The Barclays Golf Circuit makes a second stop in Kiambu County, this time at the par 72 Thika Golf Club course on Saturday. The inaugural tourney that was hosted in Limuru in July.

The tourney comes two weeks after a successful tour in the Lakeside city of Kisumu where home boy Ramesh Karia playing off handicap 15 posted 38 stableford points to lead a group of 12 qualifiers from Nyanza, Kakamega, Nandi, Kericho and Kisii to next year’s Barclays Kenya Open golf tourney.

The sixth series of the Barclays Golf circuit is expected to attract over 140 players drawn from the host club and a sizable number from neighboring clubs like Ruiru and Kiambu.

Thika captain, Patrick Gakuo said: “As a club we are proud to host the Barclays Golf circuit because it is a tourney that provides a platform for our members to not only compete and network with their industry peers but also ensure that they are involved in supporting noble causes in our communities.”

He added: “The course is currently in good condition though the greens are slightly dry due to the prevailing weather condition.”

Barclays is working with Kenya Golf Union to raise resources throughout the circuit that will go towards supporting charitable initiatives that enhance the livelihoods of communities through financial literacy, enterprise skills and life skills.

Commenting on the weekend tourney, Barclays Bank of Kenya Managing Director Jeremy Awori said, “The pro-am is a dream for any amateur Golfer where they get an opportunity to play with top European professionals that grace the Barclays Kenya Open. Courtesy of Barclays Hospitality, they will also all get season tickets and VIP guest passes to the Barclays Hospitality Tent at the 2014 Barclays Kenya Open.”

From Thika, the action will move to Sigona Country Club on October 26 to be followed with Nyali Golf Club on November 9 before coming to Windsor Golf County Club on November 22 for the Barclays CSR Golf. The grand finale will be in Karen Golf Club on February 22.
