Kandy’s Ahalya Rajan, who hails from a well-known sporting family, entered her name in the record books of golf by becoming the first lady golfer to pocket a double at the Donald Steel Golf Championship.
It was Ahalya who stole the limelight at this golf meet and became the first woman to clinch the double. She won both the Pam Fernando and Victoria Bowl trophies. Ahalya’s grandfather the late P.T. Rajan was the man who introduced hockey to Kandy.
This lady took to golf recently and her mother Jeewa, sister Gawri and uncle B.D.R. Suri Rajan gave her the much needed encouragement to play golf.
