Eric Mutuku playing off handicap 22 returned an impressive score of 41 points while lady winner Kezie Kihara off handicap 25 returned a score of 39 points to represent Limuru Golf and Country Club at the 2014/2015 Barclays Golf Circuit Grand Finale in March at the Karen Country Club.

Over 200 players signed up to participate at the tournament with an eye on clinching a slot at the upcoming Barclays Kenya Open scheduled for 7th-12th April 2015. The Limuru Golf Club Captain Mr. Sam Ndung’u was optimistic that Limuru will be well represented at the Kenya Open.

“Tournaments like the Barclays Golf Circuit have provided a perfect platform for our golfers to practice more ahead of this year’s Barclays Kenya Open, and I believe we shall be well represented this time,” said Mr. Ndung’u.

So far, 72 more players drawn from golf clubs from Nakuru, Machakos, Kitale, Nyanza, Sigona, Nanyuki, Thika, Nyali, Eldoret, Vet Lab, Karen and Royal Nairobi have qualified to participate in the Circuit’s Grand Finale to be held at the Karen Country Club on 28th March. The Kenya team to participate at the Barclays Kenya Open will be named at the Finale. The challenge, however, is for the country’s golfing best to increase their chances of winning in the Kenya Open.

Barclays Bank has invested over Ksh 85 million since 2012 to boost the profile of the sport in Kenya. The financial-services provider aims to reach over 2,800 youth in a bid to hone their golfing talent.

“One thing that has stood out throughout the 2014/2015 Circuit is the increased number of youth taking interest in golf. We have reached over 1,500 of them through the Circuit, and their participation has made it much more exciting. We believe that this sustained effort can push the number and quality of professional golfers and contribute towards building the talent in Kenya,” said Zahid Mustafa, Barclays Bank Consumer Banking Director.

Barclays is sponsoring the Barclays Kenya Open for the fifth year running and has helped raise the country’s global profile as one of the ideal golfing destinations in East Africa.
