Speaking ahead of the Grand Finale, NCBA Group Managing Director John Gachora said he expects the grand finale to live up to expectations.
“We are really excited about our Grand Finale this Friday which will be a culmination of what has been a very exciting golf series. Going by the success of last year’s series, we expected this year’s edition to be even better and we are glad that it has lived up to that expectation. The competition from the qualifying rounds has been stiff with golfers taking up the opportunity to showcase their golfing prowess and there has been a general improvement from last year’s performances,” said Gachora.
He added: “This year, we sought to take the tempo a bit higher and we did that by including a trip to the famed Fancourt Golf Course in South Africa as the ultimate prize for the winner. This means that the stakes are high for the Finale, and we, therefore, expect that the level of competition will similarly be high. We look forward to an exciting and entertaining competition as we crown the ultimate winner.”
The Series, which teed off in February this year at Railways Golf Club, has seen over 2,400 golfers take part across 14 legs in various golf clubs around the country.
