Kenya Golf Guide

A cardie gives a thumbs up during today’s round of Savannah Classic Golf at Karen Club.


With the inaugural Kenya Savannah Classic golf championships set to go to the wire on Friday, golf enthusiasts have a chance to enjoy the blow by blow final day action thanks to DSTV Kenya who will bring all the action live from Karen Country Club on their channel 233.

Despite the fact that spectators have been barred from the venue because of the COVID-19 pandemic, lovers will miss nothing in the action packed final day.

South Africa’s Justin Harding is on the brink of securing back-to-back titles after being crowned Kenya Open champion last week as he carried a three shot lead into the final day, but a host of opponents are breathing on his neck and it would be interesting to see if he will be able to resist the challenge.

DStv, which has the exclusive pay television rights, is giving Kenyan golf followers access to watch the inaugural Kenya Savannah Classic event at the comfort of their homes, at their favourite popular joints, or stream live on the DStv App.

While announcing the channel number and bouquet, MultiChoice Kenya Managing Director, Nancy Matimu said: “We are proud that Kenya is hosting this edition of the European Tour for which DStv has the exclusive pay television rights. Our mission is to deliver value to our customers by making great entertainment more accessible. We find and develop the right mix of content and deliver it to Kenyans anytime, anywhere. You can either catch the action from the comfort of your house or anywhere else via the DStv Now app.’’

Since international golfing activities were allowed in mid-2020, all events have been played under strict adherence of the COVID-19 restrictions. Such events are played as closed events with very limited number of players and their caddies allowed.

This is the case with Kenya Savannah Classic. Only the players and their caddies and a limited number of officials all of whom must be in the bubble will be allowed at Karen, hence most of the Kenyan golf following can only rely on the live screening of the matches. “We want to assure Kenyan golf followers that they do not have to worry about not being at Karen as we will transmit to them wherever they will be’’ added Nancy.
