Dwarka: Residents of Dwarka and the Delhi NCR region who love golf have a reason to rejoice as a new 18-hole golf course is coming up in Dwarka. The long-pending ambitious project by DDA in Sector 24 is currently underway and expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The project is estimated to cost around 250 crores and will span an area of 171 acres, making it the first such project in Dwarka.
The golf course is being built according to international standards and will be equipped with various facilities such as a clubhouse, gym, swimming pool, conference hall, driving range, recreational hall, and restaurant. The golf course will have three water lakes, which will serve as a source of rainwater conservation for the entire area. The project is also using Indian grass for the entire golf course instead of the Mexican grass usually used for golf courses.
The golf course in Dwarka will be the third golf course developed by DDA, with the other two being located in Kutub and Bhalasva. Additionally, there are more golf courses in Delhi such as the Delhi Cantt, and Delhi Golf Course, located along Jakir Hussain Road, and at the premises of BSF Camp Chhawla.
Dwarkites are ecstatic about the upcoming golf course in the city. Joint Secretary of Dwarka Forum, Rajeev Solanki, who is fond of playing golf, says, "I am very happy that a facility is coming up in Dwarka, now I need not go to Kutub or any other golf course where I usually go to play. DDA is claiming to start this till the end of 2023 which I hope they must do." Sumit Vadhera, a passionate sportsperson, says, "The facility in Dwarka is a proud moment for us. This would open the doors for opportunities for budding golfers of the city."
