The field also includes John Karichu, Dennis Saikwa, and Tanzania’s Victor Joseph who finished second to Nduva in the Kenya Amateur Open.

Meanwhile, Ruiru Sports Club hosts its first ever Kenya Ladies Golf Union Open this weekend. The event, which has attracted 60 ladies and 100 men, is sponsored by Safaricom.

“We are excited to host this event here at Ruiru. The course is in an excellent condition, and with some of the top lady golfers participating, there should be some interesting scores,’’ said Lady captain Winnie Kamau.

At Royal Nairobi Golf Club, club captain David “Sirkal’’Omondi is hosting the two-day Captain’s Prize which officially brings his term to an end.

“What begins must come to an end. My captaincy year has been full of selflessness and I have gained invaluable experience in genuine servant leadership! I could not have achieved this level of success without the various sponsors and especially Commercial Bank of Africa and of course members of Royal Nairobi Golf Club,’’ said Omondi.

He said Saturday and Sunday’s entry list has been overwhelming, with more than 300 players expected.

“I take this as an indication of the good work I have done over the year despite the earlier challenges we faced with the course during Tannahill Easter tournament, and recently during the dry spell.’’ 

He said the Royal course had recovered well.
