It may have taken time, but the wonderful game of golf is finally making its presence in India. Gurgaon, the Millennium City in the state of Haryana, is undoubtedly the first one to be associated with golf tourism in the country. The recently held Haryana Golf Festival in the city has further attracted the attention of golfing enthusiasts from different parts of the world. The guest houses and other accommodations in the city experienced a huge number of guests from various regions during the event.
A contributing factor towards the growing popularity of Gurgaon golf tourism is the presence of numerous world-class golf courses in the city. The 27-hole ITC Classic Golf Resort is the oldest one in the city welcoming more than 10,000 visitors annually. DLF Golf & Country Club is another popular golf resort located near to the international airport. Lakes, streams, flora and fauna add to the charm of playing at this premier golf course.
Another golf resort in Gurgaon matching up the international standards is the Golden Greens Golf and Resorts. Classic Golf Resort is another name worth mentioning due to its golf playing facilities and international design. Most of these golf courses are few minutes drive from New Delhi, Noida and many other top cities neighboring Gurgaon.
In the recent years, a number of golf players from India have earned fame. The golf courses in the city are among the top places for these players to practice golfing. In addition, golfers from Europe, Middle East and other international destinations too have started taking interest in these golf destinations.
The urban lifestyle of the region and friendly Gurgaon guest house accommodations further invite the golf players in large numbers. More golf festivals and events in Gurgaon are expected to bring the country on the global map of golf tourism.
