Nations Trust Bank and RCGC Unite for 5-Year Golf Extravaganza


Nations Trust Bank and the Royal Colombo Golf Club (RCGC) have joined hands in a new partnership that will span five years. This collaboration aims to support and enhance golf tournaments organized by RCGC, including the monthly medal round showcasing talented young players.

The Royal Colombo Golf Club, with a rich heritage of 144 years and counting, plans to continue hosting tournaments for young golfers, nurturing their skills for potential future representation of the country. The Nations Trust Golf Championship is one such tournament that will persist under this partnership.

The primary goal of this collaboration is to bring together passionate golf players, providing them with opportunities to participate in competitive tournaments. This includes members of RCGC who are also Nations Trust Bank customers, such as Corporate Banking and Commercial Banking customers, American Express Card members, Private Banking Members, and FriMi customers.

Sanjaya Senarath, Chief Marketing Officer of Nations Trust Bank, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “We engaged with RCGC in response to the positive feedback we received from the golfing community following the tournament we hosted early this year. This partnership will allow us to offer an enjoyable experience to our customers and guests, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership. We also hope to introduce tournaments for juniors as well.”

The partnership aims to create an enjoyable experience for both professional and amateur golf players. According to Rohitha Silva, the captain of RCGC, the tournaments will feature attractive trophies and prizes across various categories, including men’s and women’s events, as well as Masters and Senior categories.

Special awards, such as Longest Drive at the 8th hole, closest to Pin at the 13th hole, the Nations Trust Bank Winner, and Overall Winner of the Tournament, will add excitement to the events.

In addition, Nations Trust Bank will host a separate junior golf tournament, aligning with the Royal Colombo Golf Club’s junior golf development program. This initiative aims to nurture young talent, paving the way for them to represent Sri Lanka in the future, as highlighted by Rohitha Silva. The collaboration between Nations Trust Bank and RCGC is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of golf in Sri Lanka.
