An huge field of 250 golfers drawn from various clubs in the country will be parading at the par 72 Ruiru Sports Club course in Ruiru this weekend for the ICEA Lion King of the Course second leg which comes barely a week after the first leg at Machakos Golf Club.

Formerly the ICEA Lion Group golf day, this weekend’s tournament will be the first corporate tournament at Ruiru Sports Club this year. It is the second year in a row ICEA Lion is visiting the Thika highway facility that has become one of the most popular corporate golf destination.

“We are grateful to have been included in the now country-wide King of the Course golf series and will do everything to make sure that we meet not just the expectations of the sponsors but also those of the people who came up with this great golfing idea,” said Ruiru captain Peter Mwaura.

“The course is playing relatively easy with the light rains around. It is going to be an exciting year opener for our members with lots of exciting prizes on offer,” added Mwaura, who will be among those chasing the ICEA Lion King Of Course title where he will be competing against some of the players who have been in great form lately.


The club’s 2019 champion Chris Andrea currently playing off handicap four, club chairman James Muraguri, Ben Omondi and lady golfers Catherine Wambui and Irene Wamoro have been enjoying great form lately.
