Twenty five Rwandan golfers take to the Entebbe Club today to try and avenge their defeat to their Entebbe Club counterparts, in the two-legged Castle Lite inter-club championship at Entebbe Club.

Last year, Entebbe Club members won both legs of the event in Kigali and Entebbe and will be gunning for their fourth championship, having won three of the seven outings of the annual series.

Stanley Muhwezi, Michael Tumusiime, Josef Salan and Pamela Tumusiime returned the best scores last year for Entebbe who won by a 66 stroke margin (718-784).

The likes of Jude Ochieng, Peter Apell, Allan Muhereza, Daniel Opwonya, Innocent Kihika, Twinemanzi Tumubweinee and Edwin Tumusiime might also be called upon to contribute to the home win ahead of the second leg in Kigali.

Rwanda will be led by Rwanda High Commissioner to Uganda, Frank Mugambage who will also preside over the event after. The other team members include Eugene Mulegeka, Anthony Olwit, Steven Kinuka, Patrick Mulenga, Justus Kayonga, Brian Kirungi, John Thiaru and Chris Mburu.

The rest are Steven Katwiremu, Sam Mburu, Azzy Twagira, Nobert Kagoro, Kelvin Kuria, Andrew Kulayige, and Innocent Rutamu among others.

The Entebbe- Kigali friendship Cup was started seven years ago to enable the two clubs build a good relationship among them-selves. The first visit to Kigali golf club was done in February 2011 with a contingent of 15 golfers from Entebbe Club. Kigali Golf Club won the event during that visit and when they made the return journey to Entebbe in June of the same year Entebbe won.

 Kigali won the subsequent competitions until last year when Entebbe won both competitions home and way and took the trophy for the first time after Entebbe fielded over 50 players in Kigali.
