Our effort is to break the ongoing myth of the game being too financially demanding for a common man to take it up. It was an honour to work with Mr. Sohail Khan on 'Freaky Ali'. A movie based on Golf in India was never thought of. I am indeed grateful to him for showcasing our passion on the silver screen. We hope that this movie will bring awareness in the public and make golf the next big sport in India"

The company provides two kinds of services: facilitation services and management services. To this end, Golfing Nation brought World Long Drive Championship to India for the first time ever and has provided Bollywood Consultation Services for 'Freaky Ali' to ensure that the movie could depict the sport as accurately as possible.
