Golfing in Upper Assam
Here’s a tongue twister, say this fast: “Tee-time in ten tea spots”. Read on if you could do that!
The Tinsukia District of Upper Assam is a beautiful part of the country, dotted with numerous tea gardens and golf-courses. I have put together a map showing the ten best known golf-courses (some housed in tea-estates) in this part of the country, along with details of each course (credits due to Upper Assam Golf Association & Golf Gaga). Click on the pins to see the details!
You can fly into Dibrugarh, and easily spend two leisurely, golf-and-tea filled weeks exploring this part of the country. While at it, you make several interesting & unique excursions:
- The Dibru-Saikhowa National Park (part of the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot), known for wild Feral Horses and many rare migratory birds.
- The 100+ year old Oil Fields in Digboi, and the still operational Oil Refinery.
- The World War II Cemetery & the Centenary Eco-Tourism Park near Digboi.
- The Coal Fields of Margherita, and the Stilwell Road ahead of Margherita that goes up to the Burma border.
