Ooty Golf Club -Ooty
The Ooty Golf Club was founded in 1896 but was redesigned in 1929 by Ross Thompson who turned the browns into greens. At an altitude of 7,600 feet, the golf course is open the year round. An 18 hole, PAR 70 course is very challenging and difficult. It is normally recommended that the first time visitor start out by playing only nine holes.
The entire course is surrounded by an avalanche range which contains thick woods. The golf course itself contains many copses of aromatic eucalyptus, oak, rhododendron, and fir which provide a very scenic atmosphere.
The Ooty Golf Club offers fairways that are lush but also tight. The club also offers the thirsty traveler a bar and a restaurant where you can enjoy a great meal after a day on the course. There are other recreational activities such as table tennis, a card room, and billiards and other facilities are available at the club house. The course also offers accommodations with six huts and an annex which offers ten rooms.
