The July Monthly Medal Event is a highlight on the golfing calendar, attracting over 300 golfers from across the country. The event will be held over two days, culminating in an award ceremony on the second day. Sampath Bank’s involvement acknowledges its commitment to fostering customer satisfaction and providing exceptional experiences for its valued customers.

Participants in the event will enjoy a variety of activities, including a golf practice session with coaching, the main golf tournament, and an exclusive Cheese & Wine evening on the first day for Sampath Bank customers. Following the two-day tournament, there will be a grand award ceremony and a cocktail event to honour the winners. This initiative not only promotes golf but also provides a unique platform for high-net-worth individuals to engage in a distinguished social setting.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Tharaka Ranwala, Senior Deputy General Manager Marketing, Customer Care & Card Centre, said, “Sampath Bank has always been a strong supporter of all sports, though golf has traditionally been less highlighted, despite its popularity among elite and high-net-worth customers within the banking industry. Sponsoring this event aligns perfectly with our new vision and strategy, which emphasises a greater focus on corporate customers and high-net-worth individuals. Although this is our first partnership with the Royal Colombo Golf Club, we bring extensive experience from our previous collaborations with the Tamil Golf Association’s events in the UK and Canada.”

The event features an array of attractive gifts and awards for the winners, with the Overall Winner receiving two Business Class return air tickets to Dubai and the Longest Drive Winner receiving dinner vouchers from luxury hotels in Colombo, along with RCGC vouchers. The best player among Sampath Bank customers will win a hotel package from a five-star hotel, while the Closest to the Pin Winner will receive dinner vouchers and RCGC vouchers. Furthermore, three Division Winners will walk away with attractive cash prizes.

By sponsoring this event, Sampath Bank aims to enhance customer satisfaction and offer exceptional experiences for current and potential customers. This sponsorship highlights the bank’s commitment to delivering value and fostering strong community relationships with high-profile events.
