Stayed for 5 days in their largest guest accommodation (Dilkhush cottage - 3 cottages inside a two storey bungalow). It was a family trip including seniors and kids (total count 7). Cottage rooms were adequately appointed; bathrooms had basic/old fashioned fittings and fixtures. TVs provided in every room were old fashioned (not flat screen). Free internet with wifi router was available but connectivity was dropping every 5-10 minutes and our private wi-fi (portable router/ 3G card) was also getting blocked every 10 minutes (maybe security issue inside military area...). Excellent surroundings and good golf course. Transport (airport transfers and local sightseeing) arranged via reception was mostly fine except that heating (AC) in Innova was not working on the last day (one needs heating as it rains and the weather turns fairly chilly). Service needs to be professional especially in the dining area as one needs to wait fairly long to be served as staff gets busy serving military functions/ parties underway almost every evening. Try ordering a la carte meals in advance which we found to be a better option than set meals. We skipped meals on last day as we got packed stuff from nearby bakery (2 km walk). Also, communication can be poor since Dilkhush cottage rent was raised 67% since we booked but rate revision was not communicated to us. One needs to be careful of bisons and wild boars who visit the campus in late evenings. Generally, a quiet place to stay and enjoy golf at reasonable rates. Recommended for visit with family.

Stayed there for 4 days in Aug 2012. Beautiful english style cottages. You get a wonderful view of the teagardens from the porch of your room . Very well maintained rooms. Excellent golf course and you get to manage to play some tenniss too. Swaminathan the bearer takes excellent care of the rooms. Lunch and dinner are sligtly pricey for the fare offered. Overall an excellent place to stay in coonoor.

I played a round of golf. It was an excellent experience in the backdrop of tea gardens. The ups and downs add to the thrills. My caddy was Kumar, who said that he plays 16 handicap. He was good at suggesting he clubs i should use because due to he hikly terrain, the distanaces appeared to be very deceptive. The clubhouse is good and gives a cozy feeling.
The club also has a cricket pitch.

WGC is an excellent club but with only one problem you have to visit with your wife or girl friend otherwise club rules do not permit 2 males not father and son to stay in one room.Even If they permit they will charge Rs2000.00 extra or you have to take another room
