The 10th qualifying round of the 2012 Dasani Golf Gala takes place on Saturday 28 July 2012 at the Karen Country Club, which will incidentally host the Grand Finale in slightly over two months time.

The par 72 course will offer a perfect opportunity for players to master the course before the finale,that is, if they manage to earn qualification, notwithstanding the fact that the pins and other features of the course would likely be have been changed come the finale. All in all, this is round should serve as a dress rehearsal for the host club, event organizers and potential qualifiers.
The  winning team at September’s Grand Finale will travel to Dubai to attend the final of the European Tour’s “Race to Dubai” – the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates.
While in Dubai, they will 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 6-time Major Champion Sir. Nick Faldo.

Back to more pressing matters and a field of 160 players will be in contention for the eight slots availaible from this qualification round to September’s Grand Finale where they will face off with 76 other qualifiers who earned their berths after the first nine rounds played Kiambu, Thika, Vet Lab, Windsor, Railway, Nyali, Leisure Lodge, Royal and Nakuru respectively from late May to date.
Karen’s Country Club’s Golf Administrator Irene Wangari pointed out the teams to watch, noting that the team comprising of Kenya Open Golf Limited Chairman Peter Kanyago, Kingori Kariuki, Irungu Wanyoike and John Muiruri looked sharp enough to emerge victorious. She said said, ” Other teams expected to spice up theday will be the team comprising of Kenya Rugby Union chairman Mwangi Muthee who is also a serious golfer, Henry Maina, Amos Ngonjo and Jimmy Kimondo.”
Now in its third edition, the Dasani Golf Gala was started in 2010 with the intention of taking the game to a wider playing base, fusing accomplished players with those wishing to pick up the game. This has played a major role in helping the aspirations of both sets of players, all driven by the strong desire to realize their potential and chart their own path. nike air max 2017 nike air max 2017
