Uganda: Preparations for Ladies Open On Course

With less than a fortnight to the Uganda Ladies Amateur Open, the Uganda Ladies Golf Union (ULGU) are happy everything is falling into place nicely.

The 58th edition of the annual showpiece is scheduled for November 25-27 at the par-72 Kitante course.

A foreign legion of no-less than 15 elites has already confirmed participation in the coveted ladies tourney and two corporate companies have already eased the pressure on the organisers by confirming their support.

Kamukama, the 2009 winner of biggest prize in Ugandan women golf revealed they have already imported trophies and the ULGU executive, which consists of mainly players, is now concentrating on polishing their individual games. "We have a job to do by making sure the title remains at home," Kamukama said.

Seventy women are expected to compete in the Main event and ladies subsidiary category including seven Tanzanians, two Kenyans, two Zimbabweans and four Zambians.

Although there will be no professionals category as the glamour boys will be in Kigali for the Rwanda Open on the same weekend, 90 men amateurs will add spark to the event alongside a special junior category on the last two days.
