KITANTE- With the year winding down, golfers with no accolade in their trophy cabinet will be hoping they can scoop one in today’s Kenya Golf Day at the par-72 Kitante course.

The annual showpiece held to commemorate Kenya’s Independence will even be bigger as Uhuru Kenyatta’s people celebrate liberating themselves from British rule 50 years ago.

Sam Mubiru and Sheila Kesiime, two Ugandans, gate crashed the Kenyan party last year to win the respective overall men and women’s titles.
But members of the Kenyan golfing fraternity in Uganda are favourites to reign on a day that is expected to be fun-filled. “It is going to be a day for playing hard and making merry,” said organiser Martin Abuya.

A host of sponsors have come together for the one-day event that has attracted 200 golfers and will be played off the stableford full-handicap format.
