The Millat Tractors Governors Cup Golf Tournament will tee off today (Friday) here at the Lahore Gymkhana Golf Course and will be contested over three days from Nov 26 to 28.
This was stated by Sarmad Nadeem, Convenor Golf, Lahore Gymkhana, in a press conference attended and addressed by Sikandar Mustafa Khan, Chairman Millat Tractors, Ahsan Imran and Mustafa Sikandar of Millat Group, Taimoor Shabbir Captain Golf, Imran Ayub and Kh Pervaiz Saeed of Gymkhana.
Sarmad Nadeem said Lahore Gymkhana Golf Course has been prepared well for the sterling golfing manoeuvre that will put to test the skill of the eager participants. Sikandar Mustafa Khan said this is an annual event and a special feature of the championship is that it is open to amateur golfers only, allowing them the advantage of handicap because the main trophy is on net score. “Millat Group is pleased to sponsor such golf events which promote golf and encourage golf players of talent.”
Sarmad highlighted that participation numbers were large and total participation was 357 in events for amateurs, senior amateurs, ladies and juniors. Out of the competing amateurs, at least 28 belong to handicap category five and below and each one is highly capable and skillful golf player. Other aspirants play to a handicap of 12 and below and seek notability and recognition.
Taimoor Shabbir said Gymkhana Golf Course has undergone a lot of maintenance work, to get it ready for this important tournament. The fairways and the greens are giving a very challenging look, and the amateur participants will certainly enjoy playing on this golf course. Tee markers are going to be strategically placed and the pin positions will be ‘test oriented’. That will make life difficult for the top contenders.
