The Omega Trophy Returns to the Colombo Golf Club

On Saturday 23 September, Chatham Luxury Watches brought The OMEGA Trophy back to the fairways of the Royal Colombo Golf Club (RCGC) for the 2 nd edition of the highly-anticipated competition. Both competitors and golf enthusiasts alike celebrated the tournament’s return to the rolling greens of the country - following a 4-year Covid hiatus - with a day filled with entertainment, camaraderie, and of course, top-tier competitive golf.

The Omega Trophy is an exclusive event that sets an aspirational benchmark with the aim of providing participants with a world-class experience in Sri Lanka and celebrates the long-standing partnership between Omega and Chatham Luxury. As the official agent for Omega in Sri Lanka, Chatham Luxury has a vested interest in promoting and supporting Omega’s vision in the country.

This year, a total of 138 participants took part in the OMEGA Trophy, making up 46 teams playing in the 3-person Texas scramble format. All teams were vying for top prize: an all-expenses-paid trip for the winning team of three to watch the OMEGA European Masters 2024 in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, with the added incentive of the opportunity to play at the 9-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course.

The tournament was divided into morning and afternoon sessions, with each session comprising of 23 teams vying for the coveted Omega Trophy. At the conclusion of the golfing activities the participants were hosted to celebratory cocktails in the evening along with the handing out of awards.

Eventually, the euphoric winning team comprised of Ranil Pathirana, Rathven de Livera and Suranga Palliaguruge. 1 st Runners up were Anusha Senadhira, Sachin de Silva and Sharon Fernando, and 2 nd Runners up were WAK Fernando, Mahela Jayawardane and Kapila Dandeniya. Additionally, the award for Longest Drive (Men) went to Mahela Jayawardane, and Longest Drive (Women) to Shyanika Fernanado.
