Tanzania is among 15 countries that are expected to take part in the Africa Amateur Men’s Golf Team Championship set for October 15-18 in Kenya.
According to the East African Golf Confederation president David Nyakang’o, the tournament will take place at the Limuru Country Club.
Countries that have confirmed their participation include hosts Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mauritius, Swaziland, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Egypt and Rwanda. Ivory Coast and Nigeria recently confirmed they will participate in the international team golf tournament that Kenya will be hosting for the first time.
Malawi, Ghana, Reunion and Namibia are yet to confirm their participation. Tanzania will join fellow East Africans seeking to halt South Africa’s dominance of the tournament and will be riding high after claiming the Africa Zone VI championship title in April.
The championship is usually played over 72-holes in four days and each country will be represented by a team of four players from where the best three scores in each round will count towards the team aggregate.
There is also a trophy for the best individual player.
