LAHORE-The 16-member Lahore Garrison Golf Team emerged as champion club team in the Pakistan Golf Federation (PGF) Inter-Club Golf Championship 2021, which concluded here at the Lahore Garrison Greens Golf Course on Sunday.
Garrison team comprised two golf professionals Matloob Ahmed and M Shahzad, four amateur golfers Tariq Mehmood, Col M Shafi, Nauman Ilyas and Damil Ataullah, two junior golf professionals M Saqib and Akash Bashir, two junior boys Tayyab Tahir and Shahbaz Ali, two junior girls Hadiya Osama and Bushra Fatima, two ladies Ghazala Yasmin and Suneya Osama and two senior amateurs Rustam Ali Chatta and Col (r) Asif Mehdi.
This team combination performed splendidly while the golf professionals and amateurs came up astounding scores backed by steady golfing from senior amateurs, those falling in boys, girls and ladies segments were equally notable in their run of play. And Lahore Garrison Team owes this meritorious rendition to diligent, earnest and strenuous effort on the part of the team members. Final team scores were 3,096 for Lahore Garrison, 3,411 for DHA Karachi and 3,413 for Islamabad.
As for the other aspiring teams, DHA Karachi missed out the honors and so did Peshawar Club and Islamabad Club. Their players belonging to professional category and amateur category came up with commendable performances but could not get the required support from the other categories, who were not as well prepared for this grand occasion as were the players of Lahore Garrison.
At the conclusion of the competition, PGF President Lt Gen M Hilal Hussain, along with Brig Nayyar and Asad IA Khan, Justice Abid Aziz and Dr Asma Shami, handed over the champion team trophy to Garrison Golf Team along with a winning cheque of Rs one million.
