Introducing TNGFIt was as early as in January 1938, the 15th day to be precise, when the Rt. Hon'ble Victor Alexander Hope, the then Governor General of India, inaugurated a golf course in the city, little knowing that close to a century later, it would blossom and flourish into one of the premier courses in the country. Over the years, with a growing popularity, but still perceived as the preserve of the rich and elite, the course evolved till, with the passage of time, the barren browns turned into verdant greens and the sport extended itself into the reach of the everyday person.
With the turn of the millennium, like a larva turning into a butterfly, the transformation moved up a notch, into metamorphosis, with the TNGF taking over the administration of the course. The task was uphill all the way. It was as early as in 2000, under the able stewardship of the President, Mr N Srinivasan, backed by concerted efforts of a golf loving committee, that the transformation of the course, designed by the legendary Peter Thompson, took roots.

"Que Sera, Sera (Whatever will be, will be)" - President's favorite words
Our Golf Course today presents a picturesque and lush green look and remains the most preferred and sought-after Golf Course in the region. The feedback received from members, distinguished guests, professional Golfers, Visitors etc. is extremely positive and reflective of an outstanding Golf Course. Our continued objective is to present the best manicured course that can be achieved with the available resources.
The other objective is to do as much as possible to weather-proof our Golf Course so that during the monsoon and other rainy days the course can be kept opened for members. There was a temporary disruption in play due to the unprecedented flood and renovation works under taken thereafter. The inconvenience was unavoidable and the changes have resulted in a course which is more challenging, satisfying, and competitive and weather proof to certain extent.
