Kenya Airways Golf Safari Kiambu's invite.


The par 72 nine holes Kiambu Golf Club tomorrow plays host to the ongoing Kenya Airways Golf Safari where a large field of about 160 players are expected to rub shoulders.

The event with the theme ‘Fly and Drive’ will see competitors battle for different honours and a ticket to the grand finals in Nairobi next month.

This year’s Kenya Airways Golf Safari was sponsored to a tune of Sh15, 000 million and will have witnessed 35 rounds by the time of the grand final, 24 events more than the previous events where the series was only played over 11 rounds.

The third edition of the event has also for the first time witnessed the series go out of the continent as two events are planned for Bangkok, Thailand and Guanzhou, China, where the flight goes to.

Other countries that the tournament visited are Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana, Cote D’Ivore, Senegal, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Sechelles, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania.

During the tournament, the airline has been offering packages that tour operators can use to promote Kenya as a super golf destination.
