In Summary
  • Watch out for fresh from victory Dhutia, ex-Nyanza captain Manono and long-hitting Munyao as they battle for overall prize.
  • Over 153 golfers enter tournament that is open to golfers from entire coast region.

Action in the 2017 Nation Media Group-sponsored Golf Circuit resumes with the third leg at Nyali Golf and Country Club, Mombasa this weekend.

By the time of writing, a total of 153 golfers had listed their names to play in the Nyali event which comes almost a month and half after the second leg at Nanyuki where Nyeri’s Wachira Keen carded a total of 39 points to emerge the overall winner.

The field included about 28 guests drawn from various clubs in Nairobi, Nyeri, Muthaiga, and Machakos as well as a number of Nation Media Group led by NMG human resources director David Kiambi and group company secretary James Kinyua.

The event is open to golfers from the entire Coast regional clubs of Nyali, Mombasa, Leisure Lodge, Vipingo and Malindi.

More players are thus likely to turn up at Nyali at the time of teeing off on Saturday morning from 7am.

Those who had already listed their names to vie for the overall winner’s prize included Vishnu Dhutia, who last weekend, fired nett 66 to claim the top prize during the Friends of Captain tournament.

Also in the starting list are former Nyanza captain Evance Manono, Philip Mbugua, William Kaguta, and long-hitting George Munyao.
