Malt Carnival wraps up in Muthaiga


NAIROBI, Kenya, April 12- After visiting 15 golf clubs across Kenya and hosting over 2900 amateur golfers from 35 golf clubs, the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival concludes Friday at the Muthaiga Golf Club.

According to Wanyi Mwaura, the Tusker Brand Manager, the final will include 140 qualifiers and 50 Tusker Malt Lager guests.

“This is it, after eight months of competition, the Carnival will conclude this weekend at Muthaiga. It has been an exciting journey; a journey that has taken our brand across the country to some of the best golf courses in Kenya,” she added.

The carnival was played in the now popular Four-Ball Better-Ball format.

“This year we decided to introduce the four-ball better-ball format, a format that encourages team work and bonding amongst the competing pairs,” Mwaura noted.

“We would like to thank the golf clubs for embracing this new format and I can assure you that our team will come up with an even more interesting format in the future.”

The series kicked off at the Railway Golf Club in September last year before moving east to the Machakos Golf Club and then North to the Njoro Country Club.

In November, the it moved to the nine-hole Kiambu Golf Club before returning North to Eldoret and then West to the Nyanza Golf Club.

The Limuru Country Club hosted the December round with Muthaiga and Sigona staging their rounds in January whilst Vet Lab Sports Club, Nyali and Thika Sports Club had their taste February. T

In March, it was the turn of Karen and the Royal Nairobi Golf.

“We also visited the Malindi in February, a first for the Carnival and we will include that beautiful golf club in the series in the new season,” Mwaura commented.

The winning team from the Tusker Malt Lager Golf Carnival will win a VIP golf trip to South Africa.

Mwaura said. “They will also receive top class golf instruction from teaching professionals at the Vodacom World of Golf in Sandton and hopefully that will make them even better golfers
