LAHORE - In line with the schedule set out in the Annual Golf Calendar, the 39th Millat Tractors Governors Cup Golf Tournament will be played and contested at the Lahore Gymkhana Golf Course from September 15 to 18. 

This was stated by Sarmad Nadeem, Convenor Golf in a press conference attended and addressed by Syed Irfan Aqeel, CEO Millat Tractors, Raza Saeed, Tournament Director, Ayesha Hamid Ladies Captain, Mrs Bela Azam, Imran Ayub of Millat and Khawaja Pervaiz Saeed. 

Sarmad Nadeem highlighted that the holding of this golf championship represents high spirited news and uplifts the mood of golf players all over the country, in particular the masterly golf players who seek honors through stirring performances that promote and upgrade their names as golf contenders of standing and merit. 

Syed Irfan Aqeel said importance of Millat Tractors Governors Cup Golf Tournament can be gauged from the fact that it is being sponsored by Millat Tractors for the 39th time in succession and for this, recognition is due to Mr Sikandar Mustafa Khan, Chairman of Millat Group. 

Khawaja Pervaiz said over the years, golf has developed and progressed in Lahore. Golf clubs like Royal Palm, Lahore Garrison Greens, Defence Raya and Lahore Gymkhana itself have been instrumental in producing adroit and dexterous golfers and Lahore now boasts of having over hundred amateur golf players with a single handicap. 

Raza Saeed, Tournament Director, said while the Lahori golfers are determined to come out triumphant in this championship, the golf players who come from other stations are also considerably intent on meeting the challenge of competition. 

But one thing that needs to be emphasized is that even if they do not win, they relish the experience of playing at the historic Lahore Gymkhana Golf Course. 

The main trophy will be awarded to the champion with the best net score. The defending champion is Hassan Sami Ud Din. Mohsen Zafar has won the title three times while Javed S Lodhi has won it two times. The prize distribution ceremony will be held at 5:30 pm on Sunday, where Governor Punjab has consented to be the chief guest.
