KGF Club Oograum KGF


The KGF Golf Club was established in 1885 and is the oldest club in KGF. It has the distinction of being the 4th oldest Golf Club in India. In those days, it was totally out of bounds for the Indians, and only the British and Europeans could become members. This club was and still is affiliated to Indian Golf Union, and it has the best Golf course even today and the club is affiliated to all the major clubs in India.

These are a few pictures of the KGF Club taken during my recent visit to KGF. The mounted Antlers and Horns still adorn the foyer of the club. The grand Piano in the erstwhile "Ladies Bar"now lies unused and in need of repairs. The Billiards Room however, is still in good condition.

Thanks for these lovely pictures and the write-ups. Having lived in Oorgaum till I was 12, I am more familiar with the KGF Club than the other places you've featured - and of course St. Joseph's. I think whoever grew up in KGF will have fond memories of the place.
