About this course
The DDPC Golf Course was formed at the Bokel Tea Estate along with the DDPC (Dibrugarh District Planters’ Club) in 1955. This was preceded by the unfortunate flooding of the Maden Memorial Gymkhana Club (which was established in 1878) by the Brahmaputra. The 9-hole golf course then was 5880 yards in length, rated 67.3 with Par 67. Later in 1998, the 18th Hole was converted to a Par 4 making the Course 5910 in length, 68 Par keeping the rating same at 67.3. The flat course of DDPC gives golfers a illusion of being a very easy to navigate course. However with OB’s in every hole punishing errant shots the course can hit back at a inaccurate golfer There used to be a very healthy competition among the Estate Managers in regard to maintenance of the Course, where Bokel tea estate always used to be at Hole number 1 & for which they always used to get the opportunity to maintain the Fairway 1 / 10, followed by Thanai, Sessa, Greenwood, Maijan, Dikom, Nudwa, Romai among others.
