How it came about?

The BORBHAG Cup has been instituted with the goal of encouraging the game of Golf in Northeast India. The Tournament is the effort by a group of Golfers from the North East in their continued quest to popularise the game in the region. In fact, the seeds of this very Cup were sown by a budding young golfer from Assam.

Golf - as all know, is one of the new events in the Olympics now and with the right kind of intention and zeal budding golfers from the North East can emerge as top professional golfers of the country.


Blending heritage with the modern world, our mission is to strengthen traditions and a spirit of camaraderie. This effort has been with a view to build on the potential of sports to contribute to socio economic progress as well as infrastructure development and community building.

The Inaugural Tournament

In its Inaugural Year, The BORBHAG Cup, was played at Misa Polo Club, Nagaon, Assam on 3rd January 2021, bringing together 88 Golfers from 7 Clubs of the North East region. Golfers represented the General Public, Armed Forces as well as Tea Planters. The event received resounding support and recognition as an important step in encouraging the game, bringing visibility to the potential of the region.

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented Arnold Palmer
