Held at the Uganda Golf Course (UGC), Kitante on Saturday, the monthly tournament is sponsored by Stanbic Bank Uganda, the anchor subsidiary of Stanbic Uganda Holdings Limited.

Speaking shortly before awarding mugs to the winners, Arthur Kiwanuka, the Head of Affluent Banking at Stanbic Bank said, “The numbers today were very encouraging and we hope this spirit continues. As Stanbic, we shall continue sponsoring the game as long as people continue to play.”

He reiterated the need to comprehensively support the development of sports in the country.
“As Stanbic, we are driven by our slogan; Uganda is our home, we drive her growth. We are committed to supporting the development of sports in the country. We call upon other stakeholders to join us and ensure that we collectively support and boost the development of talent which we hope will also make the tournaments much more interesting,” Kiwanuka said.
