For a registration fee of Rs 2000/-, all of the proceeds going to charity, the participants shall compete against each other in various categories from senior to junior to grab the top spot, with the winner bagging a trophy, a free helicopter ride, and a travel package worth Rs 300,000.

“It was 1992 when I first met him. He came to the Royal Nepal Golf Club when I was a member there. I was already the national champion back then hence he asked me to teach him to play as he was just starting out. He was learning from a few other pros as well but the bond we developed through golf was something more. We have played together for a long time ever since.” says Deepak Acaharya, Nepal’s leading Professional Golfer.

“He loved the sport, was very humble, and wanted the youth to enjoy the game as much as he did. He always found a way to help people whether that be financially or by leading them in the right direction; hence in memory of this noble-hearted passionate man, we decided to organise this Golf tournament. It is not only a golf tournament but an homage to a great man, ” Acharya concludes.
