Ruiru hosts Daraja Capital golf tournament

Golfing action shifts to Ruiru Sports Club this weekend where Daraja Capital is returning for the fourth year running.

At least 180 golfers are expected to take part at the tournament on Saturday sponsored by the Nairobi-based financial services firm.

On Friday, there will be a curtain raising competition where 70 caddies are expected to take part. Of these, 16 will make the cut to participate in the main event on Saturday, said Golf Captain Peter Mwaura.

The tourney is one of the biggest in the Club’s annual sporting calendar. “We are bringing a more exciting experience as we seek to grow golf in the country. We have at least 22 categories of prizes up for grabs,” said Peter Njinu, the Managing Director at Daraja.

Among the golfers expected to put up a strong show based on recent form are Ben Omondi, Phillip Karoki, Joseph Mugo, Joseph Kibui and John Kibui. On the ladies roll, Winnie Mwangi and Winnie Kamau have been on tops.
