Dhruv Shringi, Co-founder and CEO, Yatra.com, is not your regular iron-pumping gym freak. He keeps it stylish by indulging in golf. You can find him at Delhi Gold Club every Sunday, mastering his passion and also learning a trick or two from his son on the course.

When did you get a taste of the game?

About 10 years ago when I was in the UK, a friend initiated me into the sport, and it has stuck with me since then.

And now your son plays too…

I used to when I was young but not anymore.

Which is your favorite golf course?

It has to be Royal Springs Golf Course in Srinagar. It is one of the most picturesque backdrops with snowcapped mountains on one side and Dal Lake on the other.

Having kids does as you start thinking more about long-term, practical plans.
