Young Lankans golfers are in lucks way as DFCC Bank has recently agreed to take up the Joint Title Sponsorship of the 2017 Inter School Golf Tournament, conducted by the Royal Colombo Golf Club (RCGC). 

The MoU for sponsorship was recently signed between the DFCC Bank and the Royal Colombo Golf Club. 

The 2017 Inter School Golf Tournament will be held on December 16 at the Royal Colombo Golf Club for the fourth consecutive year. 

The tournament, which is being organised under a ‘Big Match’ theme will feature over 250 golfers from over 25 top schools in the island, including 5 Girls schools.
