Gymkhana Club Overview

Ranked 1 of 36 sightseeing in Jorhat

The Gymkhana Club is situated around 4 km away from the Jorhat City Centre. This club was constructed in 1876 by D. Slimmon, the Secretary of the Club in the Seconidhara Village. Ever since its inauguration, the club has served as a venue for horse races. The Governor's Cup is the major event hosted by this club, every year.

During 1870's, the region was dotted with tea gardens and there was no recreational facility available for the British or local people in the region, which is why, the foundation of this club was laid. Now, the club has a 9 hole golf course circuit, which is amongst the oldest golf courses in Asia.

This club also has facilities for other sports like billiards, lawn tennis and polo. A swimming pool, a gentleman's bar and theatre are some of the other facilities available in this club. It has the Jorhat Gymkhana Ground, where the C.K. Naidu Under-19 Indian Cricket Tournament was organised. The ground is used by the Khelmati Sports Club for practising cricket.

      100 years old

      An excellent club near Prashanti Hotel. Almost more than 100 years heritage. A beautiful club. Food is very good, however getting additional service for visitors was restricted at that period of time. One should visit this and couple should dine one day. A maharaja style of service is fantastic
