This is the culmination of a nation-wide hunt with the help of Sahara group for the best corporate golfing talent. Sahara India Pariwar presented The Economic Times Leaders Challenge Tour in association with Chevrolet Captiva teed off in Bangalore and traversed through Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai where the cream of India's Corporate Inc battled it out to secure the final berth. While the theme was to enjoy, the competitive spirit of these decision makers was quite apparent.

Played in a unique format, as many as four golfers from each venue qualified for the final that included the individual winners and runners-up of the 0-17 handicap category and 18 & above handicap category, respectively. Some of the prominent names are Shashank Sinha, president - international business, Godrej Consumer Products, Dinesh Vaswani, MD, Acuitas Capital Advisors, Anjani Mandal, CEO, Manipal Group, Pradeep Bajoria, MD, IFGL Refractories, Suresh Kumar Kheria, MD, Farinni Leather, Nitin Bhatia, MD, Facet Construction Eng.

In each of the zonal rounds, top decision makers also got an opportunity to mingle with some of the elite list of celebrities. Donald's Trump's famous words were "all major business decisions are taken on a golf course". The Economic Times Leaders Challenge Golf Tour was thus conceptualized keeping this very quote in mind which is appreciated by Sahara Group. The Sahara India Pariwar Sponcered the event because it provides a platform for leading corporate lords to meet and interact on one platform, not just to compete in a world-class golf tournament but also to further help progress the economy as such.

The Grand Finals will be played on single Peoria system of handicapping. The winners of the grand finale are set to be pampered with prizes ranging from a brand new Chevrolet Captiva, a luxury car from the stable of GM for the individual winner to exquisite watches from Federique Constant and TaylorMade golf sets.
