“I am delighted to be first to win Veg-Delight Ball Pool in 2017. Despite the weather affecting our plays this period, I think as golfers we need not to give in to weather.”
Veg-Delight proprietor, Makhecha Tarang said the Ball Pool was one way of giving back and recognizing the support golfers give to his company.
“As a golfer myself, we regard ourselves- golfers- as family. It is the very same golfers who are customers of Veg-Delight and as one way of appreciating their support, we decided to sponsor this Ball Pool,” explained Tarang.
He pledged to make their golf sponsorship regular.
