Nakuru Captain Hillary Korir has predicted a tough challenge especially on hole 17 as Vivo Energy Golf series heads to par 73 Nakuru golf course.
Korir said that the number of golfers who have registered so far is a clear indicator that the tournament will be tough and challenging.
“So far on our draw, we have 150 golfers but we expect more come Saturday to approximately 200 on the material day,” said Korir.
Following a successful event in Kakamega last month, the series has been attracting many golfers across the country.
Korir added that the annual Vivo Energy tournament is one of the biggest event in the club. With such big tournament, he said the golfers will enjoys due to the superb greens.
“The course is in good shape due to rain but they should brace for a big battle on hole 17 par 3 due to the hilly positioning. Also they will be more challenges between high and low handicapped golfers as they battle for the crown,” said Korir.
According to the draw, Korir will tee off alongside S. Nanji, H. Graham and S. Nanji II at 10:30am.
