Women’s Golf Day Celebration across Clubs in Delhi-NCR
With the objective to engage, empower and support women golfers, Women’s Golf Day was first observed in 2016. Clubs in and around Delhi NCR celebrated the occasion last month.
Classic Golf & Country Club organised an event for members and non-members alike, in an endeavour to promote the game. It was a runaway success as participants flocked to the course for a round of golf besides connecting over refreshments and enjoying the fragrance of blooming flowers at the in-house nursery.
At Delhi Golf Club (DGC), over 60 participants (girls and ladies between 8 and 80 years of age) engaged in a fun round of golf over 9 holes at the Peacock Course. The group also commemorated World Environment Day. Different formats were adopted on each hole and, to emphasise the use of non-plastic material, wooden tees and pencils were used. Veterans Situ Puri and Aashna Monga were tied for top-spot while Himadari Singh was declared best junior. Anuva Saurabh and Lady Captains who preceded her planted a tree each to commemorate the occasion.
Over at Noida Golf Course (NGC), Lady Captain Kiran Chowdhury and her committee organised an enjoyable 9-hole tournament for ladies not only from the Club but from clubs across the National Capital Region as well. Golfing skills of participants was put to the test as only 3 clubs and a putter were permitted. Despite the oppressive heat, the event saw a large turnout.
