Chickmangalur Golf Club

Chickmagular Golf Club lies at the foothills of the Babubadanagiri Ranges across the Western Ghats which are simply breathtaking. Pacific Coast Design undertook the original design of the Nine hole layout which was opened in 2002. The Golf Course had been the community dream for a group of coffee planters from the region and their hard work has seen the members set up a great golf club and on-site accommodation.

Now after ten years the members have raised enough funds, bought additional land and have commenced construction in November 2012 on a second nine holes to bring the Golf Course up to 18 holes.

PCD Director Phil Ryan and Global Golf Director Prakash Alvares recently met the Committee (Old & New) at the Kadur Club (Coffee Planters Club established in 1887) in Chickmagular to reminisce as that is where the original meeting with PCD occurred to establish the Club back in 2000. After a hard day going over the construction site the team enjoyed the social atmosphere while remembering the many difficulties encountered over the years to get the Club to this point as well those members who were no longer with us to see share in the pleasure of the second nine.

The new 18 hole golf course will be a Par 68 of 5,610 yards and is being Project Managed by Global Golf (India) with Site Engineer Izzazuddin in direct charge of operations and should be open for play in August 2013.
