Seems almost unbelievable, doesn't it? Yes, there's golf coming to the hoi polloi in town finally, and hopefully in a decade there will be a Sania Mirza in another sport. And if you stop being skeptical, it could be your own kid.
The Hyderabad Golf Association (HGA) is organizing a Reach Out To Youth program, a summer camp for budding golfers in the age group of 8 to 18 years, from 16th April to 10th May, at the HGA course at Golconda.
The camp is being conducted by G S Krishnan, chief coach, and will be spread over 12 sessions of 90 minutes each, 3 times a week for 4 weeks. The timings of this camp are 7am to 9:30am and 5pm to 6:30pm, and the fee for this summer camp is Rs. 5,000. The camp is being conducted for youngsters who have a flair for one of the world's richest sports.
The Hyderabad Golf Association, a not-for-profit body, was formed in 1992 with the objective of building a golf course to international standards that would stay accessible to civilian residents of the twin cities and their surroundings. It would also be an important addition to the social infrastructure of the city, which was becoming a major tourist, business and industrial destination. The course was also to be the crucible for training budding young golfers who would be the champions of the future.
