Gurgaon: Becoming hub of golf courses
Gurgaon- the Millennium City is not only about sky-high buildings, posh shopping malls and corporate hubs. There is a different side to the blooming city as well and i.e. lavish and green golf courses. Golf- the game synonym to rich people and luxurious lifestyle is certainly not a cup of tea for everyone.
One won't believe that Golf Courses do exist in Gurgaon, a city enveloped with concrete buildings. Golf courses in Gurgaon are sprawled across acres and have everything to offer for the richest in town.

Golf Courses are a new trend in Gurgaon and is catching up rapidly in the social circuit of highly sophisticated people. The owners of the green lush surroundings have even inaugurated Golf academies with an intention to promote the game in the city.

Golf is a peaceful game and one needs to have patience, time, interest and lots of money to learn the game. Different golf courses provides different facilities to their clients and if you are intrigued by the idea of learning Golf, then you can head towards the following golf courses with your gear in Gurgaon:

DLF Golf & Country Club
DLF Golf & Country Club located in the DLF City Phase-V, Gurgaon has been rated as one of the best golf courses in India and is a heaven for the Golf lovers. The attached clubhouse is another destination you can head if you want to gorge on food or simply relax after a game of Golf. It also houses an academy for the beginners which is open to all, however if you want to spend some quality time with the grass then you need to be an exclusive member of the Golf Club.

The 18 holes golf course does not facilitate a single session game i.e. one can't just step in and pay. You need to apply for an membership to enjoy the game. There are several membership plans which ranges for a year and goes up to five years. The DLF Golf Academy currently houses above 400 children above the age of 6. The state of the art infrastructure might tempt you to shell out money but it's worth a try.

Golden Greens Golf Club
The Golden Greens Golf Club located at secor-43, Gurgaon is a favorite of many. Clubhouse and a Golf Academy is something which has become a common phenomena in the golf courses and Golden Greens Golf Club is no different. However, it is less expensive as compare to DLF Golf & Country Club. The membership of the respective Golf Club has been closed from the last one year.

The golf club is located only 25 minutes from the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) and if one needs to play a game or two, they need to shell out Rs.3200 on weekends and Rs.1600 on weekdays. The 18 holes golf club is sprawled across 275 acres. Their golf academy known as the Ultimate Golf Academy provides several packages for the golf loving families although there is no provision for the children separately.

Classic Golf Resort
Luxury and peace of mind has been redefined in the Classic Golf Resort. The 27 holes golf course with 3 nines each is located in the Institutional area of sector- 32 of Gurgaon. The swanky and humongous golf is designed by Jack Nicklaus, the legend in constructing golf courses across the world. The Classic Golf Resort is spread in 300 acres enclosed with green surroundings. If one wants to be a member of the same, then one needs to shell out Rs. 1,50,000 plus tax for a year and Rs.2,50,000 plus tax for two years of membership.

If one doesn't want to go for a full time membership, then one can buy bunch of prepaid rounds in the multiples of 100. The golf course also houses a practice arena and a golf shop where one can buy the perfect attire to suit the playing atmosphere. One can also gorge on the sumptuous multi-cuisine at the “The Golf Scape”- the restaurant cum bar in the periphery of the golf course.

The above mentioned Golf Courses are the ones that will burn a hole in your pocket (if spending lot of money does affect you). However, there are some economical options as well for those who are passionate about the game and cannot afford to shell out lot of money.

One can consider Air Force Golf Course, HUDA Golf Course or the TERI Golf Course where fees ranges from as low as Rs.30 and goes upto maximum Rs. 5000 for a full week membership. Therefore, take your pick and get engaged in the sport.
