Well begun is half done. E-news will stay! It gives me immense pleasure to share that the July 2017 issue of the E-News Letter launched as en- visaged, on July 6 succeeded in kin- dling interest among members. Members
have responded and taken interest. The launch kindled memories of yore. In its dig- ital format the focus is on making it an in- teractive port. Envisaged as a lively port for members’ interaction I am sure in coming months this will form a part of our daily net. We will strive to make it more conveniently accessible on net. Monsoon is all over us. The weather has been extreme from pleasant and cool to humid and hot. Golfing has remained unaf- fected by weather extremes. The Course play has been as frequent as usual. Diehard golfers have continued to throng the Course to score birdies and hole- in-one. Brig PN Malhotra (Retd) scored his fifth Hole-in- one on 18 July 2017 during his membership in NGC. Wonder if that’s not already a record of sorts. I am glad to share about the sporting achievers among our member fraternity. Our members excelled and made laudable achievement at the All India Amateur Golf Championship 2017 played in July at Banga- lore. This is a national level event by IGU. It is also a basis for selection of the national team. Some members earned a place in Indian Team. I am sure there must be many

Senior Amateur Golf
Championship of India 2017
This national level tournament was introduced in 1971 and being played once in a year for the national title amongst senior golfers in the age of 55 + The event is organised and run by Indian Golf Union the controlling body of golf in India. This event apart from deciding on the National Champion also is the base for selection of the team for International tournaments, like Asia Pa- cific Golf Championship held in different coun- tries by rotation. In the past 5 years this APGC has been held in Australia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, China and Philippines. This year this tournament is being played in Australia.
This year the tournament was also to select the Indian team in the age group of 50 + to play against South Africa at Johannesburg in August.
Golfers from all over the country participated in this event. We had players from Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana, Manipur, Deh radun, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Chandigarh, Tamil Nadu, and Qatar.
The tournament was won by Gangesh Khaitan a member of our club, who played very well with scores of 77, 76 and 81to beat Rishi Narayan by 8 strokes with scores of 81,84 and 77 The event was played over 3 rounds at Prestige Golfshire in Bangaluru in the last week of June. There were a total of 43 participants with 4 ex National Cham- pions and 4 ex Nation senior Champions. For the team to South Africa Gangesh Khaitan finished ahead of David De’souza by 2 strokes and the other members selected to play in South Africa in the age group of 50 + were Rishi Narayan and Anil Jule. Unfortunately Gangesh in the last moment withdrew from the team due to
some unforeseen reasons and Vijay Kumar Bha- dana another member of our club and two times national senior champion has been selected to replace him.
Along with this senior Championship Mid Am- ateur Golf Championship was also held in the age group of 35+ to 54. This was won by Ga- gan Verma with excellent rounds of 77, 73, 73 and 70. He was the only player to have played under par round in the entire tournament. He beat Simmarjit Singh our member by 4 strokes. Both Gagan and Simmarjit are members of our club. Other members of the team selected for the South Africa team are H S Kang and Sanjay Lakra for the age group of 35+.
