Uganda will be hoping to win the trophy for keeps
The Uganda Golf Union has summoned 16 players to start preparations for the East Africa Golf Challenge tournament due in Tanzania next month.
As defending champions, Uganda will be hoping to win the trophy for keeps after winning it in Entebbe and Ethiopia over the past two years.
The invited players start preparations with a 36-hole stroke play competition-qualifier at the Uganda Golf Club to test their endurance and individual capabilities.
The top ten will then be taken through drills before returning to camp on August 10 to prepare for EAGC which tees off on August 22 at the Gymkhana club in Dar-es-salaam.
Edrine Okong and Joel Basalaine could have joined Denis Onyango and veteran Steven Kasaija but for their tight school commitments, they won't be able.
The other twelve that represented Uganda in the Victoria Cup last month include Adolf Muhumuza, Dennis Asaba, Ronald Rugumayo, Becca Mwanja, Herman Mutebi, Martin Ochaya, and Richard Baguma.
The rest are David Kamulindwa, Emma Ogwang, Davis Kato, Ismail Muhamud, Michael Alunga and Grace Kasango.
Another option for the Ugandan team is South Africa based Ronald Otile and Daniel Baguma who can be called on to boost the team.
