This year’s Nation Golf Circuit resumes this weekend with the Mount Kenya leg at the nine-hole Nanyuki Sports Club course, after a two months break.

The first leg of the Nation Media Group-sponsored event took place at Kakamega Golf Club on March 11.

A field of 100 players drawn from Nyeri, Nyahururu, host Nanyuki and a number of guests from Thika, Ruiru and Railway, is expected to tackle to par-72 course which is recovering after an awful drought.

Club captain Jediel Muriungi on Thursday said the management has worked extra hard to put the course in good condition and ready for the weekend’s tournament.

“We had a terrible drought which really affected the course, but after the recent rains, the course is now looking great though there are some few bad patches,” Muriungi said.

As usual, NMG is offering some prizes for both the players from the region, guests and NMG staff.

Vying for the top prizes will include Muriungi, now playing off six, veteran golfer Peter Waweru and defending champion Richard Kabugi. But in addition to the golf event, NMG staff will donate text books to Ngaremara Primary School pupils in Isiolo.

The school is one of those on the Newspaper In Education (NIE) programme that aims at building brand publicity and readership for both Daily Nation and Taifa Leo amongst primary school pupils.
