Immediate former Limuru golf club captain Dennis Maara will be pairing up with his club mate Paul Muchangi at Friday’s Nairobi District Foursome golf tournament that tees off this today morning at the par 71 Muthaiga Golf club.
Maara, who has had a good run in the Kenya Amateur Golf Championships (KAGC) former Golfer of the Year (GOTY) when he won Coronation Trophy in Nakuru and Hippo Pot, the Nyanza Open in Kisumu said they have prepared well to the tournament, which is a 2022 season opener in the Kenya Golf Union (KGU) calendar.
“We are well prepared for the tournament and that will open doors for us in the KAGC series that will tee off in two weeks’ time with Sigona Bowl at Sigona Club,” said Maara.
According to the fixture released by KGU, the Maara and Muchangi pair playing for Limuru A will be facing off with the Thika C pair of Paul Nduati and Winston Kimani at 12:00pm.
Maara added that they had only one training together with Muchangi on Wednesday but that will not deter their progression in the three day event that tees off on Friday morning to Sunday afternoon.
