Kenya Golf Guide

North Rift Athletics Kenya chairman Major Michael Rotich follows his swing during the second leg of Barclays Bank Golf Day in Eldoret in August.


A large field of 152 players will be action for the fourth leg of the on going Barclays Golf Circuit to be played at the par 72 nine hole Machakos Golf Club tomorrow.

The round which will bring together players from the host club and Moi Airbase Golf Club is expected to be mouth watering since only five slots will be up for grabs for the tournament’s grand finale to be held at Karen Club in February.

According to the club captain Charles Nzuki, holes seven and eight will prove to be quite a nut especially for the guest golfers and thus everyone should brace themselves for a long golfing day.

The course situated in the heart of Machakos is known for its indigenous grass filled fairways dominated by more ‘browns’ than ‘greens’.

Although the course has been prepared well for the circuit, the greens are likely to be fast due to the weather, Nzuki explained, however we have put everything in place to ensure that both our members and the visiting golfers have a savanna golfing experience.

Course administrator Jason Mulwa said the winds are currently calm and the greens are a bit slow.

With the qualifying rounds coming thick and fast, twenty players have already booked their tickets to the ultimate Barclays Kenya Open slated for February next year.

According to Barclays Kenya Managing Director Jeremy Awori, the tourney aims at supporting the development of the game of golf in Kenya, as well as raising funds that go towards supporting charitable initiatives that enhance the livelihoods of communities through financial literacy, enterprise skills and life skills.

A total of 25 clubs will be participating in the countrywide tourney with fifteen of them hosting the circuit rounds. So far, Limuru ,Eldoret and Nakuru Clubs have hosted the first, secondand third rounds respectively.
