Safaricom Golf Tour Heads to Rift


The Eldoret Golf Club will play host to this weekend’s 6th leg of the Safaricom Golf Tour as the tournament makes its way to the Rift region.

The event has drawn over 200 golfers from Rift Valley and its environs including the Western region counties of Bungoma, Kakamega and Trans Nzoia. The senior tournament is scheduled to take place on Saturday while the Junior tournament will be held on Sunday.

“Our last five legs have attracted huge turn outs in all the regions we have toured. Having our sixth leg at the ‘City of Champions’ is yet another chance of advancing our goal of nurturing young talent and demystifying the sport. This region is known for producing athletics champions and I believe we can do so in golf as well,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom.

So far, the Tour has been held in Nanyuki, Limuru, Muthaiga, Nyanza and Machakos, attracting over 1,000 senior and junior golfers.

As a way of leveraging on the Safaricom and Junior Golf Foundation (JGF) Partnership, young participants can register with JGF for KES.1,000, which will enable them to access any golf club across the country for a whole year.
