Nyali Captain’s draws huge field

By LARRY NGALA lngala@ke.nationmedia.com
Posted Thursday, January 13 2011 at 17:17

As the top amateur golfers await the Kenya Golf Union Golfer of the Year (Goty) Series to tee off at Sigona Golf Club in a week, action at club level gets into top gear with at least 12 tournaments lined up for this weekend.

However, the weekend’s highlight will obviously be at Nyali Golf and Country Club – the Captain’s Prize, the first major golfing event at the Coast this year and the second at the club after the Lady Captain’s Prize last weekend.

Outgoing Nyali captain Gurbux Singh, one of the leading golfers at the Coast, has brought together an impressive field of 160 players, including six of the country’s professionals, led by resident pro Kopan Timbe.

Recognising relationship

Nyali has in its annual calendar two rotational matches – the Dar es Salaam Gymkhana in Tanzania and Uganda Golf Club Kitante in Uganda – and, recognising the relationship between his club abd and the cross-border ones, Singh has invited their respective captains, Joseph Tango and Sam Okello, to join the host members and other invited guests from various clubs in Kenya.

The local guests, who will be batting it out at the par 71 Nyali course, one of the toughest in the country, include Vet Lab’s Boniface Simwa. On December 19, Simwa beat Royal Nairobi’s Jay Sandhu on this course by three shots to claim the 2010 Nyali Open.

Simwa, who followed the Nyali Open title with a historic victory in the Nairobi District Foursomes at Muthaiga last weekend, is drawn with Mombasa Golf Club chairman Eric Nyongesa, outgoing Muthaiga chairman Philip Kungu and Timbe in what is expected to be a thrilling round.

Highest number of juniors

The two-day tournament starts with a medal round tomorrow and stableford on Sunday It is sponsored by Real Insurance as well as friends of the captain, who are specifically sponsored the junior category of the competition.

Nyali has the highest number of juniors in the country and has introduced the category in every event played at their home.

KENYA'S TOURISM SECTOR NOW ADDS GOLF TO LIST OF ATTRACTIONS

A number of championship golf courses across Kenya, several of them within or just outside the country's capital city of Nairobi, has prompted added promotional activities to attract golfers from across the world to come to the country and play 'safari golf' on the many upcountry courses but also sample the world class courses like Muthaiga, Royal Windsor and other more recent additions even at the coast.

Golfing generates mega billions of US Dollars in revenue each year and many aficionados travel the globe to play a couple of rounds on a course they fancy, and are willing to pay a great deal of money for the privilege in not just green fees but their entire travel arrangements, tickets, accommodation, meals, transport and extras spent on location.

In Kenya several specialised operators have in the past been tapping into this market but it appears that the Kenya Tourist Board has adopted this niche as one of their target groups too, intensifying marketing efforts to promote and popularize golfing in Kenya alongside the more traditional vacation products like safaris, beach holidays and cultural travel. KTB and private sector tourism stakeholders have now brought a number of officials of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators into the country to show them a range of Kenyan golf courses and club facilities and get their input how best to put Kenya on the global golfing map, following Kenya's success at the last International Golf Travel Market, where the country was declared 'Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year 2009'. As expected, at the end of the visit to Kenya's leading golf courses, has the CEO of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators Mr. Peter Walton heaped praise on his hosts and encouraged Kenya to do more in terms of global promotion of the sport, saying also 'golfers will get value for money here'. It was also learned that the courses visited were 'audited' and will receive grading marks which golf tourists can follow.

The established major Kenyan golf clubs like Nairobi's Muthaiga, Royal Windsor and Karen have invested heavily in recent years to raise the level of facilities and add to the challenge of their courses and private investors have put up championship courses at the South coast of Mombasa already some years ago and are putting final touches on the much expected new 'Vipingo Ridge' golf course at the North coast of Mombasa, where also residential properties are being built for purchase by those wanting to spend more time in Kenya every year. It is such levels of investments, and the foresight in doing so, which has moved Kenya ahead of her East African competitors as few facilities of true international standards otherwise exist in the wider region as yet. Opportunities knock on many doors, but apparently only some open their doors to let them in!
