Mineral Resources Development Company became the Daffodil Cup Champions, finishing ahead of 35 other teams. MRDC was followed by Kumul Petroleum Holdings.
 
Oil Search says that with the tremendous support of the business community, K117,060 was raised from team registration fees, an auction and raffle sales.
 
"Oil Search has been a passionate sponsor of the Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge since the event began in 2003. This makes it the 16th consecutive year that we have worked with the Cancer Foundation PNG in helping to reduce the threat and impact of cancer in PNG through successful education, prevention and clinical support," Oil Search GM for stakeholder engagement Leon Buskens said.
 
"All funds raised from the event will go towards bringing cancer education and awareness programs to various communities and schools throughout PNG in 2019," Buskens said.
 
Daffodil Corporate Golf Challenge also takes place Lae, where the inaugural event in Lae took place in 2011. Proceeds from that event go towards supporting the work of PNG Cancer Relief Society and the running of the National Cancer Treatment Centre at the Angau Memorial Hospital.
