KCB Group today renewed its sponsorship package for the KCB Golf Tour 2013 for the eighth consecutive year.

The bank has sponsored the six-leg tournament dubbed “KCB Advantage Banking Golf Tour 2013” to the tune of KShs 23million. The amount will be used to cover the cost of the overall organization of the tournament including its publicity, branding, activations, promotions and amateur prizes. The prize money for the competition will be KShs 6million.

“Today, we have renewed our support to professional golf in Kenya through the launch of the KCB Advantage Banking Golf Tour 2013 which has continued to nurture young talent and contribute to the development of the sport over the last seven years,” KCB Group CEO, Joshua Oigara said.

The championships have improved the standard of golf in the country and provided a competitive tournament environment for both professionals and amateurs added the Chief Executive.

There is an average of 40 professionals from all over the region participating in each KCB Advantage Banking Golf Tour. This demonstrates the growing popularity of the tour in the country and region.

“There will be six tournaments of four rounds each for professionals with amateurs playing in the final round of each event. The inaugural tournament will tee off on January 30th-February 2nd 2012 at the par 72 Royal Nairobi Golf Club,” said Oigara. T

The others will be held at the Nyanza Golf Club in April, Muthaiga Golf Club in May, Limuru Golf Club in June, Eldoret Golf Club in July and the Grand Finale will be hosted at Leisure Lodge Golf Club in Mombasa.

The top three amateur winners who must be KCB Advantage Banking customers from each of the six tournaments will battle it out at the Grand Finale in Mombasa.

The tour is named after the bank’s flagship product, KCB Advantage Banking – an exclusive banking service for customers with preference for personalized, convenient and comfortable banking services.

KCB Advantage Banking Golf Tour continues to attract top regional and continental golfers creating networking opportunities for golfers and business partners.

There were more than 22 golfers in last year’s KCB Order of Merit that have qualified for this year’s Kenya Open and are expected to do even better.

During the tour, professionals will undertake free coaching clinics for amateurs at the various clubs to help them improve their game while the organizers will conduct golfing clinics for the media in an effort to create better understanding of the game and enhance participation.

Over the years, the KCB Advantage Banking Golf Tour has grown to become the greatest showcase of golf in the region and continent. It is the Kenya’s premier golf championship modeled along the lines of the European and US PGA tours.

KCB has taken a leading role in the sponsorship of other sporting activities including the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) in partnership with the Kenya Motor Sports Federation; KCB Football Club, KCB Women Volley Team and the KCB Rugby Team. huarache noir huarache noir
