07Nights/08 Days/ 04 Rounds of Golf
Day 1 Arrive in Delhi Upon arrival you will be met by our Representative who will assist with the transfer and check-in at your hotel. The capital city of India, Delhi was also once the capital of the British Empire in India. Its richly layered history has seen a succession of empires come and go since the 6th century BCE. It has been captured, ransacked, and rebuilt several times, particularly during the medieval period. But perhaps it has received its greatest legacies from the Delhi Sultanate, the Mughals, and the British Empire. Their combined wealth of heritage endures in the city’s splendid monuments, architecture, cuisine, and culture. Day at leisure. Overnight in Delhi.
Day 2 Delhi After breakfast, go on a sights tour of the city. The spectacular heart of the city that is Lutyens’ Delhi (or New Delhi), is marked by its Imperial monuments – India Gate, the Parliament, and the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President’s residence). Old Delhi, with its 400 year-old web of alleys held together with great big meshes of electric cables, fascinating spice markets, old world mansions, bustling lanes, loud music, and the flavours of brewing tea and delicious street foods, shows you a remarkable and unexpected culture; and an ambience that is a lovely blend of both the past and the present. Here, the rugged red sandstones of the Red Fort, resplendent in the rays of a setting sun, are a stunning sight. Don’t miss the great mosque of India, the ethereal Jama Masjid that can give 25,000 worshippers room to seek the Divine. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the outstanding 16th century Humayun’s Tomb is the first of the garden tombs of the Mughals. The 14th century Tughlaqabad Fort, built by Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq, is a vast stonescape hugging a rocky spread. The grassy hillocks of the Fort offer lovely views from the top. Standing 73 metres tall in the Qutub Complex, the red sandstone and marble Qutub Minar towers over them all and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overnight in Delhi.
Day 3 Delhi / Gurgaon After breakfast, enjoy another exhilarating day of golf at the beautiful Golden Greens Golf & Country Club in Gurgaon. Designed by Dr Martin Hawtree in the finest ‘links’ tradition, the magnificent Golden Greens Golf & Country Club lies against the spectacular backdrop of the rugged Aravalli hill ranges. Spread over 275 acres, the 18-hole, par 72, 7100 yard Championship Course lends itself to several strategically placed bunkers on olive green meandering fairways Created in a way that integrates the landscape’s natural elements into the design, the course makes optimum use of windswept dunes, native scrub, deep pot bunkers, and subtly contoured greens to challenge the skills levels of every kind of golfer ranging from the professional to the high handicapper The course demands length, finesse, precise play, and strategic placing of shots to successfully negotiate it. Playing here is an exceptional experience, little matched elsewhere in the region.
Day 4 Delhi After breakfast, it’s time to try some great shots at the Delhi Golf Club. Set against the distinct backdrop of Delhi’s atmospheric Lodhi dynasty era monuments and dancing peacocks, the DGC is a glorious blend of history, forest, birdlife, and all this right in the heart of the city. The Club is home to the famed 18-hole Lodhi Golf Course, which plays host to the Asian PGA Tour. The DGC’s central location makes it one of the busiest courses in the world. With its impeccably manicured fairways and fast greens, its reputation as a great championship course is well deserved. The shorter 9-hole Peacock Golf Course here came into being when the course was redesigned by Peter Thomson in 1976-77. For nature enthusiasts, over 300 species of bird delight ‘birdies’ of a different kind with rare glimpses. After your game of golf, experience Delhi’s unique heritage as you discover not only splendid colonial architecture but also the Mughal legacy in atmospheric monuments and in the evocative lanes of Old Delhi. Overnight in Delhi.
Day 5 Delhi / Gurgaon Morning, leave for Gurgaon to play golf at the Classic Golf & Country Club. One of India’s first signature and manicured courses, the Classic Golf & Country Club has the approval of none other than Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear. The course at Classic offers a variety of challenges to the golfer: mounded fairways, strategically placed bunkers, water bodies, large greens, and high winds blowing in from the Aravalli hill ranges. Further, this is a 27-hole facility that comprises two courses: the 18-hole, par 72, 7114-yard Championship Course; and the nine-hole, par-34, 2825-yard Canyon Course. Set against the rugged beauty of the Aravallis, the 300-acre lush green facility makes for natural golfing country – the landscape lending itself to alluring fairways, cunning greens, and engaging waterways. Designed uniquely, the well balanced golf course mixes shot value and blends holes, rewarding the intelligent, strategic, and precise player.
Day 6 Delhi - Agra - Delhi After breakfast, drive to Agra. Go on a sights tour of the city. Built in the middle of the 17th century, the ethereal Taj Mahal took nearly 20 years, 20,000 workers, and skilled craftsmen and jewellers from Samarkhand, Constantinople, Kandahar, Baghdad, Bukhara, Syria, Persia, Balochistan, and Southern India, to complete! The white marble mausoleum was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan in memory of his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal, who died tragically young. The Taj Mahal is considered to be the greatest monument to love and is also the ‘Seventh Wonder’ of the modern world. With its beautiful minarets, a mosque, a fountain, water canals, gardens, and exquisite stone inlay work, the Taj Mahal is truly deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Built in the 16th century by the Mughal Emperor Akbar, the Agra Fort stands testament to his reputation as one of the greatest and most prolific Mughal builders. The majestic Fort’s ramparts are built in red sandstone and rise up to 70 feet in height. Within the Fort’s complex lie the royal harem, an area where the women shopped, the royal quarters, the royal hall etc. Drive back to Delhi. Overnight in Delhi.
Day 7 Delhi / Noida After breakfast, play an exhilarating round of golf at the Jaypee Greens Golf Resort in Noida. Developed like a classic style Melbourne sand belt course, the Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort owes its striking design to legendary golfer Greg Norman. Spread over 452 acres, the lush green fairways and the well maintained landscape of the 18-hole, par 72 course look fantastic from the viewpoint of landscape. With its 14 lakes and 88 water bunkers, the course is extremely challenging for amateurs and experts alike and has versatile options for all. There is yet another golf course at the Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort. Comparatively smaller yet promising with nine holes, two water bodies, and 11 bunkers, it has been designed by Graham Cooke.
