The Safaricom Golf Tour will visit Nyali Golf Club in Mombasa County this weekend for the series’ eighth leg.

The corporate tournament is scheduled for Saturday while the juniors will take to the course on Sunday alongside the golf clinic at the same facility.

“As we embark on the second half of our inaugural golf tour, we remain optimistic about the impact it is having. We have reached close to 3,000 young people through the clinics, junior tournament, and outreach programs and we look forward to interacting with more young people from the Coast this weekend”, Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa stated.

The tournament this weekend is also the first Safaricom Golf Tour event to be held in the coastal region. The event has attracted 220 senior golfers and over 50 kids from the Coast’s six counties, including Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale, Lamu, Tana River, and Taita Taveta.

The Safaricom Golf Tour has so far visited seven different locations in Kenya, including Nanyuki, Limuru, Muthaiga, Nyanza, Machakos, Eldoret, and Karen, attracting nearly 4,200 golfers who have participated in tournaments, junior clinics, and outreach programs.

The Nyali tournament comes one week after the seventh leg of the tour held at Karen Country Club last week which saw 70-year-old Don Riaroh and 9-year-old Muriithi Gatu named the overall winners in the corporate and junior tournaments respectively.

Following the Nyali tournament, six more legs will be held before the series concludes with a grand finale in August at Vipingo Ridge in Kilifi County.

Safaricom has also worked with the Junior Golf Foundation to continue identifying and developing young golf potential. Juniors can join the Junior Golf Foundation (JGF) for KES.1,000 and have access to any golf club in Kenya.
