“We would like to thank you for the overwhelming participation with 171 golfers registered today. I would also like to commend the participation of the junior golfers who took the course today,” said Njonjo.

He added: “As you might be aware, through the Gala, we are supporting Junior Golf development to the tune of Ksh 300,000. In addition junior golfers participating in the gala this year are equally eligible for the grand prize. We believe this is one of the ways to nurture their interest in the sport.”

This year, the winning team at Karen will be rewarded with a memorable golfing trip abroad. They will travel to Dubai in November to attend the Grand Finale of the European Tour, the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates all courtesy of Dasani.

The 2012 DP World Tour Championship will feature the players in positions 1 to 60 in The Race to Dubai. There they will get to see the crème de la crème of pro Golfers like Rory McIlroy, Rose Justin, Molinari Francesco, Ernie Els, Luke Donald & Lee Westwood – all of whom among the top 10 on the current Leader board. The 60 will be battling it out for a $ 1.3 Million winner’s cheque.

Dasani will also give the winners a bonus experience. While in Dubai, they will have the opportunity to play at some of the best golf courses in the region, which have in the past played host to leading players and tournaments. nike huarache femme pas cher nike huarache femme pas cher
