Diponegoro University (Undip) once again made a proud achievement in the field of sports. This achievement was reached by Diponegoro Golf Community (DGC) together with BSO Golf Undip and Dipo Golfers, who succeeded in winning the first session of Intercollegiate Golf Series (IGS) event, at Damai Indah Golf-PIK Course, on Sunday (21/11).

The Undip team managed to win in the team and individual categories in this event. In the team category, Undip won 2nd Runner up Nett. As for the individual category, Undip managed to place  4 students to the winner’s podium.

The four Undip students who won this trophy were Nadya Fitri Maharani (Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Science 2021) in the Best Nett Overall Ladies category; Rykho Rizky Babul Khoir Harahap (Faculty of Law 2020) in the Best Nett 1 Flight A category; Darendra Setiawan Hartono (Faculty of Engineering 2020) in the Best Nett 1 Flight B category; and Akbar Hidayat (Faculty of Economics and Business 2018) in the Best Gross Flight B category.

These achievements cannot be separated from the hard work of training and careful preparation by the team. “For preparation, our Dipo Golfers team has conducted routine training twice a week and golf together every month. For the competing teams, we provide more time for training, in order to show the best skills for Undip,” said the Head of Dipo Golfers, Arya Tri Putranto when contacted by the PR team, on Wednesday (24/11).

Arya added that the Dipo Golfers team is ready to be projected to participate in golf tournaments that will be held later. “Dipo Golfers strives for the best in every tournament, we are ready to send the best teams to compete, to make Undip proud in the world of sports, especially golf,” said Arya.

Dipo Golfers itself was formed on April 11th 2021. This community became one of the Semi Autonomous Units in Undip which was formed based on the needs and dreams of Undip to accommodate and develop the potential of Undip students who like to play golf, both for those who are advanced and who want to learn to explore the sport of golf.
