Great Rift Valley Resort Hosts Penultimate Qualifier Event of NCBA Golf Series
The penultimate qualifier leg of the 2023 NCBA Golf Series is scheduled to take place this Saturday, September 2nd, 2023, at the Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort.
Over 100 golfers are scheduled to tee-it-off at the resort’s picturesque, yet challenging,18-hole course for a chance to qualify to play in the Series grand finale, which will be held at the Sigona Golf Club, later this year.
The event will be the thirteenth in the series, where winners will be feted in various categories including overall gross, men’s, ladies’, and juniors’ categories.
Speaking ahead of the tournament, NCBA Group Managing Director John Gachora said: “We are excited to be heading back to Great Rift for the thirteenth event in our 2023 calendar. The course’s breathtaking views and challenging layout promise an exciting competition for both participants and spectators, and we are, therefore, looking forward to the event.”
The Great Rift Valley Golf Course, established in 2000, is renowned for its stunning views of mountains, plains, lakes, and the Rift Valley’s escarpments. The course features 18 holes around the Great Rift Valley Lodge, providing a picturesque setting for the competition.
This leg follows the recent event which was held at the Kitale Golf Club on August 19th, 2023, drawing the participation of 84 golfers. The top performer in that event was Isaac Gitonga, who secured the top spot with a score of 70 gross.
