This year’s Nation Classic Golf series enters its home stretch with the fourth leg at the nine-hole Eldoret Golf Club course this weekend.

Coming after the first three legs held at Nyanza Golf Club, Nanyuki Sports Club and Nyali Golf and Country Club Mombasa, this weekend’s event has attracted a big field of 136 golfers who include players from other North Rift clubs such as Nandi Bears and Kitale.

Club captain Geoffrey Kitiwa says, though the course is currently in an excellent condition, it is likely to play long because of the ongoing rains.

“We have been having rain in the past few days though it has not flooded. The course is still in good condition, but it will obviously be playing long,’’ said Kitiwa, who is among those drawn to battle it out for some fabulous prize.

Besides the captain and some of the players, who have been in great form lately, such as Danny Chelogoi, Emmanuel Chelogoi and Fred Kibor, will be defending champion, youngster Ishaan Nathani.

The up and coming lad two weeks ago posted an impressive score of 42 points, to claim the overall prize in the Doctors Golf tournament.
