Overview of the Hero Women’s Indian Open
The ninth edition of the Hero Women’s Indian Open was hosted at Gary Player’s new state of the art ‘Black Knight’ golf course at DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurgaon, returning to the venue after a two year hiatus. The course was widely considered amongst the most challenging but scenically beautiful courses in the world and particularly the par-4 17th hole! The 114 competitors from 35 countries were playing for a purse of 400,000 US Dollars – the biggest ever prize money in women’s golf in India. The tournament provided a platform to help develop the skills and talents of the young generation of Indian golfers who will look to make their mark on the LET in 2016 and beyond.
