200 golfers enlist for this weekend’s  NCBA  Series leg at  Ruiru

Ruiru Golf Club will play host to the last round of the 22 leg NCBA Golf series on Saturday with over 200 golfers taking to the par 72 course.

The golfers will battle for the remaining five slots up for grabs from the leg  at the Series Grand Finale which will be held next month at the Karen Country Club.

The Ruiru draw takes to 2,800 the total number of golfers who will have taken part in the Series since it teed off in January .

A total of 100 golfers – comprising of the top five finishers from each of the 20 seniors golf events held in the calendar – have so far qualified to play at the grand finale.

Of the 100, three will be junior golfers who emerged overall winners at their respective club events at Karen, Limuru and Royal Golf Clubs.

In doing so, NCBA has encouraged junior golfers to be part of its seniors’ events and has held a stand-alone junior golf series that brought together 85 juniors for a two-day contest at the Karen Country Club in August this year.

The top 43 finishers were picked to participate at the Rome Classic golf event in October and at the Big Five tournament in South Africa next year.

Nine year old Cherono Kipkorir poses with the overall winners trophy after her triumphant outing at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club leg of the 2021 NCBA Golf Series.

The second junior golf tournament will be held at the Muthaiga Golf Club from the 9th to the 10th of December 2021.

Speaking ahead of the Ruiru Golf Club event, NCBA Group Managing Director, John Gachora said:

“Being the last event on the calendar before the grand finale, I am looking forward to enhanced competition as golfers play to secure the remaining five slots available for the grand finale. I have no doubt that it is going to be a wonderful outing’’, he said.
