Golf Links is a neighbourhood in New Delhi, India. It is in walking distance to Khan Market. It is considered as one of the most expensive areas to buy real estate in India. The name is inspired by the Delhi Golf Course nearby. It is close to a similar neighbourhood called Jorbagh and is a quiet residential area.
Golf Links is located in Central Delhi and is close to India Gate, Supreme Court, Delhi High Court and other important government offices. The larger plots are on the outer edge facing Lodhi Road and the Delhi Golf Club, while the inner plots are much smaller.
Golf Links is a gated residential colony, surrounded by the Delhi Golf Course to its east and the Lodi Estate to its west. It has 212 independent houses. The smaller houses and floors are around green crescents distributed along the tree lined central avenue. The larger plots are distributed on the outer periphery. There are no shops or commercial activity in the neighborhood.
Golf Links has a small neighborhood club and a children’s play area. A calm, orderly environment, proximity to the central business district (CBD), international schools, United Nations offices, diplomatic missions and metro station make Golf Links a popular residential district for expatriates and wealthy Indians.
In 1997, due to a kidnapping of a child, this area shot into the national limelight. Since then, security has been enhanced. The neighborhood currently features round-the-clock patrolling by Delhi Police and guards hired by the residents association.
