Previously, there was only the Sri Lanka Open which showcased the talent of the caddies who learnt and practiced golf entirely in their spare time. The family company of Pin Fernando, UTE, took over the sponsorship of this event from 2017. UTE has also recently become a Strategic Partner of Sri Lanka Golf.
