STANBIC Bank has pledged its commitment to the growth of golf in Zambia through exposing young payers and professionals to the sport.
Presenting a K100,000 cheque to Zambia Sugar Organising Committee chairman Roy Penney, Stanbic head of risk Jaulani Mtine said the bank was happy to support the Sunshine Tour that will be held in Zambia.
“We want to give back to the community…we believe in partnering with Zambia Sugar, Zambia Golf Union and the Lusaka Golf Club in supporting the tour that will come through…the Sunshine Tour. We want to ensure that we present the best of the international breed that is available to Southern Africa, expose our young players, professional and amateurs to the game,” said Mtine.
And Penny said part the money presented would go towards the junior programme that was in effect.
He said he was happy with the relationship between Zambia Sugar Open and Stanbic who had been associates for a long time.
Penny explained that so far he was sitting on 200 entries from both local and international participants.
He said unfortunately only 144 would be admitted for the event set to tee off on April 21.
The event will be beamed across the continent on SuperSport.
