The pre-qualifying events which started on July 27 at Limuru, also visited Eldoret, Nakuru, Machakos, Thika, Nyanza, Sigona, Nyali, Windsor, Royal, Karen, Vet Lab and Muthaiga Club. D’Souza to play Among those vying for the trip to South Africa includes Vet Lab’s John D’Souza, who, playing off handicap 24 then, posted an amazing 44 Stableford points - so far the best score in the series. It will not, however, be an easy task getting such scores as the Karen course is currently being prepared for the Open and is likely to be tough. To spice up the day will be some of the country’s top junior golfers, among them Muthaiga’s Mutahi Kibugu and Kellie Gachaga who has a choice to either play at Karen or the ladies Open at Limuru Country Club. Joining the qualifiers will be guests and staff of Barclays Bank. The guests include Kenya Golf Union officials, led by their chairman Francis Okwara.
