Safaricom Golf Tour will tee off this Saturday at the nine hole Nanyuki golf club in Laikipia county.
The tour, which was launched last weekend, golfers will be battling in 14 legs that will culminate at the Vipingo Ridge Golf Resort for the Grand finale.
The opening leg has attracted 102 golfers where juniors have also been included in the 14 meetings across the country
Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa said Safaricom has been a big supporter of various golf initiatives across the country including CSR-based golf events, global events such as the Magical kenya Open and the Magical Ladies Open at Vipingo.
“The events have given our brand the opportunity to support communities and connect with our customers. We now have an opportunity to make golf accessible by focusing on the youth,’’ said Ndegwa
He said Safaricom kicked off the partnership with JGF in October last year by coming together with other corporates whereby Safaricom signed an agreement to support the foundation with the training of coaches. This started with JGF bringing US Kids golf Foundation to train 40 coaches from across the country.
