Kakamega Sports Club is set to play host to the 2023 NCBA Golf Series this Saturday, 10th June 2023. The fifth edition of the series will witness the participation of at least 150 golfers from Kakamega and neighbouring clubs, including Nyanza Golf Club. The Series returns to Kakamega this year as a qualifier. This qualifier will be happening at the backdrop of the 1 year anniversary customer engagement scheduled for today Friday the 9th of June.

The winners of the overall gross, Men’s category, Women’s category, and Juniors category will earn their place to compete in the Grand Finale.

The event follows the successful fourth leg held on May 25th at Thika Sports Club, which attracted an impressive field of 256 golfers. David Matano emerged as the overall winner, triumphing over a strong field of competitors. Simon Ndung’u secured victory in the Men’s category, while Naomi Kimata claimed the title of top Lady golfer. Garcia Kimemia emerged as the champion among the juniors. These four outstanding golfers earned their qualification for the series’ grand finale scheduled for December.

The NCBA Golf Series not only seeks to promote the sport of golf throughout the East African region but also aims to foster a stronger connection between NCBA Bank and its customers through their shared love for the game. This year’s edition consists of a total of 17 club qualifier events hosted at various golf clubs in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda.

So far, the Series has enjoyed successful tournaments at the Railway Golf Club, Limuru Country Club, and Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club, and Thika Sports Club. Additionally, the Series includes two junior tournaments, with the first one having taken place in Uganda in March and the upcoming one scheduled for the Nyali Golf Club in November.

Speaking ahead of the Kakamega event, NCBA Deputy Director & Group Head of Brands said: “We are thrilled to bring the 2023 NCBA Golf Series to Kakamega Sports Club, continuing our commitment to promoting the sport of golf and strengthening our connection with golf enthusiasts across the region.
