UP FOR GRABS: Toyota Kenya Chairman Amb. Dennis Awuori revs the brand new Prado to be won in at the Kenya Open Hole-in-One competition.


Golfers participating in the forthcoming Barclays Kenya Open Golf tournament will just be a swing away from owning prestigious expensive vehicle scheduled for Karen Golf and Country Club.

A motor vehicle distributor has placed an incentive to entice the golfers to attempt the giant killing feat of the hole out in one of the forthcoming Barclays Kenya Open Golf tournament scheduled for on February 13-17 in Nairobi.

Toyota Kenya has put at stake a Toyota Prado TXL valued at 2.5 million up for grabs for the first professional player to hole out in one at the fifth hole.

During the championship at Muthaiga Golf Club the hole in one was at the 13th hole.

At Karen, Toyota Kenya was given an option of either the fifth or 13th hole for the motor firm to settle on the fifth hole which is 200 yards from the pin.

“Our reason for settling for the fifth hole because it is picturesque. The hole and the fairway are new coupled with its water features,” explained Toyota Kenya chairman Ambasadeur Dennis Awori during the presentation of the vehicle to the Kenya Open Golf Limited, yesterday.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the company is sponsoring the championship by putting a vehicle at stake.
The championship which is the oldest championship of the Golfers Association (PGA) European tour, since its inception in 1967 no golfer has managed to achieve the hole out in one to prove as a tall order.
Vehicle distributing firms like CMC Motors and DT Dobie offering attractive car prizes in kind to include prestigious vehicles like Mercedes and Land Rover Discovery but to no avail.
Awori challenged golfers to attempt the challenge as stand to smile all the way to the car’s steering wheel and will forever cherish the moment.
He was optimistic that given the quality of the vehicle golfers will not leg go the opportunity of owning the car.

“I have been able to achieve a hole in one at Karen Golf and Country Club twice in my life at the 16th hole and from experience am sure that can be achieved,” he said.
On presentation, Awori said the sponsorship was an opportunity for Toyota to be aligned with the biggest golfing event in the East Africa region.
The Kenya Open Golf Limited (KOGL) sponsorship director Dr Samson Ndegwa said they were delighted to welcome Toyota on board and confirm their commitment of staging a world class event.
“We hope to see one of our local players not only leave the Karen Club with the championship, but hopefully he will do so in a brand new Toyota Prado TXL,” said Ndegwa. nike air max nike air max
