It is the Captain’s turn at the nine-hole Kiambu Golf Club course this weekend, following the successful Chairman’s Prize which was followed back-to-back by the Tropical Brands tournament last weekend.

The two-day event, whose first round is set for Friday, has attracted a field of 230 players spread over the two days to make sure that each player has a chance to play.

Outgoing captain Sammy Muriu said there will be enough marshals on the course to cater for the big field and to make sure that the event flows smoothly on both days.

“This is no doubt a big field for a nine hole course, but we have put in place some measures to make sure that players not only finish their rounds but enjoy a round of golf,” said Muriu.

“The course is playing long at the moment because of the rains but it has been set in a way that players will still enjoy a good round of golf.’

Among the players to watch will include Michael Karanga who posted 35 points in each round for a total of 70 to win the Chairman’s Prize by two points from Njenga Mbugua.

With such condition of the course, single figure handicap golfers such as veteran David Ndirangu, John Ngure may have a field day.
