Building Indian Golf and Changing Lives

Since the year 2000, The Golf Foundation (TGF) has supported more than 700 underprivileged talented young Indian golfers. It has helped them realise their dreams and changed their lives in the process.  

Many have made an enduring mark in National and International golf and continue to excel in the sport. 

TGF is committed to continuing its mission and seeks your help in realising it.


The Golf Foundation (TGF)

Set up in the year 2000, TGF supports talented young golfers from underprivileged backgrounds. A Registered Charitable Society, TGF strongly believes that India can produce National and International golf champions through supporting golf talent from weaker sections of society. A belief that has been proven to be right time and again.

The Genesis

The Golf Foundation was born out of an idea. In the early nineties, a young boy Ashok Kumar was caddying for Amit Luthra. Amit saw that he had immense golf talent but no means to take his game forward. Amit – himself a multiple-times National Golf Champion, Asian Games Gold Medallist and Arjuna Awardee – decided to help him with money, equipment, playing rights and most important, encouragement. The rest is history – Ashok turned pro and went on to become one of India’s most successful professional golfers. He recorded 18 professional wins, including being the PGAI & PGTI (Professional Golf Tour of India) Order of Merit winner in 2003/4 and 2006/7.
