Bank of Valletta has signed a collaborative agreement with the Royal Malta Golf Club.
Through this agreement, Bank of Valletta is supporting the BOV Monthly Medal Competition, this being the most important monthly competition and is played off full handicap; the competition is divided into 3 divisions depending on the strength of the individual’s handicap. Furthermore, all competitions attract order of merit points and at the end of the year this is used as the basis on which the teams for Malta v The Rest are selected.
Malta vs The Rest is one of the most prestigious competitions on the RMGC Calendar. Established in 1973, the top 10 Maltese and top ten foreign players compete for this coveted prize. This year’s competition is being held between the 9th and the 11th September and will see The Rest trying to break Malta’s stronghold on this competition that they have won for the last nine consecutive years.
The agreement was signed by Victor Denaro, Chief Officer IT at Bank of Valletta and Guy Chamberlain, a member of the Royal Malta Golf Club.
“Through this agreement, Bank of Valletta is consolidating its position as the primary supporter of Malta’s sporting events,” said Mr Denaro. “Golf is a game that has seen a steady increase in popularity and attracts a healthy number of players from overseas.”
“The Royal Malta Golf Club is delighted that Bank of Valletta has extended its support to the Club,” said Guy Chamberlain. “The Bank’s support will be utilised to improve the standard of the golf course through the laying of new greens and tees as well as planting of trees which improve the overall experience at the Royal Malta Golf Club for its members and visitor.”
