In Summary
  • Wednesday will be the official practising round, while the first round is set for Thursday, with two rounds set for Friday and the fourth and final round will take place on Saturday.
  • During the last event held at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe in 2017, South Africa claimed the overall team title and individual title.

The national team is due to leave the country on Tuesday evening for Port Louis, Mauritius for this year's All Africa Team Golf Championship to be held at Mont Choisy Le Golf course that tees off on Wednesday to Saturday.

The team, which will be led by Kenya Golf Union (KGU) chairman Anthony Murage, has been in training under national junior coach John van Liefland over the past three weeks at Muthaiga Golf Club ahead of the championship which has attracted a total of 15 countries.

Coach Liefland, who will not be travelling with the team, said Kenya was being represented by a very talented group of motivated players.

"I hope they can keep their heads cool in Mauritius and make Kenya proud. During the training, we worked a lot on iron play and proximity to the hole with short irons and wedge game and I have no doubt they will do well if they keep their heads down," said coach Liefland.
