Kenya’s most coveted amateur tournament, the Tannahill Shield golf competition will on Thursday January 11 received a new title sponsor, Dasani, who are making a comeback in the tournament after two year’s absence.
This year’s tournament will be held between March 29 and April 1. It will be the first major golf tournament after the Kenya Open Golf
Championship and the General Elections.
Dasani has been greatly involved in golf in recent years and their decision to return as the title sponsors of Tannahill Shield after a
short break, going by the company’s commitment in developing the sport, witnessed through the organization of the annual Dasani Golf Gala.
The Tannahill Shield, better known as Easter Tournament, is acknowledged as the premier team competition in Kenyan Golf and
Muthaiga are the reigning champions winning four titles in a row.
The tournament was inaugurated in February 1924 as an annual event when the General Committee of Nairobi Golf Club invited teams
representing Mombasa, Nyeri, Kiambu, Nakuru and Muthaiga to participate in the Tournament.  Every club plays one match against
each of the other clubs, eight players a side and the format was four ball better ball match play. Since then the format has been changed to foursomes match play.  Nine clubs now participate in the tournament on round Robin basis. pandora bijoux pas cher pandora bijoux pas cher
