Over 100 Amateur golfers will be taking to the greens at Kabete Open Championships in the Kenya Amateur Golf Championships (KAGC) this weekend on par 72 Vet Lab Sports Club.
Home player Mike Kisia currently leading the KAGC ladder, is the man to beat in the two day event.
Handicap plus three golfer last weekend clinched the Coast Open’s Barry Cup on Mombasa Golf Club course.
He has been having a good run since the season started and being at home, Kisia is certainly the player the rest will have to beat.
Like Mombasa, Kisia who moved to second place in the KAGC series with 287 points, will face among others, club-mates Edwin Mudanyi, Robinson Owiti, Isaiah Otuke, Royal Nairobi’s Kenneth Bollo, Jay Sandhu and Dennis Saikwa, Samuel Njoroge and Alfred Nandwa of Railway, and current KAGC leader John Karichu of Limuru Country Club.
Karichu retained his lead in the series despite his poor performance in Mombasa where he shot two poor rounds of 80 and 81.
He still leads with 340 points though he will have to score some points this weekend to remain at the top.
This weekend’s Kabete Open is a 54-hole event that offers more KAGC points than the two rounds Coast Open, while it also counts towards the World Amateur Rankings.
Saturday’s first round is set for 7am followed by the second round from noon while the third and final round will take place on Sunday.
