"The tournament will live up to its billing and we welcome people to come and enjoy Kenyan hospitality, food and music."
Defending champions Isaac Kisembo and Monica Ntege are among a strong field of over 150 players set to compete in the 7th edition of the annual Kenya Golf Day championship at Kitante on Saturday.
Last year, Kisembo's 38 and Ntege's 36 stable ford points propelled them to the top prizes in the men and ladies categories, and going by recent results at Kitante, a much improved performance might be required of them in the one-day tournament.
The likes of Moses Ssebugwawo, Gloria Mbaguta, Andrew Muhwezi, Ruth Ssali and Annette Kiconco are expected to contest as favourites once again in their respective groups.
Speaking at the sponsorship handover ceremony Naveed Saleem, General Manager Marketing and Sales at Multiple Industries assured the golfing fraternity to expect the best in the one-day tournament.
"In associating with the Kenya Day Golf tournament golfers are assured of quality treatment just like the quality products we offer," Saleem said before wishing the entire golfing fraternity a grand festive season and a happy new year.
The tournament organisers Lesmart represented by Sammy Migunda expressed their gratitude to all the sponsors who have come forward in a big way to support the event and to the players who have registered in large numbers to take part in the tournament.
"The tournament will live up to its billing and we welcome people to come and enjoy Kenyan hospitality, food and music," Migunda stated.
