By Frank Phiri, correspondent

The 2022 Blantyre edition of Standard Bank Be More Golf returns to Blantyre Sports Club with a medal format golf tournament teeing off this morning.

The prize presentation ceremony is scheduled for Sunday evening.


Standard Bank Chief Executive Phillip Madinga said the two-day tournament reaffirms Standard Bank’s continued commitment towards development of sports in the country.

“This competition comes under the auspices of Solar Financing Facility, a product that is providing easy access to alternative energy in a quest to mitigate the energy challenges the country is facing. As a bank with a long affiliation to golf both locally and regionally, we are proud of our contribution towards development of the sport through tournaments such as the Standard Bank Be More Golf.

“As such, we will always be a golf advocate because the game remains a professional sport that Malawian players across the country enjoy,” Madinga said.


He said Standard Bank touts the growth of golf in the country, saying the multifaceted sport provides a good platform for business sustainability and growth.

“As a corporate brand, golf presents a great platform where we interact with our clients and partners to better understand their needs as well as getting feedback on our offerings. It is through such engagements that we gain insights that enable us to align to their needs, therefore facilitating growth and productivity,” Madinga said.

He said through the tournament, the bank is also taking its solar financing facility to its bankable golfers to help them become more productive amid the current energy hiccups.

“Malawi is our home and we believe in making a positive contribution towards national development. We remain confident that renewable energy will drive our nation’s growth. This golf tournament is extraordinary as it is in partnership with one of our renewable energy partners-265 Energy.

“Through this partnership, we want to provide affordable renewable energy to our clients; more so now with the energy crisis we are currently facing,” Madinga said.

He said they are making the facility available to individuals and companies, allowing them to purchase and import renewable energy supplies based on their needs.
