Gitau sparkles at Limuru NIC Golf Day

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 14- Lady Golfer Rose Gitau illuminated the NIC Bank Golf Day that attracted over 200 golfers at the Limuru Country Club over the weekend.

Playing off handicap-12, Gitau carded 21 in the front nine and 20 in the back for a total of 41 stable-ford points in the event played in fair weather and an easy course.

She had a bad start to her round, carding a double bogey on the difficult par-four opening hole but Gitau quickly made amends posting two birdies on the par-4 second, a relatively short hole and the par-3 fifth, a challenging, well bunkered hole with a two-tier green.

On the back nine, Gitau posted five pars and a birdie on the par-5 15th to finish.

“The staff at Limuru has worked very hard to keep the course immaculate, it is a great effort given the current weather conditions,” Gitau said. “I played well today, perhaps motivated by the great NIC Bank sponsorship, I trust the sponsors found our club to be fitting hosts and that they will return next year.”

Suryo Diyon and Noni Muhire, both playing off handicap-15, posted 40 each with even rounds on each nine in addition to firing 7-pars apiece through their rounds.

Diyon made a lone birdie on the downhill par-4 11th hole whilst Muhire made three on the par-5 third hole, par-4 10th and at the dogleg right par-4 12th.

Limuru’s vice chairman, Yassin Awale had a good round finishing with 39 off a handicap of eight.

The experienced Awale, a member of the Limuru Tannahill team, put dropped only five-strokes in his round. On the opening nine, Awale finished 3-over par gross, failing to score on the seventh, eighth and ninth holes.

On the back nine, he maintained a tidier card, dropping only two 3-strokes and finishing strong with a birdie on the par-5 18th. Janetta Mwangialso also finished with 39 points.
