Action returns to Ruiru as Lady Captain’s Prize tees off Saturday

Action resumes Saturday at Ruiru Sports Club as the Lady Captain’s Prize tees off.

After hosting one of the biggest golfing events in the country this year last weekend — the Captain’s Prize — the Thika Road-based facility will once again host nearly 250 golfers.

This will mark the end of a one year tenure for Mary Muthoni, a seasoned golfer who took over in April last year after serving an a Vice Lady Captain the previous year.

“It’s an exciting way to sign out after being in the thick of things for the past year. We are looking forward for an excellent tournament,” she Ms Muthoni.

The Captain’s Prize, which was held in honour of the outgoing golf captain Peter Mwaura, attracted 261 golfers.

The event was sponsored by KCB Bank Kenya and a host of other partners.

The Lady Captain’s tourney will be sponsored by, among others, Landmark Motors, Coca-Cola and Radiant Group of Hospitals.

Last weekend’s top performers like Fr James Kinuthia, Kimani Munyua, Isaac Nguku, Lucy Kwendo and Irene Wamoro will be hoping to defend their wins.

The event has drawn in golfers from other clubs across Kenya, with an array of prizes on offer.

Several local professional golfers are also expected to grace the event with top prize money of KSh50,000.

Last weekend, Simon Ngige topped the charts during the Captain’s Prize, beating seven others.
