We got a trainer. We got clubs / golf balls. We got the holes installed and numbered. We got the flags. And we planned for other features too.
We will get a video on a TV screen in the demonstration centre. A trainer will be available. Anyone can try one round at an introductory offer of Rs 50. Golf ball and club will be given free initially. Time: 12 noon- 4 pm on all days except Monday when Eco Park is closed. More features will be added gradually. For any qureies regarding participation, please contact Mr Partha Ghosh, Curator Eco Park at 98361-09962
Based on postings here and on Facebook where I'd indicated an email, I got several queries. One them, Mr Arun Majumdar, an IT professional and a citizen of Australia, actually came at 12 noon today at the putting course. I requested him to be a member of an Advisory Committee on Golf at Eco Park.
Others present today were Neil Law (Golpher) and his little daughter, Khokan (Golfer, trainer), Partha Sarathi Ghosh (Curator), Suman Neogy (GM Hidco) and Biswajit Paul (Correspondent)
