Layallpur Golf Club is regarded as one of the trickiest golf course in Pakistan. Primarily due to the fact that it is a small 9-hole course with Birdie opportunity almost on every hole for long hitters, but on the other hand with out of bounds almost right next to fairways makes it a very difficult course to score upon if you are missing the fairways. Greens are perhaps the quickest in Pakistan. It is very well maintained and equipped course 20 minutes drive from the Air Port. It lies in the center of the city on Stadium road right next to Iqbal Stadium.
