Place is nice for a dry picnic with family and friends and also for just casually hanging out. If you have so much going on your mind and if you just want to go somewhere and I recommend this place. Also there are some good places nearby if you want to have some food.
Place where people enjoy playing golf in a natural grass and also good for family where they take their kids to play cos it's very safe. Many people went there for morning walk cos of fresh air.
Great place for family,kids love the green open space.. However finding a good restaurant is hard around the area..better to pack one's food
Beauty at its peak. Magnificent place, very pleasing for the eyes and the soul too💫it only lacks some good food corners. Hope great ones will be built up soon. Once that's done, one will forget it's way back home 🛣
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
