  • The Delhi Golf Club originally opened in the 1930s, but Peter Thomson from Australia designed the present Lodhi course in 1978. A keen student of golf history, Thomson was careful to incorporate all of the positive aspects of the earlier layout into his own work. The club occupies a privileged site right near the India Gate, one of the country's most revered monuments. Dense woods and prickly native vegetation define the boundaries of the course, so don't be surprised to see deer or even peacocks. Like all of Thomson's courses, this one makes for a thinking man's approach to every hole. Thus the driver can stay in the bag on some of the holes, since players will probably want to use a long iron or fairway wood to maintain control. The club's reputation is reflected in the fact that it has attracted a number of Indian Open tournaments.

    If you happen to be invited to play the Delhi Golf Club Lodhi Course, do not hesitate a second !! It is an awesome place with some tees alongside ancestral thomb monuments. I don't know if it is customary, but two caddies were assigned to me, one to carry my bag, the other as a forward caddy to spot my ball. One of them spoke English. My partner was a local aristocrat who played in a traditional white indian outfit. Rather impressive. He played very well and was of good advice on this technical course. The greens were not all perfect - some worn spots. But the fairway and scenery were just great. Even though you can see some surrounding buildings, the course really is a kind of calm parkland heaven into this extremely noisy and crowdy city. The club house lacked some style but it is nevertheless a place to visit if ever you are in town.

    A very tight and narrow course. Accuracy is the key to a low round at the DGC. You might as well not carry your driver.
