About The Tournament
For the fifth consecutive year, GCB Bank PLC returns to the Royal Golf Club, Kumasi to solely sponsor the prestigious Tournament of Champions and crown the Male and Female Golfers of the Year.
The GCB Tournament of Champions is reserved for only the winners of all competitions that took place at the club in the year. It is therefore a show of who is the best among the winners and brings out the very best golfers at the club.
It is therefore the hope and aspiration of all golfers at the club to qualify for the tournament. The event also welcomes other golfers but in a supporting role to compete among themselves.
The list of qualifiers includes the top five (5) ranked male golfers in Ghana by the World Amateur Ranking System. The Royal Golf Club, the host, is currently ranked the No.1 golf course in Ghana.
Last year, top Ghanaian golfer Mr Bismark Ntiedu Dapaa was crowned the winner.
