An uproar has emerged in the local golfing fraternity after the publication of rules and regulations for this year’s Limuru Open Golf Championships to be held at the Limuru Golf and Country Club between July 2 and July 3.

The 54-hole competition which is part of the Golfer Of The Year (GOTY) series, requires all participants to have a handicap to qualify for playing, effectively locking up majority of the caddies who are considered as some of the best amateur players in the country but do not have handicaps for lack of being paid up members of a golf club.

“Each player is responsible for playing off his correct handicap. Handicap certificates must be emailed to Limuru Country Club by Monday, June 29, 2016 and any player who will not have presented his handicap certificate will not be allowed to participate in the event,” read a statement co-signed by the club captain Kevin Muchiri and resident professional James Ngigi.

The statement added: “The event is open to amateur golfers with a maximum handicap of 12 and under, cut off is subject to entries. The entry fees is Ksh1,500.”

The statement also goes on to says that in case of a tie on the 54-hole KGU Goty event, the winner will be determined by a sudden death play-off on holes 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 and repeated until a winner is identified.

In the event of a tie on the 54-holes nett competition, the winner shall be decided through the best second round nett in the same, best first round nett in the same, the last nine, six, three or 18 holes, factoring handicaps and if still there is a tie, then the winner shall be decided at the toss of a coin. cheap air max cheap air max
