About this course

The Naharkatia Planters Club Golf Course is a 6469-yard par 72 course situated at Achabam Tea Estate approximately 15km from Naharkatia town. The course has 9 Greens. The first competition ever was a Bogey competition (9 Holes only) on the 2nd Nov 1974. The 7 adventurous souls who played this tournament were A. Borgohain (18), M. Mathews (22), G Dua (24), R.T. Bedi (24), P. Singh (18), M. Singh (18), G. Singh (18). I quote the comments recorded on the Competition Register: “First round played on the New Course. The first shot off the tee was taken by R. T. Bedi. After a tremendous swing the ball traveled 6 inches off the tee. Followed by A. Borgohain. Brand-new ball off the wrapper. First hit shied & landed 50 yds towards the right. Out of Bounds”. The formal inauguration of the course was done on November 3, 1974. The tournament was a Stableford event (18 holes). There were 24 gentlemen and 6 lady participants.

I now quote the remarks recorded on the competition Register: “Course was formally inaugurated by Urmi Bedi. She made no mistake and had a beautiful shot off the tee. General complaint from all players was about the No. 3 hole where many good balls lost their way. Greens need further improvement.”
Over the years there have been many improvements to the Course. A number of holes have been lengthened and bunkers added to make the course more challenging. Hole no. 3 continues to be as formidable as ever—especially for the higher handicappers!
A number of gardens have provided help for the maintenance of the Course namely Achabam, Langharjan, Namroop, Naharkatia, Azizbagh and Umatar A great deal of effort has gone into improving the 19th ‘Water’ HOLE. It’s called the “Photika”. Of course we Naharkatians look forward to trapping our over-zealous quests on this treacherous ‘water hazard’. So do come and join us for a round of Happy Golfing!
