Golf had already been played in India for 59 years before the first major course was opened in the USA in 1888. By the end of the 19th century India already had a dozen golf clubs. The Royal Bombay Golf Club was established in 1842 and the Bangalore Golf club in 1876 followed the founding of the royal Calcutta Golf Club. The Madras Gymkhana Golf Club was established in 1877, and 11 years later, Chennai got its second course under the name of the Cosmopolitan Golf Club. The Shillong Golf Club incorporated a golf course in 1886. In North India, Srinagar was the first to have its own course in the 1880s, followed by Gulmarg in 1891, known to be highest in the world.

Today India is ready to cater to the huge and growing demands of golf tourism. There are approximately 200 golf courses in the country, each one of them possessing unique characteristics and offering memorable playing experience. Most of these golf courses are backed with excellent clubhouse facilities, shops, food and beverage arrangements, practice areas and are well connected with the cities.

Buy at least a couple of bottles of mineral water before the start of your round. Dehydration is a real threat.

Chandigarh the capital of two states - Haryana and Punjab- is India's most modern and well -planned city laid by Le Corbusier. Chandigarh - an architect's delight- has well – laid roads, lined with endless rows of trees, shrubs and boulevards. The buildings are strategically and ingeniously set against the backdrop of the mountains. The city got its name from goddess Chandi Devi whose white domed temple stands on the slop of a hill in the north-east of Candigarh on the edge of the Shivalik hills.  Amongst its many splendors is the Rose Garden named  Zakir Gulab Bag - which is Asia’s largest rose garden containing 1,600 varieties of roses.The Sukhna Lake, a seasonal stream coming down from the Shivalik Hills, is also a great attraction. It attracts migratory birds from lands as far as Siberia and elsewhere.

Chandigarh Golf Club: The famous Chandigarh Golf Club is also called the Cradle of Indian Golf. This club has gifted the player like Chiran Jeev Milkha Singh, who became the first Indian to qualify for the European and Japanese PGA Tours. The 7,202 – yard, par –72 courses is an environmental lung or the city with its rich and varied species of trees and shrubs. Right next to the course is the Chandigarh Golf Academy Driving Range, an excellent facility boasting of a humongous green (some say it is the largest in Asia) for your short game practice. The course is known for its tight fairways, which are lined by trees and thick rough. There are quite a few dogleg holes here, but none gives the players a chance to take the shortcut as tall trees almost always guard the corners. The Club also possesses one of the longest par – 5s in India, the seventh hole which measures 613 yards.

Forest Hills Golf Resort: The Forest Hills Golf Resort is a nine – hole facility nestled in the foothills of Shivalik mountains and just a ten – minute drive from the Sukhna Lake. The Forest Hill Golf Resort is one of the toughest courses in the country from the championship tee. It is a thinking man’s course and strategy, rather than brute force, is required to tame it. The par – 3 second is a challenging hole. The tee shot needs to carry 219 yards of a deep ditch to reach the green. The par – 4 seventh measures 480 yards. Most of the greens have severe undulations, thus imposing a premium on approach shots. The par – 5 ninth is a double dog – leg and almost impossible to reach in tow. Some of the tees are on hillocks and require a climb of several steps. Surely, you would come out a few kilos lighter after the experience.



Agra has secured a prominent place on the international map due to its architectural marvel "Taj Mahal". Agra is also known for its superb inlay work on marble and soapstone. Agra is well connected with major tourism centers of India and is also a part of Golden Triangle of Delhi-Jaipur-Agra circuit.

The Agra Golf Club is a nine – hole course with some of the holes providing a spectacular view of the Taj Mahal. The tall trees on all the sides offer just a glimpse of the Taj dome from the clubhouse. The putting greens and the fairways are quite rudimentary, but as compensation, you have the magnificent Taj Mahal as a backdrop.



The capital of India, Delhi, has been witness to almost three thousand years of history. Among the various place of historical significance worth visiting is the famous Qutub Minar, the 73 meter tall minaret built by Qutub – ud – din – Aibek in 1199; the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, a memorial to the Mughal emperor; the majestic 42 – meter high arch of the India Gate, a war memorial in honor of the Indian soldiers who died during the first World War; the observatory; Jantar Mantar built in 1724; the Jama Masjid, South Asia’s largest mosque; the splendors of Chandni Chowk and Old Delhi. Delhi is a shopper’s paradise. Most states of India maintain marketing outlets in Delhi for their handicrafts. Dilli Haat, the first ever permanent fair for crafts, food and cultural activities in India, is one of the main attractions to those looking for handicrafts and wishing to sample the cuisines of various Indian states. Also on Baba Kharak Singh Mark, just off Connaught Place, are located the various state emporia. The best time to visit Delhi is the winter season, starting from November to March. Summer is very hot with the mercury touching mid 40 degrees.

