“We are delighted to be taking this series to Kitale County once again. Being the twelfth event in the series, this has been nothing but an amazing journey for us. This tournament has provided an opportunity for golfers around the country to showcase their talents and skills, and has also offered us the chance to interact with our clients from the different regions. As we head to Kitale for this event, we look forward to another amazing golf out at the scenic Kitale Club,” said Gachora.
