About this course

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 Srimoolam 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 – its 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 .

The course is open to visitors (Foreigners are welcome too ) on days when there is NO tournament & between 0830 am to 3pm .It is open through the week . Golf clubs are available on hire . However there is NO pro shop & you need to buy Golf balls / Gloves etc at a retail outlet called STYLE PLUS that is located 1km from the golf club .
