The NIC Bank golf Series action tees off today at Kiambu with a field of over 120 golfers. The event is part of the ten clubs tour that is being sponsored by NIC bank this year.
Fred Njagi. the Kiambu Club vice captain says the course is in excellent condition in readiness for the tournament. "The dry spell has caused the fairways and the greens to be dry but our greens are in good condition as we have an irrigation system," says Njagi. "However, the course is challenging and players should watch out for our monster bunkers," he adds.
The earliest tee off is at 7:30am while the latest tee of time is 2pm and play is expected to end slightly after 6pm. Expected to challenge are last year's winners Charles Njoroge Kinyanjui and Samuel Ngara Kabundi playing off handicap 25 and 11 respectively.
"Our members are very competitive and the tournament is wide open," says Njagi. The NIC Bank Series have only two destinations left before the curtain falls. After Kiambu, the series will visit Nakuru on October 6 and culminate at Royal on October 27 "It's a great feeling and we really appreciate NIC Bank for recognising Kiambu as a partner in their golf circuit," says Njagi.
