Located in the heart of the city, opposite the race course and close to the Haji Ali circle, the Willingdon Sports Club is one of the old British era clubs. It was built in 1933 by Lord Willingdon, the then Governor of Mumbai. Today the club boasts of an 18 hole golf course plus a pool, 6 tennis courts, squash and badminton facilities and a health club.
Located adjacent to the race course it is centrally located. With a mature tree cover, the course is an oasis of green surrounded by tall skyscrapers and the contrast is sometimes jarring. While it is a very short course at only about 4500 yards, it offers its own set of challenges - tight fairways, hazards galore and fast greens. The course boasts of the highest number of grass bunkers of any course in the country & a lot of visiting golfers are often at their wits ends when playing out of them. With only one Par 5 hole it might seem like a cakewalk for the pro’s, but play a round here & you will be surprised with how challenging the course can be.
