NCBA Bank has launched a kshs 22 million junior and amateur golf series that will run in the country for about one year.
Speaking at Royal Nairobi Golf club during the launch, the bank’s Managing Director John Gachora said the bank is keen on partnerships and sponsorships that drive transformation.
“Sports sponsorship remains an important area for us because of its role in transforming the lives of Kenyans. We are committed to facilitating the growth of golf locally and make Kenya an international golf destination,” said Gachora.
The event will consist of 20 meetings across the country that tees off at the par 72 Thika Sports Club this Saturday 30th January 2021 with a grand finale at the Karen Country Club course on December 3.
“Sports sponsorship is a key avenue towards reaching out to our stakeholders across the country. Our golf sponsorship novelty over the years is an avenue of networking with our current and potential customers. “
In the junior category, young golfers aged between 6-18 years will feature in two tournaments at Karen Country on August 23 and 24 and Muthaiga on December 9 to 10.
“As NCBA, we are now a much bigger entity, with a bigger number of golfing customers. We had to rethink our approach to ensure we reach out to everyone across the country. That is why we are introducing an all-year-round amateur competition across various golf clubs, dubbed NCBA Golf Series.”
After Thika Sports, the events will move to Vet Lab, Kitale, Eldoret, Limuru, Royal Nairobi, Karen, Great Rift, Nakuru Golf Club, Sigona, Mombasa Golf Club, Nyali, Nanyuki, Kiambu, Machakos, Windsor, Leisure Lodge, Muthaiga, and Ruiru.
