The Hyderabad Golf Club site comprises of the former Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad an adjoining water body,covering about 50 acres which is now the receipient of all the sewage from the surrounding areas and 110 acres within the 'Naya Quila' a component of the historic Golconda Fort complex. Situated in the 'Naya Quila' are two disused mosques which are being restored by the archaeological Survey of India.
Apart from the four hundred year old 'Boabab Tree' or 'Hathiyon ka Jhad', there is also a huge tower on which rests a 15 foot long cannon which is a part of the defences of the 'Naya Quila' that was constructed to keep the high ground to the north of the Golconda Fort out of reach of enemies who might use the vantage point to bombard the Fort.
The Course itself has been designed by Mr. David Hemstock who has designed courses all over the world. In India he has designed the Amby Valley Golf Course, a part of the ambitious Lake City project of the Sahara Group.The course will be situated in one of the most unique sites in the world as it almost totally located within the ramparts of Naya Quila, part of the historic Golconda Fort complex. Our Course will be a 7000 yard, par 72, 18 hole course built to international standards and keeping in mind the location, the history and the ambience of the area. The first half will be a par 37 and the second half a par 35.
Lending itself beautifully to the surroundings, the Course boasts of a natural lake and stretches into the Naya Quila.
Creatively designed to accentuate the historical setting whilst preserving the ecological balance, the spectacular 18 hole Golf Course will be an experience.
