About Royal Calcutta Golf Club, Kolkata
Founded in 1829, ‘Royal’ as it is fondly known, is the oldest golf club outside the British Isles. You can almost smell the British influence once you enter the aristocratic building. Gleefully stuck in the royal times, the golf club has been home to some enthralling races and stylish soirees. But don’t get too overwhelmed yet. The race is where the adrenaline is and where the action really sets in. If you can, do catch a derby at this iconic turf and watch the handsome horses run in all their glory. You can also book a putting session at the golf field to get a taste of this blue blooded game.

Pride of place in organised racing in India belongs very rightly, to the Royal Calcutta Turf club. Although the first race meetings, such as they were, and about which there is any authentic record were held in Madras in 1795 where enthusiastic owners, mainly army officers, set their horses against one another on the long flat beach there, it is almost certain that a meetings took place prior to that date but, unfortunately, records were not kept. However, sporting owners had been taking on one another in Calcutta as far back as 1769. At first, races were held in the suburbs at Akra in the Garden Reach area where, at that time, the king of Oudh, deposed by the British, and his descendents lived in their palatial garden houses.
