The Dasani Golf Gala heads to the North Rift, where Eldoret Golf Club will play host to the thirteenth qualifying round on Saturday 11 August 2012, with the top two teams booking berths to the Grand Finale slated for Saturday 29 September 2012 at the Karen Country Club. A total of 92 players are expected to compete in this qualifier.

Vice Captain Tom Mutei says, “The Eldoret Golf Course is a par 71 course which is now well maintained. It has been playing very well. The course is also quite scenic and players have to cross River Sosiani four times with the risk of losing a few golf balls to the river."
He added, "The weather in Eldoret has been good though a bit cold and wet, but going by what we have witnessed this week we expect good weather on Saturday. We also don’t expect any flooding on the course as the rains have subsided and drainage has also been greatly improved with quite a number of teams drawn from Eldoret Club, Kitale club and Nandi bears club fighting to qualify.

Mutei singled out a few teams whom he expects to make a push for the two qualification slots available from this round, saying, "here will be a tough battle between the top teams and the ones to watch are the ones comprising of,James Waweru, George Njoroge, Jeremiah Kayago and Tom Mutei. They will fight it out against  Anand Lakhari, Ravi Shar, Parit Sangrjka and Neel Shah. We also expect the team of David Kimutai, Moses Tanui, J.Kibosia and A.Chelongoi to be in contention.

Grand Prize The winning team of four players will be awarded with a commemorative trophy, The Dasani Cup, which shall be displayed at their home club during their reign as champions. They will also earn the opportunity to travel to Dubai to attend the Grand Finale of the European Tour, the DP World Tour Championships at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. While in Dubai, they will also have the opportunity to see Europe’s top 60 money earners on the 2012 Order of Merit battle it out for a 1.3 million winner’s cheque.

In addition, they will play at some of the best golf courses in the region, including the Dubai Creek Course and the challenging Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club, a course designed by former world number 1 and six-time major Champion Sir Nick Faldo.
