Nisha Sadekar and Play Golf Designs, Inc.
Say hello to golfer and businesswoman Nisha Sadekar.
Nisha is a native of Toronto who played collegiately at the University of Missouri and professionally on the Futures Tour. These days, she spends much of her time in her role as President and CEO of Play Golf Designs, Inc. (If every CEO was such a hottie, I'd have a subscription to Forbes.)
Play Golf Designs (PGD) is a Las Vegas company that provides golf outings and management services to individuals, companies, corporations and charitable organizations at golf courses around Vegas. It's a player-run organization that selects touring golf professionals to promote themselves and their golf talents through outings and events. Ashley Prange of "Big Break" fame is the director of player development for PGD.
How does it work? Let's say your company is having its annual meeting in Las Vegas, and wants to set up a pro-am for its employees and clients. Nisha and Play Golf Designs will arrange and manage the event, including the participation of professional golfers who have LPGA Tour, Ladies European Tour, Futures Tour or other professional golf tour experience.
Aree Song, Anna Rawson, Candy Hanneman, and "Big Break" players Ashley Gomes, Bridget Dwyer, Sarah Lynn Johnston and Jeanne Cho are among those golfers who work with Play Golf Designs. And, of course, there's Nisha herself, and the aforementioned Ashley Prange. Not to mention our pal Tina Miller.
But PGD's services aren't just limited to group outings. Any individual golfer who is headed to Las Vegas can set up a round of golf with a female touring professional at a top Las Vegas course. Want to meet Prange or Song for lunch in the clubhouse, then 18 holes of golf? Check with Play Golf Designs in advance of your Vegas trip and you might be able to arrange it (bookings are subject to a player's availability, of course).
You can learn more about Play Golf Designs on the company's Web site. And I'll be working with Nisha over the coming months as we feature more Play Golf Designs golfers (and hopefully, more of Ms. Sadekar).
