The Defence Housing Authority Lahore’s vision is to provide quality homes for the people of Pakistan, and to create a benchmark for property development in the country.
In the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Lahore, there is a demand for luxurious homes that cater to the every need of its elite. These are people who demand and deserve the best, and DHA Lahore is committed to meeting their needs.
To do this, it has forged a partnership with Bandar Raya Developments Berhad (BRDB), a Malaysian developer with a strong track record for creating luxurious, high quality homes in neighbourhoods of enduring value. Defence Raya Golf Resort is the result of a partnership between DHA Lahore and BRDB Malaysia.
These two formidable brands have come together to create the first integrated township in the heart of Lahore. The township is Pakistan’s first golf resort and housing community and is situated in Phase 6 of DHA Lahore. Built around the lush greens of an 18-hole international-standard golf course, the entire township spans 400 acres of beautifully landscaped luxury homes, a prestigious golf and country club, a retail centre designed to meet every lifestyle need as well as high-end business premises.
The residential units include 1 and 2 Kanal villas, 14 marla semi-detached houses as well as trendy condominiums.

For more information on Nelson & Haworth Golf Course Architects, visit www.nelsonworth.com . Nelson & Haworth designs are noted as much for their visual drama as for their appeal to golfers of all levels.
At Defence Raya Golf & Country Club, they have designed a course that transforms the current flat site to a stimulating environment for golf, while creating panoramic views for the luxury homes that surround the course.
Winding lakes and water features cut into undulating fairways leading up to the elevated greens and tee. Fairways swoop and dip, creating interesting and challenging golf as well as a course of great visual appeal, particularly when the shadows of late afternoon highlight the ground contours.
Strategic in nature, the golf course will reward golfers who are able to think as well as control the flight of their shots. However, fairways will be wide and greens generally open on at least one side, so that beginners are not discouraged.
