The Annual Gold Medal Golf Tournament which marks the 126th year in 2012 is scheduled in Nuwara Eliya Golf Club from 31 August to 2 September.

This will be a spectacular weekend in the hill-station with the participation of members of the Nuwara Eliya Golf Club and Royal Colombo Golf Club. As a leading commercial establishment in Sri Lanka, Harris Ceylon (Pvt.) Limited, proudly associates with this prestigious sporting event and its membership on this event.

The company sponsored the 125th Annual Gold Medal Tournament held in November 2011 which was a success with the participation of over 70 players. Harris Chairman Michael Dias made his early comments at the 2011 post event ceremony on a beginning of a long term partnership with Nuwara Eliya Golf Club and the Annual Gold Medal Golf Tournament. The commitment made was fulfilled when Sri Lanka’s premium brush and roller manufacturer, popularly known as ‘Harris Brushes’ in the market for almost 75 years continued sponsoring the event in 2012.

“The Gold Medal Golf Tournament will be tagged in our year plan and we have seen a tremendous emphasis on brand building as a complement to product perfection during last few years,” explained Harris Ceylon Director Lal Saranapala. He also stated, “The theme for this year’s event is ‘Using the right tool for a perfect finish’ with our premium brand the Harris Classic Brush with its signature Red and White tipped handle on display. “Like the game of golf when painting one’s home, the right brush can mean a world of difference to the finish.” Established in 1936, market leaders in paint brushes, Harris Ceylon has wished the ‘golfers’ a successful event with wonderful memories and a high degree of sportsmanship.
