NEW DELHI: This will not only be Delhi’s last 18-hole golf course, but the future Dwarka sub-city facility is also said to be the longest in the country at 7,366 meters in length. The golf course is being developed by the Delhi Development Authority and will feature a sprawling clubhouse with state-of-the-art facilities.

“The development of the Sector 24 golf course, Dwarka, is ongoing and is expected to be completed by December this year,” a DDA official said on Wednesday. The club house is expected to be completed by 2023. The project area spans nearly 158 acres, including 8.7 acres where the club house will be built. It will cost Rs 45.5 crore. According to DDA, 26% of the work has been completed.
The par 72 golf course has a proposed length of 7,366 yards or over 6.7 km. The Dwarka course will have four par 5 holes. The 18th hole will be the longest at 712 yards or 651 meters. There will be three water features, including an existing storm drain that has been incorporated into the development.
It is proposed that the club house has facilities such as steam room, sauna and massage rooms, gymnasium, restaurants, bar, cafe, delicatessen, pro shop, daycare and playground, doctor’s office, conference room and multipurpose room . A swimming pool with a width of 24 meters and a length of 42 meters is also planned with a small children’s pool next to it.
Near the clubhouse, DDA also proposes to build a golf academy and the space for the construction of the academy has been reserved in the master plan of the project. There will also be a two-level outdoor driving range next to the clubhouse, with a 6-hole, par 3 course. The driving range building will include a separate dining area and snack counters, fitness center, audiovisual room and lounge, among other facilities.
Upon entering the golf course, visitors will be greeted by a golf ball sculpture set in the middle of a water feature. In addition to parking large enough to accommodate approximately 190 cars, there will be separate parking for 100 golf carts. There will also be charging bays for electric golf carts and a caddy shack next door.
Like other sports facilities created by DDA over the past decade, there will be no lifetime membership offered at Dwarka Golf Course. Only pay and play facilities will be allowed, the DDA official revealed. However, quarterly, semi-annual and annual membership could be introduced, he added.
In its budget for the financial year 2022-23, DDA has allocated Rs 546 crore for the construction of new sports facilities. These include the Dwarka Golf Course and new sports complexes in Dwarka and Rohini.
