Very soon, you will be able to tee off in a golf course of international standards in Delhi, and that too by paying a very nominal fee. The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is coming up with a ‘state-of-the-art’ 18-hole golf course spread over an area of 173 acres in Dwarka — the biggest ever by the agency.
“DDA is the first to bring this elite sport to the doorstep of the common man,” said Neemo Dhar, DDA spokesperson. “Our golf courses allow ‘pay and play’, which brings the sport to the common man. The pattern is being replicated in our upcoming golf courses,” she said.
Apart from the gold driving range, the complex will house a training centre, club house, swimming pool and gymnasiums of international standards. The golf course will come up at Dwarka Sector 24, next to the proposed diplomatic enclave and international convention centre planned by the DDA. The golf course will also be very close to the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
