The Misa Polo Club was built with the intention of creating a social and educational hub for the tea planting community. It is located in the picturesque Kellyden Tea Estate which is a 3 hour’s drive from Guwahati, the capital of Assam. It is just 40 kms from Nagaon and 35 kms from Tezpur. Kaziranga National Park, a world heritage site, famous for its one horned rhino and rich bio-diversity, is just an hour’s drive away from the Club.

The Club plays host to the planters and their families of the surrounding tea estates as well as army officers of the Misa Army Base which is located in its periphery. Its social calendar features different tournaments viz. tennis, golf, etc. as well as Fortnightly Suppers and festive celebrations.

The Club still has a functional helipad, a remnant of World War II which Is used by dignitaries even today.

 


 

Historical Background

The Misa Polo Club was established in 1888 as a social Polo Club for the planters and heads of the British District Administration. The British planters introduced the club culture and encouraged social interaction through sports and other celebratory occasions. Apart from the facilities for indoor games, tennis and cricket, a 9 hole golf course was added later

The Club was used by the US Army when they were temporarily stationed in Misa during World War II and gifted a plaque to the Club in appreciation for its hospitality.

 


 

Vision

The primary aim is to revive and resuscitate this colonial heritage club and transform it into the pride of Assam.With the re-alignment of the Asian Highway, the club’s location has assumed strategic importance as a midway transit point for visitors who are on their way to upper Assam. They can lodge at the club to experience the grandeur of the colonial past.Also, the club is keen to establish itself as a modern Management Centre of Excellence where skills on the playing fields will supplement the collective exchange of ideas and learning at the Convention Centre Hall.This revamp is not just the dressing up of a Planters Club. It is the creation of a sporting centre a management convention hub and a tourist destination on the Asian Highway across the state. The Club would also be a retail outlet for the present and proposed range of products in our retail chain. A chance to blend sales with the overall Heritage experience.The need to do this project is to fulfill our commitment to the workers, local populace and the Govt. By walling in the entire area of the Club we have securitized, protected and brought into the fold approximately 34 Ha of land which in parts was being cultivated or lying fallow and unused. This will facilitate the extension of the Golf Course with the addition of the back nine.
