It provides them with a platform to showcase their skills and exposes them to multiple opportunities to compete on a global scale. We, therefore, look forward to this tournament hoping to see some great golfing display by our juniors.”

On her part, Nelly Wainaina, NCBA’s Group Director of Marketing,  Communication, and Citizenship, said…. “We are excited to be a part of this first leg of the 2023 Interschool Golf Tournament and to witness families come together and spend quality time on the golf course.
