GET, SET, GOLF
The inaugural edition of INDIA LEARN GOLF WEEK was a great success and the initiative witnessed huge participation across the country.
There was encouragement from various quarters as the week-long event received support from former India cricketer and Chairman of the BCCI selection committee Kiran More, who urged everyone to take up the sport and participate despite on-going festivities, from the David Leadbetter Academy, and from schools and top corporates.
INDIA LEARN GOLF WEEK (ILGW) is an initiative of the GOLF INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (GIA), in partnership with the Indian Golf Union (IGU), the Women’s Golf Association of India (WGAI), the National Golf Association of India (NGAI), Golf Course Superintendents and Managers Association of India (GCS&MAI), as well as the Professional Golf Association (PGA) of America, and it aims to nurture the next 100,000 Indian golfers. The inaugural edition of ILGW was held pan-India between 25th September 2017 and 1st October 2017.
GIA intends to work with golf clubs, driving ranges, coaches, and regional associations to develop a nationally coordinated grassroots movement in the sport ably supported by a highly visible media campaign.
