About this course
The Rambagh Golf club is strategically located close to the Ambedkar circle & is a picturesque course . A game of golf here will transport you into the bygone days as you catch glimpses of the Rambagh Palace Hotel, The Moti Doongari & Nahargarh Forts & the Birla Planetarium.
The origins of the Rambagh Golf Club date back to October 1944. Rajmata Gayatri Devi of Jaipur is the founder & life long captain of the club. After she returned from Gulmarg in October 1944 from a holiday where she got keen on playing golf, she requested the permission of the late king to lay a course on the Rambagh Palace grounds for which he readily agreed. With the help of seasoned golfers a interesting course was laid out .
The Fairways were rough & full of burrs that would stick to players shoes & socks, the browns were true & good. As remembered by Rajmata sahab there were four regular foursomes & a couple of twosomes to start with but as time passed more & more people wanted to learn to play golf and so Mr. H. Duckworth, a professional from Calcutta, was invited to coach them. He was asked to pay special attention to Mr Gul Mohammed, who had just been employed as a professional.
Post independence the club was run on a shoe string budget but with the Tourism Department, Government of India committing itself to supporting & sponsoring golf, a size able financial input was made available to the club. Thereafter there was no looking back. Lt. Gen. Himmeth Singh, Sh. Yatinedra Singh, Sh. P.C. Maheshwari, Maharaj Sultan Singh, Sh. S. C. Mehta, Sh. Kishal Lal, Sh. Madhukar Chaturvedi, Thakur Pushpendra Singh, Sh. Vikramaditya Singh, Sh. Kamlakar Sharma, worked with missionary zeal, selfless devotion & meticulous planning in development work on the golf course.
