Nelius Kariuki & Irene Maina are all smiles during the third leg of the Dasani Golf Gala held at the Vet Lab Club two weeks ago. The Gala action will this weekend be at the Railway Golf Club.


The nine-hole Railway Golf Club will be playing host to the fifth leg of the ongoing Dasani Golf Gala on Saturday where a field of 140 players has been attracted to battle it out for the top honours.

Only the best two teams of eight players each will earn a ticket to the Grand Finale slated for Karen Golf and Country Club on September 29. So far 32 players have already qualified for the Grand Finale through the first four legs held in Kiambu, Thika, Vet Lab and Windsor respectively.

According to Railway Club’s golf administrator John Wangai Chege, the course is in good condition for the event following the April- May rains and the greens have been well maintained.

“We expect about 140 golfers including on form junior player Samwel Ndonga  who plays off handicap 12,” said Chege.

Among the top contenders set to spice up the tournament and also favoured to reign supreme include national team player and last year’s winner C. J. Wangai who will combine with D. Njuguna, K. N. Mburu and Dr.J. Karanja.

The club captain, Norbert Wabwire will combine with Alfred Nandwa, R. Omanyo and Frank Ombura to form another strong team while Giginder Padam and Abbas Nasser also last year’s winners will combine with Dickson Kaburi and Hasmin Hasnail.

This year, the grand prize will see the winning team of four players travel to Dubai to attend the Grand Finale of the European Tour, the DP World Tour Championships at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. While in Dubai, they will also have the opportunity to see Europe’s top 60 money earners on the 2012 Order of Merit battle it out for a 1.3 million winner’s cheque.

In addition, they will play at some of the best golf courses in the region, including the Dubai Creek Course and the challenging Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club, a course designed by former world number 1 and six-time major Champion Sir Nick Faldo. nike air max 90 mujer nike air max 90 mujer
