Kenya Golf Guide

Today’s cheque presentation.


Hemingways Holdings yesterday announced their sponsorship partnership for the 48th Edition of the Annual Kenya Open Golf Tournament. The tournament, which will take place at the Karen Golf Club, on the 17th-20th March, will host 156 professional golfers from Europe, America, Asia and parts of Africa, including local golf professionals and amateurs. Of the 156 players, 22 are local, 11 from other African countries and 117 are internationals.

In a month’s time, players will be teeing off at the Barclays Kenya Open and the European Challenge Tour will have taken its first step on the Road to Oman 2016. The Kenya Open is part of the European Challenge Tour that includes 28 tournaments in 22 different countries.

Speaking on Thursday during a meeting at Hemingways Nairobi in Karen, the group’s CEO said that the Kenya Open is a great marketing tool that will shine the spotlight on Kenya as a professional golfing destination in Africa.

By offering our sponsorship to Kenya Open Golf limited we believe we are part of the long term future of Professional Golf in this country. Events such as the Kenya Open are wonderful showcases for Destination Kenya and what this spectacular country and its people have to offer international tourists and business travellers,” said Mr. Alastair Addison, CEO, Hemingways Holdings Ltd.

Speaking at the same event, Barclays Kenya Open Golf LTD Chairman, Mr. Peter Kanyago, said that this year’s Barclays’ sponsored Kenya Open Tournament held a lot of promise for aspiring golfing professionals in Kenya and the rest of the world. The tournament has attracted worldwide representation from top golf professionals, but is yet to produce a winner from Kenya.  Last year, 20 year old Haydn Porteous from Johannesburg won the Kenyan series of the European tour.

There a number of golf players from Kenya who we are rallying behind to win this tournament. We hope that this time round, a Kenyan gets to take the trophy home at the end of the tournament,” said Mr. Kanyago.

Mr. Kanyago expressed delight to partner with Hemingways Holdings LTD as accommodation sponsors for the 48th edition of the Kenya Open Tournament.

We are delighted to partner with Hemingways Holdings LTD, a hotel and luxury group which is a leader in the hospitality and service industry in Kenya. We are sure that the tournament will play a key role in promoting tourism and hotels like Hemingways will provide exceptional service to tournament officials.”

H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta, Former President Mwai Kibaki and Sports, Culture and Arts Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario and Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala will grace this year’s Barclays Kenya Open Tournament.
