Vetlab Sports Club to Host KCB Golf Series this Weekend


A large field of over 200 golfers is expected to be part of the KCB East Africa Golf Tour at the Vetlab Sports Club this Saturday as golfers brave the chilly weather for a competitive showdown.

The 18-hole course will see action get underway at 6:30 am where top golfers from Nairobi and its environs battle it out for the top spots. The afternoon tee is slated for 2:30 pm.

“KCB has played a pivotal role in elevating golf in the East African region through its golf series. For the second year running, we are part of this amazing initiative that will go a long way in fostering the golfing culture in Kenya and beyond. We expect a huge turnout despite the rainy season in the country and we urge golfers to come enjoy our well-kept greens,” said Club Captain, Vincent Landa.

Teams from Burundi, Kakamega, Uasin Gishu, Nairobi, Mombasa, Nyeri, Kericho, and Nandi Counties have already secured their places in the tour’s grand finale in December.

“Our investment in golf is aimed at giving an opportunity to budding golfers to learn the ropes of the game, to hone their skills and to compete locally, regionally and internationally further cementing our status on the global map as a favourite golfing destination,” noted KCB Group Director Marketing and Communications, Rosalind Gichuru.

The Kenyan edition has reached close to 1,000 participants and over 500 juniors who take part in the clinics that run concurrently with the series. This year, KCB is targeting 3,000 participants and 1,500 juniors in the  24-leg amateur tournament.

To further sweeten the competition, KCB has partnered with Beulah City Ltd, a property firm, to give an apartment (in the Ikhaya Beulah Genesis project) valued at KShs.2.1 million as the hole in one prize for every during the 2024 tour.
