The Omega Golf Trophy was held on 26 January 2019 at the Royal Colombo Golf Club.
Golf is closely aligned with the brand’s philosophy. Omega is a long-standing partner of golfing events such as the PGA Championship, the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Omega European Masters in Crans Montana. The Omega Trophy is its own exclusive tournament licensed only to trusted partners around the world. In 2017, for example, only 6 countries qualified to play the trophy on their home turf and 970 participants vied for the title with seven box challenge winners emerging from the pack. The winners from tournaments at the Royal Colombo Golf Club will travel to Crans Montana to witness and potentially compete in the Omega Trophy Grand Final.
A total of 46 teams, each consisting of three players participated in the tournament. The tournament consisted of two rounds of two teams playing in the format of a shotgun start 3-man scramble. This affords each golfer on the team the chance to hit a drive (a long-distance shot played from the tee box), have their results compared, and repeat the process until the ball is holed for one team score. The tournament was followed by cocktails, alongside the announcement of winners.
