Highlight Story

The first National Interschool Golf Tournament teed off at the Qutab Golf Course on Tuesday with 160 kids from 47 schools across the county participating in the event. The event is sanctioned by the Indian Golf Union.

The event focusses on golf at school level and encourages introduction of the sport as a mainstream discipline.

Juniors like Gauri Monga and Shreya Ghei are among the participants in the tournament that would be played over 36 holes with no cut. The youngest participant is six years old.

The event would now be a permanent fixture on the IGU junior calendar and the organisers are exploring the possibility of sending the winners to the International Interschool Golf.
