The 2017 Tusker Malt Uganda Golf Open amateur stroke play championship is going to be unlike any other as it will play host to some of Africa’s top amateur golfers who are raring to go.
With the defending champion, Ronald Otile and last year’s top players such as; Adolf Muhumuza, Basabose John, Kenya’s Muchangi Paul, Nandwa Alfred and Mudanyi Edwin, Rwanda’s Nsabimana Alloys, already confirming participation, the Tusker Malt Uganda Golf Open will be an electrifying one.
Some notable players from Uganda to look out for will include; Daniel Baguma, Ronald Rugumayo, Becca Mwanja, Adolf Muhumuza, Richard Baguma and Titus Okwong who returns to the country from the US to make his mark on the Tusker Malt Uganda Open.
The tournament will be played over a period of four days starting the 13th -16th September at the Kitante Golf Course.
Already, countries have confirmed participation with players coming from Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi, Ethiopia, among others.
Some foreign players to look out for will be Binyam Gebreselasi from Ethiopia and Mudanyi Edwin who return to Uganda with one sole purpose – to be the 2017 champion.
Speaking to the defending champion, Ronald Otile, he said; “This is my chance to play even better golf. I have improved my game a lot since I last played here.”
The Tusker Malt Uganda Open is in its 7th year and the partnership that Uganda Breweries Limited through its flagship premium beer Tusker Malt lager enjoy with the Uganda Golf Union, is ever growing stronger.
Tusker Malt Lager has injected over UGX 500 million into this year’s tournament as assurance to show its support for the development of the game golf in Uganda. There has been an increase in the cash sponsorship from UGX 230 million to UGX 250 million.
Tusker Malt Lager embodies the spirit of the game of golf. Tusker Malt lager is slow brewed with an ingredient base of 100% malt giving it that unmistakably rich, smooth premium taste that is widely recognized and that consumers have grown to love.
