The 2019 Ruiru Sports Club Chairman’s Prize will be the highlight of golfing action this weekend.
A huge field of golfers has been drawn for the Engineer James Muraguri tournament tomorrow as his one-year term comes to an end at the Thika-Road based Club.
Mount Kenya University is the anchor sponsor of the event that has attracted other brands such as regional lender KCB Bank, events firm PSAV Audio Visual and Swahili Beach Hotel among others.
In a signature gesture, MKU will use the event to announce its partial sponsorship towards the course irrigation project that the club has embarked on. The institution is expected to help the complete the project that is meant to raise the club’s profile as a championship course.
Golf captain Peter Mwaura, who has kicked off his second one-year term, said over 250 golfers are lined up for the tourney. This comes at the back of the highly successful Captain’s and Lady Captain’s tournaments hosted within this month.
The competition will draw in over 10 pros, five juniors, 70 caddies and 200 amateurs, heightening the run for the top honours.
Recent winners led by Patrick Miitii and Dominic Mathu will lead the charge for the over 30 categories of prizes. The special prizes include the Media, Clergy, Reciprocating Clubs and Detour Golfers.
