About this course

With the discovery of hydrocarbons at Nahorkatiya in the June of 1953, a flurry of activity started in the newly formed company christened as Oil India Private Limited (OIL). A new township was contemplated near the main production area & the search for land brought company officials to a railway siding called Duliajan. The area was thickly forested,but fortunately owned by a single owner – the Zaloni Tea Estate.OIL bought 743 Acres of land & started developing the township in 1959. Duliajan now required some recreation for the oil-men after a hard day of work. A small Trocco house was converted to the Zaloni Club by 24 founder members on the 3rd June, 1960. The present club building was constructed in 1968.With 8 golf courses around Duliajan, the golfing fraternity of Zaloni also decided to lay a small course. The initiative for laying of the Zaloni Golf Course was taken by D. Mc Donald Thomson, Drilling Boss of OIL & (Late) Tom E. Cavers, Manager, Bazaloni Tea Estate in 1964 Enid Hawkins & Dr. N.K.A. Iyer of AR & T Co. with their love for everything green helped in the planting of trees within the fairways. The “First” Zaloni Golf Course was completed within a short time frame & became playable by en 1964. Mr Mc Donald Thomson, who was a member of the Tingri Club, took over as the first Captain and Golf Secretary of new course.By 1965, with the help of Ian Ogg, a tea planter,the course was rated by the Indian Golf Union. Zaloni Golf Course has since gone through many modifications and changes in layout. The original golf hut that developed into a sprawling structure has been allotted to the Ladies Club of Duliajan & a new air-conditioned golf pavilion has been given to golfers.
