Nyeri and Nanyuki golf clubs will on Friday and Saturday host the 2021 NCBA golf series  marking the second doubleheader event of the tournament.

The tournaments, which will be the seventh and eighth on the NCBA golf series calendar, will feature over 300 golfers taking to the course, with respective winners joining previous series event winners in the grand finale to be held in December this year at the Karen Country Club.

As part of both events, NCBA will conduct a tree-planting initiative in line with the bank’s ‘Change the Story’ movement, which includes a one million indigenous tree nursery endeavour undertaken in partnership with the Kenya Forest Services. Through the initiative, NCBA Bank will seek to encourage members across participating golf clubs to actively participate in tree planting to attain 10 percent forest cover across the country by 2022.

Speaking ahead of the doubleheader event, John Gachora, Group Managing Director, NCBA Group, said: “We are delighted to be taking our seventh and eighth events in the calendar to Nyeri and Nanyuki golf clubs. The central region’s cool weather conditions and altitude elevation will offer a wonderful experience for the participants in this weekend’s events.”

The NCBA golf series has so far been held at Thika, VetLab, Kitale, Sigona, Mombasa, and Nyali golf clubs. Winners from these events will meet at a grand finale event that will be held at the Karen Country Club in December.
