Delhi Golf Course
|City :||New Delhi|
The Delhi Golf Club is one of the oldest golf-courses in Asia and the oldest one in Delhi. It was founded in the 1920s as the Lodhi Club and is located on Dr. Zakir Hussain Road.
The course was originally laid out by the British, integrating existing Mughal structures and tombs such as the Lal Bangla into the course. The golf club has undergone various changes over time, and at one point it had to sell at least a third of the land it occupied to the municipality of Delhi in order to finance itself. Today it is a favourite meeting point of the Delhi elite and hosts various tournaments and cups such as the Indian Open.
The course, comprises the championship 18-hole Lodhi Course and the shorter 9-hole Peacock Course. The latter came into being when the course was re-designed by Peter Thomson in 1976-77.
