Jindal Stainless Foundation has offered grants to Delhi Golf Club to promote golf in the country.
The club has associated with the Jindal Stainless Foundation (JSF) to facilitate mainstreaming and adoption of golf.
The grant will be used to provide golf training to caddies’ children, staff, and other sportspersons, who are striving to upskill themselves.
The fund would also be utilised to upgrade and maintain green complexes at the club.
Deepika Jindal, the chairperson of the foundation, said, “Golf is a growing sport in India; however, accessibility to this sport remains a challenge for aspiring golfers.
There is tremendous interest for this game among youth.”
With this initiative, she said the foundation want to provide opportunities to talented and aspiring players.
This would help bring down the entry barrier to this sport, which currently is a detrimental factor for golf’s growth in the country, Jindal said.
To upgrading its infrastructure, the club has roped in renowned golf course architecture firm, Gary Player Design for the re-modelling project.
Its golf course is slated to re-open in end of 2019, post renovation.
India has produced a number of professional golfers who started their careers as caddies.
SSP Chowrasia, C Muniyappa, Rohtash Singh, and Ali Sher are among them.
Jindal Stainless Foundation was established with the aim of implementing various social and environmental initiatives.
