Indus Golf Association is a private non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to promoting the game of golf within the DFW community and is a member of Texas Golf Association
We organize golf events that cater to the “Beginner”, casual golfer as well as the “Scratch” amateur. As a member of the Texas Golf Association, all Indus Golf members are eligible to participate in locally sanctioned United States Golf Association (USGA) amateur tournaments. In the coming year, Indus Golf plans to organize events to introduce the game to juniors and provide lessons to those who would like to learn the game.
Indus Golf undertakes several efforts to serve the local community including charitable donations to First Tee of Dallas and other worthy local causes. In the coming years we plan to continue our mission to pursue volunteer opportunities in the community, raise funds for the Ike Sekhon Memorial scholarship fund with the First Tee of Dallas and continue to support worthy efforts that benefit the community.
In April of 2000, Mr. Iqbal (Ike) Singh Sekhon, a patriarch of the Indian community in Dallas and a founding member and first President of the India Association of North Texas, being an avid golfer, invited a few of his golfing friends to play in a golf ‘tournament’ held at Chase Oaks Golf Club in Plano, Texas. A second event was held in the fall called the ‘Iron Ike’ at Ridgeview Ranch Golf Club in Plano and Indus Golf Association was born.
Two events were held up until 2006. That year, Indus Golf organized by electing a committee, passing by laws and starting a golf league with six events annually. Serving the golf community in the DFW area, Indus Golf encourages competition, camaraderie and charity.
In 2011, Indus Golf Association became a 501(c)(3) Non Profit. In 2012, Indus Golf became a member of The Texas Golf Association.
Ike Sekhon passed away in June 2006. The Iron Ike Memorial Tournament was established in his name and is played in October every year in his honor. The Ike Sekhon Memorial Scholarship with The First Tee of Dallas was established in 2015.