                                                             Golf courses in and around Delhi
Delhi and the surrounding area of National Capital Region (NCR, comprising Gurgaon, Noida, Ghaziabad and Faridabad) is the true golfing capital of India. The sheer variety of courses in Delhi is fascination.

The Delhi Golf Club: You 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, an 18 – hole per 72-championship size golf course is perhaps the only one in the world, dotted with ancient monuments. 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 club has facilities that include a bar and catering a swimming pool, a pub and a health club.

The other two courses within the city limits worth visiting are the Army Golf Course in Dhaula Kuan and the Qutab Golf Course in Lado Sarai. The Army Golf Course has 18 well designed holes that will force you to use every club in the bag. Qutab Golf Course, which is maintained by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), is the only public golf course in the country. Wide open fairways and an easy layout are sure to give your ego a boost. There are three world class golf courses at a short distance away from Delhi in the city of Gurgaon. The par – 72 DLF Golf & Country Club was designed by Arnold Palmer and has 18 Immaculate holes measuring 7141 yards. Several water bodies add to the excitement of playing on carpet like fairways and swift greens. DLF Golf & Country Club is the only course in India to offer night golfing facility. The finishing holes of DLF are in classic style, in a sequence of par – 3, par – 4 and par – 5. Water comes into play on all three. There is a fully equipped golf academy and a clubhouse that adds to the unique golf experience. It has a health – club too. A few kilometers away is the Golden Greens, a testing 18 – hole links style course. The gusts can shred one’s ego on this layout and it is advisable to remain out of the thick roughs. You can also experience the deep sleeper bunkers on this course.

Classic Golf Resort (CGR):
The Classic Golf Resort is a signature course of the great Jack ‘Golden Bear’ Nicklaus. The resort has been built on a 3000 acre expanse, at the foothills of the picturesque Aravalli hills. The golf course is located on the outskirts of Delhi, off the Delhi – Jaipur highway and is about 45 minutes drive from Delhi. This fusion of international experience with Indian expertise, indigenous adaptation of globally accepted materials and processes as well the constant adherence to quality standards makes CGR a world class championship venue. The CGR is a magnificent facility with two courses – an 18 – hole Championship course and a 9 – hole Canyon Course. The championship course at the CGR plays to 7114 yards from the back tees. The par threes are particularly taxing with the eleventh hole a 224 – yard monster with a bunker in front and out of bounds on the left. The course puts up all resistance right down to the 18th hole. The longest hole is the par – 5 18th hole that is 580 yards long. The shortest is the par – 3 fifth at 170 yards. The fifth marks up for its lack of length by possessing a shallow, undulating and a deceptive green that can baffle any golfer. The amphitheatre – like green adds to the atmosphere. The par – 5 14th is also an interesting hole with as many as eight bunkers coming in play.

The Greg Norman, who designed Jaypee Greens is a lengthy 18 – hole course situated in Greater Noida. At 7,343 yards from the championship tee, it is definitely the longest course in the country and one of the longest in Asia. Nine huge lakes and five small ponds come into play on almost every hole, and the uniquely shaped bunkers are strewn over the course. There are 88 bunkers in all. However, the layout goes with Norman’s philosophy of course design that challenges the very best of the pros, and yet is enjoyable for the members, who can play from a choice of tees. The fairways here are some of the best in the country, but the greens are a bit on the slower side. Since the course just started in the year 2001, they would take some time to settle down. Two par – 3s (the 231 – yard third and the 216 – yard fifth) are especially tough and one might have to resort to woods to reach them in regulation. The par fives are long too. Water skirts the fairways all along the second shot on a couple to them.

Closer to Delhi is the Noida Golf Club, in Sector – 38, Noida. This is a fast developing 18 – hole championship – size course, which has added excellent fairways and greens in the last couple of years. The course plays to par 72 and measures 6,915 yards from the championship tee. The par – 3 16th hole is a killer, stretching 245 yards and sometimes requires a good tee shot with a driver to reach the green. The greens are large and true.
