Absa Bank Uganda on Thursday announced its sponsorship of the 2023 edition of the Captain’s Bell tournament at the Uganda Golf Club to the tune of Shs.133 million.
The Captain’s Bell Tournament is an annual event hosted by the Uganda Golf Club, where the newly elected captain hosts members in a tournament and unveils his new committee at the beginning of his term in office.
The new committee is led by Captain Emmanuel Wamala who has been re-elected and his Vice-Captain Paul Fitzgerald Nuwagaba.
The Managing Director of Absa Bank Mumba Kalifungwa says the support will help to support the development of the game of golf in Uganda.
“This sponsorship is another opportunity for us to demonstrate our deep sense of respect for the game of golf. Over the years we have continued to demonstrate this respect by constantly adding value to the game in Uganda which has seen it grow,” Kalifungwa said.
The tournament will kick off on May 20, 2023, at the Uganda Golf Club.
