After Coast tour, Dasani golf returns to Nairobi
After Coast tour, Dasani golf returns to Nairobi
M.Nderi takes a shot/File pictureAfter a two week sojourn on the Kenyan coast, with qualifying rounds at the Nyali Golf Club and the Leisure Lodge Resort, the 2012 Dasani Golf Gala returns to the capital, Nairobi, for the eighth qualifying round at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club on Saturday 14 July 2012.
Slightly over 200 golfers will be in contention for the eight qualifying slots to the Grand Finale on Saturday 29 September at the Karen Golf and Country Club available from this round.
Darshan Mistry, the Club Captain said, "Royal Nairobi Golf Club looks forward to hosting the Dasani Golf Gala this weekend. Despite the cold weather, the course is in good conditions. The fairways are quite harsh and the roughs tough but playable. The greens are holding up well and playing reasonably quick."
"Generally the course is playing fair and the opportunity for a good score is in reach for all handicaps. We have six of our juniors playing. Masters Mogere and Kimosop showing good form during the last weekend junior open. Thank you Dasani and good luck to all as they fight for two slots in the grand finale," he added.
It is worth noting that this qualifying round has six juniors playing, and they could just as well spring a surprise, and there is sufficient reason to back this up.
Judging by the results from the last two qualifiers, which produced lady qualifiers from Nyali and also saw an all caddies team book their Grand Finale berth during last weekend's qualifier at Leisure Lodge, we should brace ourselves for more intriguing results from Royal as the Grand Finale, with its Grand Prize, an all expenses paid tour for the winning team to witness the final of the European Tour's "Road to Dubai" looms on the horizon.
This is good enough motivation for a great qualifying round at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club.
