1st Academy Students Championship Nov 2021

The Academy held its Inaugural, Students Championship at Jaypee Wish Town Sector-128 Noida on the 25th of November. It was a beautiful sunny day and the weather was perfect for all the participants to enjoy a tournament of its kind.

The concept of the event was unique, there was a championship as well as mentoring programme.  The participants were the juniors, amateurs and club golfers who have been a part of the academy program. Each Flight, comprised four golfers, of varying handicap. In every group, a low handicap player was placed to act as mentor, who during the course of play, shared information on Etiquette and Rules e.g. exchange of scorecards prior to tee-off, writing of score, when to take free or penalty drops in consultation with the Referee. Thus it was a learning experience for the High Handicappers and gave a sense of pride and responsibility for the more seasoned golfers to contribute towards the development of the game.

The event was conducted by the team of Monish Bindra Management which has been conducting golf clinics and tournaments since 2004. The tournament was keenly contested and the results are as follows:-
