HSBC Premier celebrates the month of September by focusing on the fascinating Far East, coinciding with the exclusive HSBC Premier Golf tournament which heads back to the cool climes of Nuwaraeliya for the sixth season that is scheduled to take place on 14 and 15 September.

With 100 HSBC Premier Customers who are all seasoned golfers expected to tee off at the picturesque Nuwaraeliya Golf Club and compete for the HSBC Premier Challenge Trophy, the tournament offers two overall category winners the chance to be part of the WGC – HSBC Champions tournament held at the Sheshan International Golf course in Shanghai from 25-28 October which attracts over 30 of the top 50 golfers in the world.

This year, HSBC offers its Premier customers whether a Golfer or not, the opportunity to celebrate with great deals and experience the magnificent Far East throughout September. Customers can fly to Shanghai where the action happens or any destination around the world on Cathay Pacific and get an exclusive 20% off on bookings. The booking period is valid until 30 November and the travel period is upto February 2019.   

HSBC Premier Customers get to experience a touch of far eastern hospitality right here in Sri Lanka with 50% discounts on B/B at Shangri-La Golf Resort & Spa Hambantota until 30 September.

The HSBC Premier Golfer who is able to reach nearest to the object that is lit up in the dark, will be the winner. This will no doubt be an exciting and memorable day for participants and a good warm up before the event on 15 September. 

HSBC Premier Customers traveling to Nuwaraeliya for the tournament will be able to enjoy a 50% saving during breakfast, lunch and dinner at Ambepussa Rest House as well as enjoy a 50% saving on accommodation at the Grand Hotel.

We look forward to an exciting tournament where two winners get to travel to Shanghai and witness world class golf at the HSBC WGC tournament which is one of the four World Golf Championship events held annually. This year we wanted to celebrate the experience with all HSBC Premier customers who are non-Golfers too and get them to experience the Far East through exclusive offers. We hope our customers will truly enjoy the experience here in Sri Lanka as much as the two deserving HSBC Premier Golf overall winners.”
