Professional golfers Dennis Anguyo and Deo Akope will miss the last part of the MENA Golf tour in the Middle East as they failed to acquire visas to travel to Oman and Saudi Arabia.
“We shall not be travelling to the Middle East for the tour,’ Anguyo said. “We failed to acquire the visa’s to travel for the tournaments.” The two Ugandan golfers had set there eyes on taking part in the Ghala Valley Golf Club tournament in Oman, that is already underway and the Al Ain Golf Citizen Masters at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club, from 26-29 October in Saudi Arabia.
The golf duo was set to make there second attempt at the lucrative MENA Golf tour in the Middle East having failed to make the cut last year.
The Tour’s mission to develop amateurs who represent their countries is the catalyst needed to encourage more people to take up golf. The region needs golfers.
Regardless of whether they come from within or outside the region. What matters is to build momentum, which is what the MENA Golf Tour provides and strives for.
The Tour is open to all MENA national and international professionals and amateurs.
