Ahnaf Hassan is a well-known face at the Army Golf Club. He started learning the game in the beginning of 2016. Within a short time he won a number of trophies in junior group. But due to his O’ level exams, he stayed away from the game for almost a year. Now with the exams over, he has started playing golf again.
