The KCB East Africa Golf Tour will this weekend head to Western Kenya at the Par -72 Kakamega Golf Club.

Over 150 golfers are expected to take part in the 5th leg of the competition that tees off on Saturday 6:30 AM as the region’s golfers search the slot for the Grande finale in November.

It is expected to be a lush experience on the greens for golfers especially after an extensive rains period in the past few weeks, “We are honoured to host the 5th leg of the KCB East Africa Golf Tour this Saturday. The event has drawn a lot of interest from golf enthusiasts. The course is in great shape, especially after the rains we have received in the last couple of weeks which should provide an exciting challenge to the players.” Says Kakamega Golf Club Captain James Anzabwa.

In addition to the amateur series, this leg will see two golf clinics hosted on Sunday targeting ladies and junior golfers with over 300 new participants having already taken part in the opening legs at Vetlab, Eldoret, Limuru and Railways golf clubs.

 


Speaking ahead of the event, KCB Group Director Marketing and Communications, Rosalind Gichuru said, “We are excited to head to Western Kenya for the 5th leg of the KCB East Africa Golf tour, at the Kakamega Golf Club. We look forward to crowning the fourth set of teams who will play at the grand finale, later in the year.”

The team of Joseph Kagicha, Francis Kimanzi, Ibrahim Lande, and Azu Ogola returned a combined score of 99 points, to claim the overall title at the fourth leg of the KCB East Africa Golf Tour, played at the Kenya Railway Golf Club.
