THIS year’s Kenya Junior Matchplay Championship yesterday received a major boost today when Kingway Tyres Limited presented event organisers, Junior Golf Foundation (JGF) with a cheque of Sh150, 000 for the world amateur golf ranking tournament.
The event will be held at the Sigona Golf Club between August 13 and 16.
“The youth of today need to be given the support and attention to excel in all aspects of their lives. Sporting activities like golf helps to develop the children all-round in becoming better leaders” said Aashit Shah the New CEO of Kingsway Tyres.
He added: “We aim to support JGF this year and in the next few years sponsoring Junior Golf tournaments across the country which will encourage Junior golfers from all Golf clubs to participate and compete.”
Kenya Golf Union (KGU) chairman Francis Okwara lauded the sponsors for their gestures and urged more companies to emulate the effort.
Okwara said the future of golf in the country is through Junior Golf Development and noted that an intensive program of partnership had been started aimed at taking the sport to another level.

“On behalf of the Kenya Golf Union and the Kenya Ladies Golf Union who are parent bodies of Junior Golf Foundation, I would like to thank Kingsway Tyres Ltd for partnering with the Junior Golf Foundation
through the sponsorship of Junior Matchplay Championship to be held at Sigona on 13-16 August 2013.
He added: “In order to actualize our dream, the Union has made it possible for all juniors to access golf facilities by having an annual junior membership of Sh1,000. Through this, we have seen many junior
whose parents are not golfers enrolling for the membership. The membership allows them to access all golf courses in the country by paying a nominal fee of Sh 100.”
Okwara appealed to the Clubs to have a strong junior development base and to partner with schools around their courses so as to demystify the game. maillotdefootpaschers maillotdefootpaschers
