Kenya Sports CS, Amina Mohammed, has said Kenya should continue hosting back-to-back European Tour golf events, spread across more venues across the country to give visiting players, and the world, a feel of the country’s diverse golf offering.
“What our request has been to the European Tour is not to make this a one-off: that we should continue having these back-to-back tournaments and hopefully we can even have three events and have them across the country so that we are not having all these tournaments here at Karen. We have beautiful golf courses across the country and I think that it would be wonderful for people to experience them,” she said.
“It’s the first time that you have two championships back-to-back. We feel extremely privileged, and I think it gives us that badge of honor], but it also allows Kenya to be seen as a sporting destination. As you know, we have hosted very many sporting events and so having this additional tournament being held here just confirms that we are actually a sporting giant on the continent.”
She said this on the sidelines of the third round of the inaugural Kenya Savannah Classic which is ongoing at the Karen Country Club. The event follows last week’s Magical Kenya Open that concluded on Sunday
