Out of all the places to visit in Shillong, Golf course in the most unique one! Shillong enjoys the rare privilege of having the largest and the only natural golf course in the whole of Asia. This golf course is also known as the Gleneagles of the East. Golf was introduced in Shillong in 1898 by a group of British civil service officers after the constructed a 9-hole course. Presently it has an 18-hole course, which was inaugurated in 1924. Even if you are not a diehard fan of golf, the beauty of the place is bound to keep you mesmerized.
The course in located in a scenic valley surrounded by pine and rhododendron trees, which is also home to many varieties of birds. As you take a stroll through these trees, the chirping of the birds will fill your heart with music. This golf link has also emerged as the most sought after picnic spots lately, perfect for those lazy afternoons under the glorious sunshine!

Shillong Golf Club, Shillong Reviews
Spacious outdoors feel with green vistas . Soothing rolling gentle verdant slopes are restful to tired eyes . Fun for children to romp and play, and great for hamper picnics. Of course, the lovers of the game have the first rights to indulge their golfing addictions on these old and serene links . Perhaps the maintenance of the course isn't as easy today because of the rather large numbers of non golfing visitors but the management of the Shillong Golf Club is tireless in its efforts
One of the sight seeing points of Shillong. It's amazing to find such good ground. So well maintained and clean. You can easily reach the place by bus or cab. The commute is really easy and the distance also isn't much far. Do visit once if you're in the city.
This is one of the beautiful place among many places in the north east. I love to go around during my daily morning walk and also I love to come with my family friends too. This is one of the tourists destination although this is a golf course. But everybody use to have fun in this natural golf course ie called Golf links.
Awesome place but pls don't litter. We need to maintain its natural beauty
Heaven on earth. Indians are yet to be aware of the beauty of this city in North East. Or else this would be crowded with tourists round the year. We stayed there for a night amidst curfew in the city due to some local skirmish. But wish we could stay longer. The beauty and purity of this place can not be describe in Words.
