Jorhat Gymkhana Club, 1876

The All Assam Inter Club Golf Tournament is a blending of heritage with the modern world as we come together to build bridges, strengthening our tradition and spirit of comradery. Golf is a coming together of people across regions and it is in this endeavour that we are hosting the Inaugural All Assam Inter Club Golf Tournament: The BORBHAG Cup.

The Tournament is an effort by a dedicated group of golfers in their continued quest to popularise the game in the region.

The All Assam Inter Club Golf Tournament will be held alternatively at Misa Polo Club and Jorhat Gymkhana Club. The idea behind holding the tournament alternatively at Misa Polo Club (1888) and Jorhat Gymkhana Club (1876) is to encourage budding golfers of these areas to take up the game as a way of life.

The Clubs are already making an effort in this regard with Jorhat Gymkhana Club (JGC) having a coach to train new golfers. JGC also intends to open a Gold Academy with the help of ONGC.

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.

The custodian of the trophy is Jorhat Gymkhana Club (JGC) and we intent to expand the tournament to a two-day affair from next year (to be hosted at JGC), subject to the support of all golf loving sportsperson – an indication of which will be noticed in this year’s inaugural tournament.

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
