In Summary

  • The Muthaiga leg of the 2019/20 Safari Tour Golf Series has been postponed.

The Muthaiga leg of the 2019/20 Safari Tour Golf Series has been postponed.

Event organisers, the Kenya Open Golf Limited (KOGL) announced that a new date will be set for the Muthaiga leg which was initially primed for December 14-18 this year.

Making the announcement, KOGL Tournament Director Patrick Obath said the decision was occasioned by the condition of the Muthaiga Golf Club course following recent rains that the country has experienced over the past few weeks.

“Due to recent rains, the Muthaiga Golf Club has received 284mm of rainfall over the last 10 days; leaving the course in a condition that is not suitable to hold a Safari Tour Golf Series event,” he said.

He added: “This decision has been reached after careful deliberation and in consideration of both players’ safety and the tournament’s integrity and standards. A new date for the event will be communicated in due course.”

The 2019/2020 season of the Tour has so far featured six competitions across Kenya and Uganda, in the process producing five different winners among them Greg Snow, Madalitso Muthiya, Tonu Omuli, Jastas Madoya and Dismas Indiza – who has won two tournaments.
