The Hyderabad Golf Club is a full-fledged 18-hole golf course located in a historic setting in and around Golconda Fort near Shaikpet. This tournament-level golf course is truly a gem in a pristine pasture of greenery. There simply is nothing like playing within the walls of an ancient fort. The third hole showcases the expansiveness of the golf course, when one walks through a tunnel under the massive fort wall to emerge into a vast expanse of green surrounded by centuries-old structures. Another hole is actually built on the ramparts of the fort, where one must climb twenty feet to tee off.
