Canada India Foundation organized its 3rd Annual Golf Tournament last Wednesday at the Royal Ontario Golf Club in Huron, ON.

Although the weather decided to play the spoilsport initially, the day turned out to be perfectly fine for golf enthusiasts who wouldn’t be cowered down even by the thunderstorm in the afternoon that threatened to end the tournament prematurely.

In the end, nothing came in the way of these golf enthusiasts, who made merry on the golf course, partaking in the choicest Indian delicacies and an exotic choice of beverages.

A young team comprising Curren Hola, Sanjay Agnihotri and Neel Patel won the tournament. The runners-up team comprised Ajay Tandon, Avtar and Janak Bhawnani.
