In Summary

  • It forms the return of the series which had taken a break following disruptions occasioned by the March wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which subsequently led to the rescheduling of three events on the series’ calendar
  • The resumption follows the issuance of COVID-19 health and safety protocols to guide competitive golf events in the country by the Kenya Golf Union (KGU), following similar directives by Kenya’s Ministry of Sports

The 2021 NCBA Bank Golf Series resumes this weekend at the Par-72 Sigona Golf Club where a field of over 200 home golfers are expected to take to the course.

The event is the fourth of the Bank’s 21-tournament series which teed off at the Thika Golf Club in January this year.

It forms the return of the series which had taken a break following disruptions occasioned by the March wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which subsequently led to the rescheduling of three events on the series’ calendar.

The resumption follows the issuance of COVID-19 health and safety protocols to guide competitive golf events in the country by the Kenya Golf Union (KGU), following similar directives by Kenya’s Ministry of Sports.

As part of the event, NCBA Bank will conduct a tree planting, as part of the Change the Story initiative: a one million indigenous tree nursery endeavour that is undertaken by the bank and other like-minded partners

Through the initiative, NCBA Bank will seek to encourage members across participating golf clubs to actively take up tree-planting in a bid to attain 15 percent forest cover across the country by the year 2022.

In line with the KGU health and safety protocols and guidelines, NCBA will work closely with the Club management to ensure the health and safety standards of all participants.

The series has so far been held at Thika, Vetlab, and Kitale Golf Clubs.

As part of the series, the Bank seeks to hold a two-day Junior Golf Series which will cater for upcoming golf talent in Kenya for junior golfers who are aged between six and 18 years.

The junior series will feature events at Karen Country Club from the 23rd to the 24th August, 2021, and at the Muthaiga Golf Club from the 9th to the 10th of December this year.
