THE women’s category of the Celtel March Mug at Kitante golf course tomorrow has all indications of a tight contest.
Regina Ddamulira (pictured) who tops the chart with 17 points faces a stiff challenge from seasoned Monica Ntege, Harriet Kitaka, Jennifer Opio and Alice Kego who are tied in second position on 10 points each.
Ddamulira finished second in her group in January and won in February to amass 17 points and will be vying to maintain the lead.
Ntege who won in January but failed to finish within the points scoring position last month will be a hard nut to crack this time.
Celtel Uganda, sponsors the Uganda Golf Club (UGC) monthly mugs that will see the player with the highest points crowned at the end of the year.
The 18-holes competition also has three groups in the men’s category.
Meanwhile Crane Bank has bankrolled the Kigezi Open golf tournament due in Kabale over Easter weekend.
An official in the public relations office of the bank confirmed that they would fully sponsor the two-day tournament.
The event that is the second on the Uganda Golf Union (UGU) calendar will be launched early next week at Kabira Club.
The tournament organised by Kabale Golf Club will be played on the highly competitive stroke-play format.
The tournament in which top 10 players will score UGU points is expected to attract competitors from Kampala, Jinja, Entebbe, Fort Portal, Masindi, Arua, Mbarara and Kabale golf clubs among others. UGU has however delayed to release the points scoring format.
Toro Golf Club star Stephen Kasaija won the first UGU event on his home course at the weekend.
He beat Entebbe’s Godfrey Mande in a play-off after the 36-holes thrilling contest ended in a deadlock.
Kasaija now leads the inaugural national golf standings with his victory at Toro Club.
