The 9th annual Christel House Charity Golf Tournament presented by Swagelok in association with Bio-Gen, at Prestige Golfshire, Bangalore saw 96 golfers tee off to collect funds to support education of impoverished children in Bangalore. 

The tournament which once again presented a cheque of Rs 50 lacs to Christel House has been recognised as one of the best charity golf events in the world and the two winners each year are invited to play in the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Cup International Charity Golf World Finals in London. The trip includes a round at the private golf course of the Royal Household inside the grounds of  Windsor Castle and a black tie sit down champagne dinner with a member of the Royal Family in the Windsor Castle ballroom.
