The prospects to work on a historic course was attractive for the Player Design team, who also has connections to several historic clubs including Wentworth Club in London.

“The opportunity to make a meaningful and lasting improvement to Delhi Golf Club that will serve the wide variety of their members is our primary goal,” said Jeff Lawrence, Vice President and Senior Designer of Gary Player Design. “This is an exciting project to be involved with because of its deep history and the clubs willingness to implement exciting design features within this iconic setting.”

Delhi Golf Club’s scope is the redesign of all the green complexes and putting greens. The intention of the design is to improve the design characteristics of the green complexes while maintaining the integrity of the traditional and iconic nature of the golf course.
