CaptainS cup 2015 at RCGC

Ancient Golfing nation-a Re Birth


Balls have evolved, clubs have evolved, teaching methods have evolved. Equipment assisting practice has evolved with a promise of sending the  ball to target-Statistically the accuracy of an average Golfer has not increased over decades and more .WHY?
 Ball getting target rest inside the mind. If one has it, then it can be polished – for best state only by self-pushed by relentless desire

We at Damaru Golf Sri Lanka  chapter salute  the captain who tirelessly worked for the cub to make a  little better in the best possible way he could .All voluntarily  done.What his name??? It does not matter the name he did all of that???within 12 months


Damaru Golf Sri Lanka Chapter

We saw new Paves - We saw  new TifEagle greens  finishing 18 the hole.There was more life in the premises.

We heard from the membership -"we expect the new regime to give us finley demarcated Bunkers, Hazard,Greens, Green fringes and even roughs-  Of course fairways that allow  slim dollar bill divots."
We also experience some new life at the cub with new events. So the members have a reason come to the club ,mingle with fellow members.
Expectation of the memberships
No so good looking bunkers-change

lovely bunkers -defined well

lines well defined



Now the final event of the year -- the captains cup.Well done to the winners and Thank you to all participants he probably said-

day one result
