The Prestige Masters Series 2018 is half way through the qualifiers, with 3 highly enjoyable rounds completed and another 3 to come before the Series Finals in November.
We have identified 30 finalists from the three rounds played so far. They will be joined by another 30 over the next three months, and the field will be set for the grand finale to be played in November.
The pre-monsoon showers and the early onset of the monsoons brought with them heavy winds – posing a formidable challenge to the competitors. The Golfers who participated have also enjoyed the testing pin positions we used across the rounds.
The tournament, conceived in 2015 as an effort to encourage competitive amateur golf in the region, has now become a fixture in the Indian golfing calendar, attracting participation from across the country and overseas too.
The winners of previous editions are Sonam Chugh, Sumeru Bahuguna and Naveen Wahi. Sonam had also won the World Corporate Golf Challenge in 2015, and turned Pro shortly after the Prestige Masters Series win.
There is of course the coveted, custom-designed series trophy to aspire to. The winner and runner- up of each qualifying round also receive trophies and for those who missed out on the top two spots, there are vouchers and prizes in form of lucky draw prizes. However, we believe that the main attraction for golfers from all over is the sheer joy of pitting their skills against other amateurs or professionals on a challenging and well-laid out course setup that ensure only the best on the day can come out with a good score.
The Prestige Masters Series has other elements to enhance the user experience – operations are entirely online, from registration to live updation of scores. Every round features a theme-based buffet for participants and the prizes include one for the best-dressed golfer of the day!
We launched the Prestige Golfshire Club Mobile App during the third round, allowing participants to register for tournaments from the Mobile and score the rounds while playing. The Live Leaderboard in the App lets participants as well as followers to track the scoring in real-time. If you would like to download the App for yourself, do visit the appropriate link amongst these two –
