Junior golfer Hindocha JNR tees off during the 7th leg of the Barclays Golf Circuit at Sigona Golf Club. Action moves to Nyali tomorrow.


The par 71 Nyali Golf and Copuntry Club will on Saturday host the eight leg of the ongoing Barclays Golf Circuit where a field of 160 players is expected to take part.

According to the club’s resident professional Kopan Timbe, players should expect a tough round going by the tough conditions at the course at the moment, but he promised fans a thrilling and memorable round.

“The course is currently playing very tough especially after we prepared it in readiness of Nyali Open nest month. It will be playing long and the rough has not been trimmed so it will be a no go zone for the players,” said Timbe.

He added: “We are currently experiencing rains, so the fairway is in a great condition, but the winds are very strong and the greens are fast.”

The day long event will bring together players from home club Nyali, Leisure Lodge, Vipingo Ridge, Mombasa Club, Malindi Golf Club and Watamu Bay to battle it out for the limited tickets for the Circuit’s grand finale to the held at the Karen Golf and Country Club in February.
Saturday’s event comes two weeks after a successful tour of Sigona where home player Naveed Nanji beat a large field of 209 players to emerge the men winner on 39 points and lead a group of six qualifiers to the grand finale.

The overall winner during the grand finale will land a fully paid golfing tour on the expansive golf courses in South Africa, while the top 20 at the finale will get slots to play at next year’s Barclays Kenya Open Golf Pro Am.
From Nyali, the action will move to Windsor Golf and Country Club on November 23 to be followed with Nyeri Golf Club on November 30. The grand finale will be in Karen Golf Club on February 22. nike air max trainers nike air max trainers
