In 1906 The Late Maharaja Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar chose the foothills of the famous Chamundi Hills as the location for the Race and Golf courses. Located on 110 acres in the premises of the Mysore Race Club. The course was redesigned in 1996 by Pacific Coast Design Company Australia. It is a 18-hole par-70 course on the foothills of the Chamundi Hills. The browns have all been converted to greens and they are of good quality. The fairways are tight and improving every year. The course was started by Krishnarajaa Wadiyar, the Prince of Mysore.
The opening two holes are extremely challenging – the first is a par-4 of approximately 400 yards and is out of bounds on the left and right as well. The second is a par-3 measuring 210 yards with OB on both sides again.
A brown course, the JCW Golf Course is laid out within the Race Course at Mysore. The size of the course is one hundred acres. Krishnarajaa Wadiyar, the Prince of Mysore, started the course and maintained it until he lost his privy purse. With a par rating of 63 when it was started, it is 70 today. The course is out of bounds during the racing season in Mysore.
The two major tournaments conducted here are Maharaja’s Tournament and Addicts Golfing Society of Southern India..
