About this course
Nestled in the foothills of the famous Chamundi hills this course is located in a 110 acre area. Named after the late Maharaja of Mysore, Jayachamaraja Wadiyar, this course was mainly patronized by the British in the early days. It is located on the premises of the Mysore Race club (horse racing club). The late Maharaja Krishnaraja Wadiyar envisioned this & chose this locale for the race & golf courses. Although the history of racing dates back to 1891, it was only when the race course was shifted from Hinkal to its present location in 1906, that racing and golf were given a new impetus.
In 1984-85, the Mysore Race club entrusted the maintenance of the golf course to the Mysore Sports club authorities. MSC continued the good work for a couple of years but due to lack of funds handed over the same to MRC. This prompted golf enthusiasts to unite & form the JWGC.Their objective was simply to promote the game & this is reflected in the fact that it is one of the best maintained golf clubs in the country today. For children below 14 years of age the club provides everything free (that includes junior golf sets, practice balls, coaching)
The course encourages Caddies to play on Mondays & the holes inside the race track are out of bounds till 0830 hrs – that’s for the horses to finish their training.
