The Golf course of Shillong is one of the oldest golf courses in Asia. The course is set in a serene and picturesque frame at over 5200 feet sea level making it one of the highest golf courses. The ground is full of Pine and Rhododendron trees and greenary around the golf course surely gives a feeling of calmness and tranquility.  The place is recommended for family too as the children loves the open place to run themselves out.

The golf course enjoys the rare distinction of being one of the few natural golf courses in Asia. Not only is the Shillong Golf Course scenic and enjoyable, it is also challenging one for players of the game. It was during the year of 1898 when a group of British civil service officers introduced golf to the growing city by constructing a nine-hole course. The present 18-hole course was inaugurated in the year of 1924. The course is set in a valley covered with pine and rhododendron trees.

The number of out-of-bounds streams that criss-cross every fairway makes it all the more trying. Obstructions come in the form of bunkers, trees and rain. The longest hole is the 6th, which is a gruelling 594 yards. Shillong Golf Course is considered to be the “Glen Eagle of the East” at the United States Golf Association Museum.

The golf ground is located around a distance of 1 kilometer from the Polo market and one can easily get a local taxi or book a tourist car to reach there. The golfers can be seen playing early in the morning and rest of the times its occupied by tourists and local visitors who use the place as a hangout zone.

The sprawling, lush green 18-holed Shillong Golf Course is a beautiful sight to watch. The grass is rather thick and high, and is definitely one of the most challenging courses in India. At parts, the greens are lightning fast & are invariably surrounded by heavy sand bunkers.
The course is set in an undulating valley covered with thick groves of pine and rhododendron trees.
