Limuru Country Club will this Saturday 17th September 2022 play host to the ongoing 2022 NCBA Golf Series. This will be the thirteenth event in the tournament that kicked off in February this year.
Action at the par-72 golf club tees off early in the morning with the first group expected to take to the tee at 6:30 a.m.
Over 200 golfers are expected to take to the course with the aim of booking a spot in the grand finale, which will be held at the Muthaiga Golf Club on 9th December where the top four winners will enjoy a fully sponsored golf tour at The Fan Court Golf Estate in South Africa.
So far, 36 players from previous events have qualified for the ultimate tournament and comprise the tournaments’ Division One, Division Two, Division Three, and the Ladies’ category winners.
Speaking ahead of the event, NCBA Group Managing Director John Gachora noted:
“We are delighted to be taking the series to Limuru once again. So far the series has seen the participation of over 1800 golfers which is a very encouraging feat. As a bank, golf provides us with an opportunity to understand our customer’s needs and preferences. We look forward to the tournament as it will also provide us an opportunity to meet existing and potential customers from the region.”
The event follows the twelfth leg of the series that was played at VetLab Sports Club a fortnight ago where home player James Kimani claimed the Division One victory at the event with a round of 42 points.
In the second division, Manoj Shanker carded a round of 43 points, two better than Grace Wanjohi, to claim the top spot in the category while Kozue Oba claimed the third division.
So far, the NCBA Series has been held at Kenya Railways, Nyanza Club, Kitale, Serena in Uganda, Nakuru, Great Rift, Sigona, Karen, Royal, and VetLab.
Karen and Serena hosted two of the series’ three junior golf events with the final junior tournament set to be held on 3rd-4th December at Muthaiga Golf Club.
