The golf club in Chembur, one of the oldest Clubs in India, was established in the year 1927 under the name & style of “THE NEW GOLF CLUB LTD”, which is now known as “THE BOMBAY PRESIDENCY GOLF CLUB LTD” (BPGC). This is one of the leading and most prestigious club located in the central suburbs of the great city of Mumbai in Western India.
Just 30 min. drive from the Airport, BPGC is ideally located amongst 85 acres of lush green fairway. Although the course was fully operative & playable since the day of its inception, in the early 60’s, the course was redesigned by the famous Australian golfer Peter Thompson and with the co-operation & support of the senior golfers, the BPGC golf course was made suitable for playing the National Amateur Championship. The first match of the All India Men’s Championship was held in 1964, thus establishing the BPGC Golf Course as more interesting and the quality of the greens was probably the best in India and still is.
Women Golfers are also a “Force” to reckon with, on and off the course, encouraged, year after year, to participate actively in popularising the game. Interestingly, in 1998, the 20th Queen Sirikit Cup Amateur ladies' Asian Invitational Golf Team Championships were played at the BPGC.
The Bombay Presidency Golf Club Ltd. is on international map for Golf. BPGC encourages Junior Golfers between 6 & 18 yrs and conducts training camps for them every year to produce Golf Champions.
Constant upgradation of the Fairways and Greens have been the hallmark of the Golf Course resulting into the most demanding Courses in India. Those who have played here believe that BPGC is a morale breaker and is among the best in India. Many industrialists were attracted to the game by the avid golfers. Many celebrities patronize our Golf Course very often. Great golfers namely Nick Faldo & Colin Mantgomerie have appreciated our course after playing on it.
Special clinics are regular for juniors so that of late they have begun to make an impact on the national scene. The emphasis on junior training programs produces quality golf for the future and a happy atmosphere throughout the year. Professional advice is available for all levels of golfers including beginners.
There is now a total concept of golf, leisure, dining & entertainment with facilities added constantly.
The BPGC is the most prestigious golf club in Mumbai & in 2009 underwent extensive redesign & modifications to the course. It’s a very demanding course & has a large member community that is largely focused on golf.
