Opened in 1883, the Mahalaxmi Racecourse is an oval horse racing track with 2400 meters straight chute and which sprawls over 225 acres of land. The public has access to the inner lane of the racecourse for jogging, walking or exercising. However, the splendor of this venue can only be felt during the annual Indian Derby held from mid-November to last week of April. That’s when the venue is packed with glitterati and derby fans.
India’s first Formula One Grand Prix was held at the Buddh International Circuit. This venue played host to the Indian Grand Prix from 2011 until 2013. It can seat a staggering 120,000 spectators. Sprawling over an area of 874 acres, the circuit is 5.13 kilometres long. Racing enthusiasts dream of driving on the F1 track, and this venue offers that opportunity. The track is open twice a week for such activities. It costs around INR 5,000 ($78) for five laps, INR 10,000 ($156) for 30 minutes and INR 15,000 ($234) for 60 minutes track time.
What’s so iconic about the Delhi Golf Club? It’s the oldest golf club in India, built in 1930s and it is one of the most spectacular golf courses in the whole of Asia. It also has an 18-hole course (called ‘Lodhi Course’) and a nine hole course (called ‘Peacock Course’). It also offers a huge bungalow-style club house with swimming pool, gazebos, a sauna, an indoor/outdoor bar, a gym, a restaurant and a large lawn. The venue is perfect to relax and play a round of golf. This venue is close to the major attractions of the city, including India Gate, Lodhi Gardens and Humayun’s Tomb.
