The Hyderabad Golf Club is located just opposite the Qutb Shahi Tombs and shadow of the historic Golconda Fort


An 18-hole, 6057 yard, Par 71 golf course, with water bodies and vast greens along with training facilities such as a Golf Academy, Driving Range, and a club house.[2]


In 2010, the Hyderabad Golf Club set up an illegal golf course within the premises of the historic Naya Qila, which has resulted in outrage among heritage activists.[3][4] Against ASI rules, the golf course restricted tourists' entry to the fort. As of 2019, the course is still active.[5][6]
