The Kenya Open Golf Limited and the European Tour today announced that the Magical Kenya Open, scheduled to take place from November 12-15 at Karen Country Club, has been cancelled.

The tournament will instead be part of the European Tour’s schedule in 2021, returning to a March date which has been tradition since the first Kenya Open Championship in 1967.

“We are continually grateful for the close relationship that we enjoy with the European Tour. By sharing insights with us on the ever-changing landscape of the international golf tournaments, we were able to make an informed decision to once again postpone the Magical Kenya Open to a more suitable time next year,” said Peter Kanyago, the Chairman of Kenya Open Golf Limited.

“The European Tour enjoys a successful long-term relationship with Kenya Open Golf Limited and we are grateful for their continued support. We look forward to working closely with them in the coming months as we prepare to return to Karen Country Club next year,” said Ben Cowen, the European Tour Deputy Chief Operating Officer International.

The golfing showpiece was initially due to be played from March 12-15 but was rescheduled to November following the Kenyan government’s directives to prevent the spread of COVID-19 disease.
