The course itself is a fun, challenging layout and offers a variety of interesting holes that present strategic options to all golfers. The 5th hole is a long par 4 that all golfers will find intriguing. Measuring almost 400 yards the hole gently sweeps to the right around a group of bunkers located on the inside of the turn. But the fairway is enormously wide and seems to draw players to play to the outside of the dogleg. From this side of the fairway the approach shot is longer and has to contend with a large bunker that protects the left front of the green.
The 8th hole is a par 3 of almost 220 yards, it is rare to find a hole this long that is this much fun to play. The front left bunker that protects the green is supported by a large mound that extends to a huge roll the covers the front left of the putting surface. Combined with mounds at the rear of the green that give the back of the green a bowl like structure, golfers are challenged with a multitude of options to get near the pin. By running the ball onto the green with a low approach golfers can watch their ball snake its way to the hole with quite thrilling results.

When Sir William Cruickshank acquired 100 acres of land just outside what was then known as Calcutta in 1895 and founded the Tollygunge Club I wonder if he envisaged that over 115 years later his vision would remain as one of the most unique golf destinations in the world.

Over recent years, Golf Architects Pacific Coast Design have been charged with reviewing and updating the greens complexes.
