Africa-PressKenya. Over 150 golfers are expected to feature in 18th leg of the ongoing NCBA Golf Series at the Railways Golf Club this Saturday.

Five top finishers will qualify for the Series Grand Finale in December at the Karen Country Club.

Three Railways golfers and two from Golf Park will qualify for the grand finale—bringing to 85, the total number of players, who will have qualified for the event so far.

Commenting on the Railways tournament, the NCBA Group managing director, John Gachora said: “We look forward to having the series at Railways, particularly because we will be having the participation of membership from two clubs at one venue.”

“The top five winners from this event will join the others who have already qualified to play at the Series finale. Just like the other tournaments, we look forward to an exciting event on course.”

It confirms what we have always held – that the future of golf in our country lies in the hands of this young talent whom we must nurture to enhance our chances of producing global golf stars,” said Gachora

“There is a lot of promise in what the future holds for Kenyan golf. We will continue providing opportunities for them to further hone their skills.”
