The Claridges, New Delhi is thrilled to announce a state-of-the-art golf simulator to its array of world-class amenities. The Golf simulator is designed to offer guests a unique and exhilarating experience, allowing them to improve their golf skills and enjoy the comfort and luxury of The Claridges.

The about GOLF simulator is equipped with high-speed cameras and advanced computer software that can capture a player's swing and provide feedback on their performance – where the ball drops, the club’s speed, the ball’s speed, the degree the ball was launched at, where on the club the ball made impact, the efficiency between your club and your posture. Plus, you can save all your data and view it on a table, giving you your daily average – all projected on the screen in front (which is actually made of a very thick material that absorbs the hardest shots on impact, and just drops the golf ball easily on the green carpeted floor of the room). With an array of built-in games and drills, guests can indulge in a fun and challenging way to enhance their golf skills. Designed to simulate various environmental factors such as terrain, wind, rain, and obstacles, creating an authentic golfing experience.

You can avail the services of a personal coach along with the golf simulator

The player can also choose to play their game on any one of over 70 courses worldwide, choosing to play 9 or 18 holes, the kind of weather conditions you wish to have – from the Colorado Golf Club and Blackwolf Run Championship courses to the Gleneagles Ryder Cup 2014. You can then add the number of players (up to 8 can play at once), and select the position of the tee. The actual rules of the game are replicated on the system. Then you can customize and choose at which hole you with to begin. For example, you can tee off at the first hole at Gleneagles, to start with. When the ball is hit, the screen literally flies over the green to show where exactly the ball has landed, giving a bird’s eye view, and the distance is given for each shot. Putting is no different: you change the clubs, and hit the ball just as though you were putting it on the green – with the slopes marked with moving grid lines to guide you. And all this comes either with a personal coach, or then without, it’s up to you.

The Claridges' golf simulator is an exceptional place for both novice and seasoned golfers to practice, record, and analyse their performance. The software provides feedback on each shot's ball speed, trajectory, and other metrics, helping players make adjustments to their swing or select the right club for each shot.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
