- Railway Invitation tournament attracts leading amateur players including in-form Mudanyi of Vet Lab.
The par 71 Nyali Golf and Country Club course, no doubt one of the best though very challenging in the country, will be the venue this weekend for the third and final events in the KPA (Kenya Ports Authority) Corporate golf series.
Coming exactly a week after the inaugural Mombasa County Governor’s Cup, which brought together amateur and professional golfers, the KPA tournament, one of the most sought after events at Nyali, has this year attracted a big field of 240 players.
The big field is probably because of the fabulous prizes and the social activities after the round of golf, which makes not only the Nyali one, but the rest of the KPA events most popular with golfers.
On the other hand, it is an important event for KPA management as it offers a great opportunity for the board members led by the Acting Managing Director Daniel Manduku, a golfer, to interact with their Coast-based customers and stakeholders.
Besides presiding the prize giving ceremony in the evening, Manduku, who is drawn with his four ball of Steve Oundo, Sam Wachira, and Jenipher Musyimi, will also be among the list of staff who will vie for the staff prize.
