DT Dobie challenges Karen Masters golfers to win a brand new Volkswagen Tiguan by registering an albatross on the 18th hole. To take the car home the participant needs to shoot a three under par for the par five hole. A difficult, but not impossible feat.
The compact Volkswagen SUV was delivered by UshaNagpal, the General Manager for Volkswagen, to Koki Muia the Sponsorship Chair for the KCB Karen Masters, who was accompanied by Simon Njunge, an eight handicap golfer who will be playing in the pro-am. The co-sponsorship includes the provision of a Mercedes bus and a Volkswagen transporter to carry the visiting professional golfers to and from the Karen course.
100 golfers who are regular competitors in the 12 Sunshine Tour events will be in Kenya to contest the second edition of the Karen Masters against 32 local professionals and 20 from other African countries.
The presence of Sunshine Tour golfers will generate strong international press, radio and TV coverage. This will boost golf in Kenya and help to promote golfing and long haul holidays in this country.
Jake Roos representing the Arabella Golf Estate in South Africa is one of the visiting golfers worth watching having won a past Kenya Open title. Together with the other overseas stars he will appreciate the Karen course which is in top class condition. Koki Muia commented, “Thanks to exceptionally good rain and the hard work of the Karen Golf Club ground staff the course is at its very best.”
