Golf by the lake, well, that is what the 18-hole course at the Nyanza Golf Club in Kisumu City has to offer.

Founded in 1936, it is one of the country’s oldest courses.

 It is definitely a scenic course, with views of Africa’s biggest lake, Victoria to accompany to the intriguing course that without a doubt brings out the best in many a golfer while enjoying nature at its finest.

It’s well maintained greens will this weekend play host to the fourth round of the Safaricom Golf Tour and without a doubt, create an opportunity for golfers within the region to showcase their skills.

The Safaricom Golf Tour is a platform that seeks to demystify the game which has long been seen as a sport for the elite, and position it as one that is accessible for all. The grand finale is set to take place in August in Vipingo.

We’ve already seen three previous rounds of the golf tour taking place in Nanyuki, Limuru and Muthaiga.

Cyprian Bundi and Marion Githinji were the top male and female golfers in Nanyuki before junior golfer Leo Gitonga triumphed in the men’s category in Limuru with Susan Koinange winning the women’s prize as Zain Manji and Lucy Njoroge took the top honors at Muthaiga two weeks ago.
