Part of action in previous KCB golf event


The 7th leg of the KCB East Africa Golf Tour will be held at the par 72 Thika Sports Club this coming weekend.

Action is set to tee off at 6:30 am as over 100 golfers from around Kiambu County and its environs take on the lush fairways at the Thika-based facility.

Before taking a two-week break following the 2023 WRC Safari Rally, the golf series had graced Nyanza Golf Club where Riaroh and her team of David Sate, Joyce Osike and Tabitha Ojwang’ emerged overall team winners to book a slot in the grand finale.

KCB Group CEO Paul Russo said: “We are delighted to host the 7th leg of the KCB East Africa Golf Tour at the Thika Sports Club this weekend. I know the majority of golfers could not wait for the two-week break to come to an end for them to participate in the competitive tournament. We are expecting golfers to compete at the highest level, and it will be interesting to see who will emerge the top winners and seal a spot in the grand finale.”

Just like the previous legs of the tour, two top teams will be battling for the top two spots to book their qualifications for the grand finale slated for November at the Karen Country Club.

The main tournament will take place on Saturday while the juniors’ and ladies’ clinics will take place on Sunday, July 9th at the same venue.

So far, the series has reached over 600 participants and over 300 juniors in the juniors’ clinics that are scheduled for Sundays alongside the ladies’ clinics.

“Our aim is to improve the sport not only in Kenya but also the greater East African region. We also want to give kids and women who are enthusiastic about golf an opportunity to learn and upscale through our golf clinics,” noted Mr. Russo.

After the Thika edition, action will head to Nyeri Golf Club on July 22nd, 2023, for its 8th leg.
