DELHI GOLF CLUB GOLF COURSES IN INDIA
Delhi Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Delhi, established by the British in 1931. One can tee off from the shadows of the Lodhi Dynasty tombs or get held up because a peacock decides to perch itself on the green. The DGC is perhaps the only one in the world, dotted with ancient monuments.
The Delhi Golf course is also a sanctuary for over 3OO species of birds, and the golfer is often startled by the rain dance of the colourful peacock or the scurrying of a partridge. Planted with a variety of over 200 trees, the Delhi course is the most lush in the country, and its sandy loam has produced a rich turf good for the exacting fairway shots.The thorny bushes lining the fairways of DGC, put a huge premium on accuracy. A nine-hole Peacock Course is also a must explore. The DGC also scores for its unbeatable location – it is situated right in the heart of the city, just a short distance away from India Gate. The DGC is home to many professional tournaments including the Indian Open, part of the prestigious Asian PGA circuit.
The other two courses within the city limits worth visiting are Army Golf Course in Dhaula Kuan and the Qutab Golf Course in Lado Sarari. The Army Golf Course has 18 well-designed holes that will force you to use every club in the bag. Qutab, which is maintained by the Delhi Development Authority ( DDA ), is the only public golf course in the country. The 18-hole course yardage 5838, is a delight for those wishing to brandish their driver at every possible hole. Wide-open fairways and an easy layout are sure to give your ego a boost.
