The thirteenth leg of the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival stops over at the Thika Golf Club this weekend with a field of over 200 players. This is after a successful tour in the Kenyan coast where lady golfer Silvana Franciolli handicap 17, was crowned the winner of the 11th leg of the held at the Malindi Golf and Country Club with 32 stableford points. The pair of Duncan Mitchell handicap 27 and Peter Driest handicap 20 scored a 46 point to top the Nyali Golf and Country Club twelfth leg of the tournament.

The Thika Golf Club event in the Tusker Malt’s Golf Carnival amateur golf series, which aims to advance the popularity of golf using the‘Four Ball Better Format’, has drawn players from the host club and a sizeable number from neighboring clubs like Ruiru, Makuyu, Kiambu and Muthaiga. The host Captain, Patrick Gakuo says that the format is good enoughfor amateur golfers. “When a high handicap golfer comes together to play with alow handicap golfer the performance tends to be always better in the four ball better format,” he says.

The earliest tee is at 7:30 and last tee off at 2pm. “This will enable us start the activities early and bring them to a close in good time for the presentation which is scheduled to start at 7:30pm,” says Captain Gakuo. He further asserts that the course is in good condition but is a little bit dry with the prevailing hot season. “With the dry weather, golfers should expect an easy time as the ball runs far,” says Gakuo. “However, they should ensure that they carry something to drink in the course as the hot weather can drain their energies,” he adds.

The Tusker Malt Golf Carnival is scheduled to visit 30 golf clubs and engage some 10, 000 golfers from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda in a regional tour aimed at promoting bonding and friendship, the brand value of Tusker Malt.

“As usual EABL and Tusker malt has never disappointed and the members are looking forward to this day on their golfing calendar. Tusker Malt visits have grown very popular in Thika and we are expecting a full house,” says Gakuo.

The actionwill then move to Karen Country Club on March 3 2012 andthe Royal Club follows on March 10, 2012. The Grand Finale of the Tusker MaltCarnival will be held in April 2011 at the Muthaiga Golf club. air max mujer air max mujer
