Railways Club set to host ladies’ Open series next month

Over 100 ladies have confirmed participation in the nine-hole Railway Golf Club Ladies Open series’ 2017 edition set for August 12-13.
The players will vie for the Silver and Bronze division titles in this year event sponsored by Safari Park Hotel and Casino.
“As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, we give back to the society in various forms. However, in this case we will be giving back to the golfers, who are among our major clients in the corporate world and the organizations they represent,” said Njeri Muhindi, the hotel’s acting public relations officer.
“This is one of our popular event here at Railway and the course has been well prepared for the event,” she added.
The event has attracted among others Kenya’s leading lady golfer Kellie Gachaga, who will battle it out with Golf Park’s Ashley Awuor, Kiambu’s Wanjiru Karume and Royal Nairobi’s Sarah Hoare.
Railway lady captain Joyce Gikunda said the club was more than ready to host the ladies. “This is one of our popular event here at Railway and the course has been well prepared for the event,” she said.
Apart from the Ladies Open, the 96-old Railway course usually hosts the men’s Railway Invitation which is part of the Kenya Amateur Golf Championship (KAGC) series, and the country’s leading men golfers, who will be down at the coast battling it out for the century-old Barry Cup at Mombasa Golf Club.
Elsewhere, Kiambu Golf Club will host the Rware Classic tournament. Club’s chairman Njeru Njagi said the event seeks to appreciate some of their members from Nyeri County. “One of the reasons for having this weekend’s tournament is to consolidate and network with Nyeri (Rware) county golfers in the diaspora,” Njagi said.
