Jaipur Airport Hotel Announces a Successful Lt Gen. Himmat Singh Memorial Golf Tournament Was Held in Pink City

5-Star Hotel in Jaipur Supported a Golf Tournament to Promote Growing Golf Talent

JAIPUR, INDIA--(Marketwire - Mar 30, 2012) - Jaipur Marriott, one of the luxury hotels in Jaipur, India, along with Vodafone and Mahindra World City, announced a Lt Gen. Himmat Singh Memorial two day golf tournament was held on March 24th and March 25th in our very own Pink City with approximately 150 new generation golfers participating.

Jaipur Marriott, Vodafone and Mahindra World City proudly extended their philanthropic arm with the focus to support sports locally in Pink City, a city where travelers can enjoy golf, shops, and restaurants in Jaipur, India. With an aim to create a world with no boundaries, the spectators and the players were granted access to once in a lifetime experience. The recognized official Golf body, Rambagh Golf Club has joined hands to promote golf talent in Jaipur. If there is one sport where business and leisure goes hand-in-hand, golf has got it all, encapsulating the corporate India.

At a time when sportspersons are your best brand ambassadors, it makes sense to support a sport where several home-bred golfers are consistently making their mark in international tournaments. Pankaj Birla, General Manager of the five star hotel in Jaipur, who himself is an avid golfer says, "I can't think of any other sporting event that can possibly add more inspiration, enjoyment and camaraderie. We are privileged to be the hospitality partner and to facilitate the winners of the Golf Tournament by delivering unsurpassed level of hospitality. Golf has truly managed to establish its footprints across the world. The two day extravaganza encouraged sportsmen spirit & provided a competitive edge away from the daily hum drum routine."

Jaipur Marriott Hotel also plans to develop sponsorship marketing for select alternate sports targeted at the youth market with the long term view to back sports in the city. This convention center hotel in Jaipur will support these sponsorships that will in turn provide innovative brand building opportunities and encouraging burgeoning sports talent. Golf tourism is a multibillion dollar industry and India, despite being a late entrant, could become a significant niche player in this golf tourism market.
