India - Bollywood to Fairway Wood

India - Bollywood to Fairway Wood

August 28, 2018

It’s great to see this cricketing nation is also scoring well on the greens. Names like Gaganjeet Bhullar (Winner 2018 Fiji International) , Shubhankar Sharma (Winner 2018 Maybank Open) and Rahil Gangjee (Winner 2018 Panasonic Open) are all helping to get more youngsters into golf. Let’s not forget cricketing legend Kapil Dev who has become a passionate golfer and will represent India in the 2018 Asia Pacific Seniors this October in Japan.

You may be surprised to know that Ladies golf is also becoming popular. Sport is playing a crucial part in the changing role of women in India. While hockey and cricket are two examples of sports that have led the way, golf is slowly but surely catching up.

With a society that believed getting married at 22 or 23 years-old and becoming a homemaker was important, now there is a huge population of young Indians who are looking for new avenues in life and golf is one such avenue. Aditi Ashok and Sharmila Nicollet are just two examples. 

We’d love to see more and more young people playing golf. If Bollywood ain't your thing "swing" by and give golf a try!
