Speaking in anticipation of the tournament, Andrew Kulayige, the Captain of Kigali Golf Club, remarked, “We have kept our course neat and ready for the event as one team hunts for the grand finale spot. I urge golfers from within the city and its environs to sign up for this competition that will without a doubt position Kigali as a sports hub. We look forward to the grand finale and hopefully our team emerges victorious.”

Notably, at the par 72 Machakos Golf Club, a team composed of Jackson Musomba, Simon Kimatu, Ben Mumo, Francis Mbithi, Joseph Malatu, Francis Musembi, Kyalo Munyao, and Engineer Okemwa secured their places at the grand finale.

“KCB East Africa Golf Tour aims to onboard all the golf enthusiasts across the East African region in a bid to expand the sport of golf. The Rwanda edition gives an opportunity to budding golfers to showcase their prowess while enjoying themselves in the beautiful Kigali golf course. I wish all the teams the best as they tussle for the top spot this weekend,” quipped BPR Bank Head of Marketing, Corporate Affairs and Citizenship, Albert Akimanzi.

The KCB East Africa Golf Tour will then proceed to the 18-hole Nyali Golf Club on November 4 for another competitive showpiece.
