The host captain, Raymond Keter said ““Hole eight will likely tilt the table especially to the guest golfers- the locals who have been playing on this course might capitalize on the complexity of the hole. However, the course is in good form and those who will tee off early stand a better chance as the weather is quite unpredictable”.
