The prestigious Windsor Golf and Country Club will host the 102nd NCBA Kenya Amateur Match Play Championship from today through Sunday. 

This event, sanctioned by the Kenya Golf Union (KGU), features 78 players from Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, the United Kingdom (UK), India, and South Africa.

Defending champion Michael Karanga will face fierce competition from top amateur golfers in this rigorous tournament. 

The championship kicks off with 36 holes of stroke play on the first day, with participants vying for spots in the subsequent match play rounds. 

Notably, the event is exclusively for male participants this year.

Chris Kinuthia, Tournament Director of KGU, expressed gratitude for NCBA’s support and Windsor Golf and Country Club’s hospitality.

He observed: “We are immensely grateful to NCBA for their steadfast support in providing a platform where our elite amateurs can thrive and potentially earn a livelihood.”

The winner will secure an automatic slot in the 2025 Magical Kenya Open (MKO), enhancing the stakes of this already highly anticipated event.
