Help support our cause champions raise funds for golf course workers across the country. These people have not been able to earn for more than half a year due to lockdowns enforced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

About the Cause Champions

Trishul Chinnappa, Pranavi URS, Neha Tripathi, Viraj Madappa and Chikkarangappa S are International golfers. They train at several golf courses including Zion Hills Golf County in Kolar, Yayachamraja Wadiyar Golf Club in Mysore and Eagleton Golf Resort, Bengaluru.

About the Cause

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been widespread. In India, almost all sporting activity has been disrupted thus affecting those people whose livelihoods rely on sports. Through the four cause champions, we have identified around 100 workers at several golf courses across the country who are in need of financial support. 

Due to the current situation, they have struggled to find work as the golf courses have been temporarily closed and golfers have not been training. This cause aims to raise funds for those workers and their families, to support and sustain them through this time of need. Every rupee contributed goes a long way in supporting these people who have devoted their lives to golf. We aim to raise Rs. 10 Lakhs to support these workers and their families through this tough period through a one-time grant of Rs. 10,000.

Intended Beneficiaries

Through this initiative, we are aiming to support around 100 daily wagers who work at the golf courses. They work on the courses as caddies, performing various roles such as cleaning balls, pulling carts, carrying golf bags and other jobs. For many years, they have supported several top golfers in India and ensure the smooth running of competitions and training sessions.  

They have been silent contributors to the sport for years and now it is time for us to support and assist them through these difficult times so they can continue to be a part of the golf ecosystem post-pandemic.

All funds raised will be distributed directly to the verified bank accounts of the identified beneficiaries.

Come join our team and help us support those who play an extremely crucial role in shaping the future of Golf n India. Come #PlayForIndia.
