Fresh from watching the Omega Dubai Desert Classic courtesy of a full paid trip by the sponsors, Richard Lutwama and Robert Busingye are fired up for the 4th Season of the Singleton Golf Challenge at Entebbe Club.
 
In Saturday's first round, the defending champions are up against Gregg Paterson and Nicholus Hercules who stand in their way of achieving back to back championships.
 
"We are excited and so thankful to all the sponsors for giving us this opportunity. We are particularly much spiced up and excited to be making this trip, we want to assure the golfers that we are coming back to take them on again," Lutwama said before they left for Dubai.
 
"We are coming back to defend our title and we are looking forward to some great golf once more at Entebbe Club,"
 
Other pairings in action on Saturday include that of 2018 winner Sheilla Kesiime who this time will partner with Gloria Mbaguta as they take on Phillip Walera/Jackie Kamunyu.

Wendy Angudeyo and Doreen Mwesigye, quarter-finalists last year have an early date with Eva Magala/Irene Nakalembe who finished third in the 2018 edition. 
 
Lillian Koowe/Bridget Basiima will entertain Josef Salani/James Eyul as Rita Apell/Aidhah Khamis face-off with Denis Oola/Ronald Kasozi.
 
Other interesting matches on the card include that of Yunus Bbaale/Michael Tumusiime versus Charles Hamya/Joseph Bogera, Oscar Semawere/Marvin Kagoro versus John Katto/Ancel Tumwesigye and that of Paul Nsereko/Enock Mugisha versus Caroline Namutebi/Judith Komugisha in the one-day tournament that has attracted over 170 golfers.
 
A brand new Mitsubishi Pajero 2020 model for a hole-in-one is the main attraction for this year's edition but the ultimate prize remains a fully paid golfing trip to watch the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in Dubai next January.
 
The 19th-hole experience will have golfers dressed in national colours or in kit depicting Ugandan dressing.
