. BGC, along with Bangalore Club, is one of the oldest & prestigious social clubs in Bangalore, with few thousand elite members.

HEART OF THE CITY

The Bangalore Golf Club is located in the heart of the city. It is easily accessible from the Bangalore International airport, is a stone’s throw from Vidhana Soudha and in the midst of a large number of upmarket hotels. Apart from being an unforgettable golf experience, it also provides much needed lung space to Bangalore, through its large number of trees and open area. Visitors arriving at Bangalore from the airport are treated to gorgeous views of the lush, green course.

COMMITTEE

The BGC management committee consists of the Course Captain, Secretary, Treasurer and 5 general committee members, along with the Immediate Past Captain. Posts on the management committee are filled through election. These are usually held in June.
