Nyali's challenging course to host the Safaricom Golf Tour's eighth round

Nyali has proven to be a challenging course owing to the coastal winds blowing from the Indian Ocean that can quite literally turn the tide of a game (pun intended) and this will certainly make for a very entertaining tour at the Kenyan coast.

The Nyali Golf and Country Club plays host to the eighth round of the Safaricom Golf Tour on the weekend of 21st and 22nd May.

The 18 hole course at Nyali sits on a 150 acre parcel of land that was once a sisal plantation.

It opened its doors to the public in 1956, initially as a 9 hole course before being upgraded to an 18 hole course in 1980.

Nyali has proven to be a challenging course owing to the coastal winds blowing from the Indian Ocean that can quite literally turn the tide of a game (pun intended) and this will certainly make for a very entertaining tour at the Kenyan coast.

It will definitely give competitors a glimpse of what to expect when the grand finale takes place at Vipingo Ridge, also on the Kenyan coast in August.

The Safaricom Golf Tour has already made seven stops in Nanyuki, Limuru, Muthaiga, Nyanza, Machakos, Eldoret and Karen as it seeks to demystify the game of golf which has long been seen as a sport for the elite, and position it as one that is accessible for all.

Just as has been the norm at all previous rounds, there will be a corporate day, junior golf day, caddies golf day and golf clinics.

The stop in Nyali will definitely be one worth following.
