Karen to host Johnnie Walker Golf series finals

Twenty-five teams will be battling for the Johnnie Walker golf Series grand final this Friday at the par 72 Karen Country and golf club.

After last week’s semifinal at Muthaiga golf club, the battle dubbed ‘Road to Gleneagles’ the 100 golfers will face off at the ultimate showdown for a ticket for the Gleneagles, the 20th and final event of the Johnnie Walker Golf Series calendar that kicked off in November 2021 and which has seen over 3,000 golfers participating across 18 golf clubs in the country.

Last week, twenty-five teams of four who qualified to play from the Eagle’s Round during the Semi-Final are expected to battle it out for the ultimate honour of being crowned the overall Series champion.

At stake is a fully-paid trip to the iconic Gleneagles Golf Course in Scotland for the winning team.

Speaking ahead of the event, Josephine Katambo, EABL’s Marketing Manager for Spirits said; “We are delighted to be holding our Grand Finale this Friday as a culmination of what has been a very successful golf series that kicked off last year. With top amateur players from across the country set to battle it out and the stakes being high, we can expect nothing but the very best of what the series has had to offer. We, therefore, look forward to seeing top golf from all participating golfers as we crown the ultimate winner who will be heading to Gleneagles.”

“We are pleased that the series has had great participation from across the country with over 3,000 golfers taking part. This speaks to what we set to achieve at the onset of this Series which was to give as many golfers a chance to play and improve their competitive skills. This is part of our commitment as a brand to support the growth and development of the sport of golf in the country which has shown great potential.”

Like in the qualifying rounds in the series, the golfers will compete in the tournament’s four-ball stableford format during the Grand Finale.

The Karen course which is one of the most pristine is currently in great condition, with some high scores expected from the golfers.
