Meanwhile, away from Kiambu, Thika Sports Club will host the annual Teresia Nyambura Memorial tournament which has attracted a big field of 208 players with post entries still being accepted.

Among those drawn in the event where more players are likely to enter through post entries, is Kenya Amateur Matchplay Championship Joseph Gathumbi who two weeks ago fired seven under par 44 points that included eight birdies and only one single bogey to claim the overall title in the Syngenta golf tournament.

Gathumbi was one of the leading amateurs who were in Mombasa last weekend for the century-old Barry Cup at the tough playing Mombasa Golf Club.
