About the Cochin Golf Club
The Cochin Golf Club was established in the year 1922 by the British for their exclusive use. The Golf course was laid out in the Bolghatty Palace grounds. The Bolghatty Palace was built by the Dutch in 1744 AD and is located on the Bolghatty Island just 5 minutes on the ferry from the mainland of Cochin. At present the Island is connected by a bridge from the mainland Cochin. Another important fact is that the golf course is bordered on the three sides, by the well known Tourist Destination Vembanad Lake.
In the year 1909 the Palace was leased by the British and it became the official residence of the governors and their staff. The Golf course was laid exclusively for their use.
