Kenya Golf Guide


After coming close on his debut as a professional golfer during last year’s KCB Golf Tour grand finale at Nyali Golf Club, Greg Snow finally realised his dream at the weekend when he won the second leg of this year’s tour at the par 71 Muthaiga Golf Club and he plans to maintain the same form in the remaining legs.

Snow, a former golfer of the year who just turned professional seven months ago, produced a stunning performance to win the second leg of the Tour after firing one under on the final day for an overall score of nine under par 275 after the four rounds.

He led the entire pack from the first round to the final day, hitting 69 in the first two rounds before finishing four under par 67 on the third day.

In the first nine, he was all par besides hitting a bogey on the second, third, seventh and eighth holes while in the second nine, he hit a birdie on the 10th hole and registered albatross on holes 13 and 16 to eventually walk home with the winner’s price of Sh198, 000.

John Kagiri was second after firing four under par 280 while Mumias pro Dismas Indiza was third on two under par 282. They walked home with Sh145, 000 and Sh109, 000 respectively.

Thika pro Simon Ngige who won the Tour’s first leg at the Thika Golf Club last month and the champion of the KCB East African Golf Tour 2010 finished in a disappointing ninth overall position on seven over par 291.

The Muthaiga round attracted participants from Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Rwanda.

Others who emerged in the top 10 were Nicholas Rokoine (283) David Wakhu (288), David Odhiambo (289), Ali Kimani (290), H. Thethy (290), Simon Ngige (291), Richard Ainley (291).
