Tuesday, 03rd August 2010: The Oman Air Golf Open 2010, organized by the Victoria Golf and Country Resort and sponsored by Oman Air will be held at the Victoria golf course on the 11th and 12th of September 2010. With over twenty golfers from overseas having confirmed their entrance and entries pouring in from local golfers as well, the tournament is set to be action-packed.
Some of the events that will be worked off in both the ladies and gents categories include: gross championships, nearest to the pin and longest driver.
Oman Air’s Country Manager for Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Mr. Gihan Karunaratne said, “This is the 2nd year we are supporting the Golf Open at the Victoria Golf and Country Resort and we are optimistic that this year’s tournament will be yet another success. We are quite keen to promote Sri Lanka as a golfing holiday destination, and this is just one step in that direction.”
Last year’s Golf Championship, sponsored by Oman Air had a large number of foreign and local golfers participating.
Rated as one of the top 10 golf courses in the world, the picturesque Victoria golf course was designed in 1997 by Donald Steel & Company, an internationally acclaimed golf course architect.
