Bengaluru: Karnataka Public Works Minister H D Revanna on Friday, December 28 warned of action against the Bangalore Golf Club over alleged violations, including running a bar.

The government had sent a notice in October for which there was no reply, he told reporters here.

“We are issuing another notice and if the situation arises we will take over,” he said.

According to public works secretary Krishna Reddy, the Bangalore Golf Club got the land in 1882 during British rule, and the land’s lease was being renewed once every ten years.

“There is a lot of violations there (Golf club)….I have told our Secretary if action is not taken, I will take action against him. I have told the secretary today, to take up the issue seriously and issue notice to them,” he said.

The minister said the property was in the heart of the city. Constructing buildings, running hotel and bar inside was “serious violation,” he said.
“Whoever it is, if norms are violated, we will take action…rules have to be followed,” he said.

The land belonged to the PWD department, the minister said.

Earlier in July, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara had said the government would explore relocating the golf course after a golf ball landed inside Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s home office Krishna nearby, causing security worries.

The 18-hole golf course is located on a 60-acre plot.

Responding to a question on the proposed legislators club, Revanna said “We are finding place in Bengaluru that will also have facilities for journalists.”
