Captain's Profile

The Royal Golf Club is delighted to announce the selection of Sanjay Lal as the 2018 Gent’s Club Captain and Caroline T'Kint de Roodenbeke as the Lady Club Captain.

Sanjay grew up in Jaipur and Delhi, India.

As a Ladies Captain, she wishes to work closely with RGC management, members, Men’s Captain and Vice Captain.
