Bobby Macharia lines his putt during the Dasani Golf Gala at Eldoret Club last week where he won the guest prize. Action now moves to Nyanza Golf Club.


The nine-hole Nyanza Golf Club plays host to this weekend’s qualifying round of the 2012 Dasani Golf Gala. 100 players have signed up to play in the one day event slated for Saturday 18 August 2012. Up for grabs are eight slots to the grand finale slated for Saturday 29 September 2012 at the Karen Country Club.

Shedding more light on the state of the course ahead of Saturday’s action, Hillary Osodo, the club captain said, ” The course is in perfect condition following some short rains in the recent past, thus ready to host our sister clubs – Mumias and Kakamega – who have continued to support all golfing events at our club, a relationship cemented over the years and which we do not take for granted.”

“For the visitors, this is also the opportunity to explore what our city has to offer, the traditional delicacy – fish – on top of the list,” he added.

Some of the players to watch out for at this round include Shabanji Opuka, E.K. Owinyi and T. Staussi.
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. sacsmichaelofficiel sacsmichaelofficiel
