Ootacamund Gymkhana Club

Finger Post(P.O), Ootacamund, The Nilgiris,TamilNadu,India-643 006.


The Ootacamund Gymkhana Club, situated on the rolling Wenlock Downs at a height of 7000 ft above sea level, is one of the finest natural golf courses in the world.

With the Avalanchi range in the surrounding and heavily wooded treeline that consists of Eucalyptus, Oak, Rhododendron, Gorse Bush and Fir, Ootacamund Gymkhana Club is a very challenging course to play in the midst of thick woods.

The altitude adds a good 7% distance to your average distance so a 150 yard 7 iron would travel 160 yards plus. This 18-hole par 70 course is 6208 yards long & is spread over 193 acres.A unique factor on this course is that off the tee 9 of the 18 holes are blind. The course is open 7 days a week, except during tournaments.
