IIM Shillong has been hosting its flagship event “The IIM Shillong Golf Cup” since 2009, which has grown to reach new heights since its launch. After its inception in 2012, the IIM Shillong Amateur Golf Club (IIMSAGC) took it up as its mission to increase the interest of students, the faculty members, and the administrative staff in the game of Golf and make the IIM Shillong Golf Cup a bigger success in the successive years.
In addition to holding regular practice sessions for the students, the Golf Club, along with the Student Council of IIM Shillong, was responsible this year for the organization of the annual Golf Cup. Golf Cup Season 9, which was an even bigger success than its predecessors, saw several corporate houses taking part in the event, along with many dignitaries from the Government of Meghalaya and the Armed Forces, all of whom categorically appreciated the hard work put in by the Club to make the event smooth and tension-free.
IIMSAGC also became the first club in any Indian B-school institute to host practice sessions within their premises, a feat that was made possible by the able guidance of the Chairman of the Club, Shri Sunshine Marbaniang.
Looking to the near future, among the many things that are currently in the pipeline, the Club plans to host the Fourth edition of “Anubhav” - an intra-college golfing tournament and “Paganica”- an online golf event for participants of all B-schools across India, as well as many smaller pre-events. The previous edition of ‘Anubhav’ saw some real talent display by the students of IIM Shillong, and was full of fun and follow-throughs on the course.
In addition, this year the club is planning to execute a miniature golfing tournament within the premises of the Institute so as to give the faculty and students yet another reason to pick up the golf clubs and take their best swing forward.
It also hopes to move outside the bounds of the Institute and involve more local institutes and local golfers so as to meet its ultimate aim of the proliferation of the love and spirit of the game amongst the students of the institute.
All in all, IIMSAGC has come a long way from its humble beginning, and it continues to strive to reach new heights by way of promoting the sport of golf among the B-school participants.
With a view to connect top corporate professionals, esteemed government officials, local figureheads, and professional golf players with the management academia in a leisurely setting, IIM Shillong hosts its flagship event with the help of IIM Shillong Amateur Golf Club and the Student Council on the scenic Shillong Golf Course, known to be one of the few natural golf courses in Asia. IIM Shillong is the first and only Indian B -School to host its own Golf Invitational Tournament with the first edition convened in the year 2009.
Anubhav is an intra-college golf tournament conducted by IIMSAGC to introduce Golf as a sport to the students of IIM Shillong. This provides the opportunity to learn and compete with fellow participants in various events such as putting, chipping and stroke play.
With the intent to involve the students actively in the sports of Golf, the Golf club has planned to start a miniature Golf tournament within the IIM Shillong campus. This would help the students in appreciating the nuances of putting and chipping as well as the importance of accuracy in this beautiful game. It will instills a strong connect between the game and the picturesque campus that we are blessed with.
To increase the awareness about the sport of golf within the B-school student’s fraternity, IIM Shillong Amateur Golf club organizes annual golf quiz event comprising of two rounds: first round being a general golf quiz and the second round which varies year on year so as to increase the interest towards this corporate sport.
Golf training sessions are conducted at the Shillong Golf Course for interested participants of IIM Shillong throughout the year. The students, often under the supervision of a professional instructor, undergo basic training on how to play golf. The practice session involves training on swinging, teeing, putting, chipping and various tricks essential for playing golf.
