And with 6 tournaments on both calendars remaining to the Grand Final at Windsor on March 26, stakes are high for all and sundry in Kiambu where Governor William Kabogo is anticipated to play. 

The overall winner at the nine hole Kiambu course walks away with two return tickets to visit any KQ destination within the African continent.
