Jorhat Gymkhana Club , Jorhat Overview

Built by D. Simons, Jorhat Gymkhana Club is a sports venue in Jorhat that majorly focuses on horseracing, lawn tennis grass courts, billiard, swimming pools, gentleman’s bar, cinema theatre and polo. This club dates back to the British era as it was built in 1876. It is the site for the Governor’s Cup event every year and has served as a venue for horse racing for over 140 years.  

In the 1870s, this area was used as a tea garden and there was no area for recreational activities for the British or locals. As a result, the foundation of this club was laid, making the 9-circuit golf course one of this club the oldest golf courses in Asia. The original club was located in the middle of the racecourse serving as a parade ground and camping area. However, the club was relocated and the present club was established in 1885. This Club is known for organising C.K Naidu’s Under-19 Cricket Tournament and the ground here, called Jorhat Gymkhana Club Ground has a capacity of 8000, has a turf wicket and is used by Khelmati Sports Club for Cricket.
