The tournament, taking place for only the second time in two decades, was revived last year after a lapse of 18 years, with Altair taking on the mantle of Principal Sponsor.

Welcoming Altair’s decision to reprise its role this year, the Captain of the Royal Colombo Golf Club (RCGC) Mr Avancka Herat announced that more than 100 golfers competed in stroke play format over the four days of the tournament, with the best 30 golfers advancing to the final two days.

According to the RCGC, top contenders for this year’s Open included Sri Lanka’s veteran golfers such as Mithun Perera, Anura Rohana, K. Prabagaran and defending champion N. Thangaraja, currently ranked no 1 in the tournament.
