2015 Stanlib Exclusive Golf tournament:

  • Winners: Monica Ntege and Andrew Muhwezi

Andrew Muhwezi and Monica Ntege were the inaugural winners of the 2015 Stanlib Exclusive Golf tournament at the par-72 Kitante course.

Muhwezi and Ntege swung their way to overall victories in the men and women categories with 43 and 38 points respectively.

Annette Rumanyika-Mulira, the Stanlib Uganda managing director noted;

Aside the overall crowns, we shall open two investment accounts worth Shs200,000 apiece for the winners. We are going to make this an annual event as we seek to cement a growing relationship with the golfing fraternity

Muhwezi said.

But I have to thank my playing partners Ashvin Kananathan, Duncan Kaggwa and Ernest Rukundo, who pushed me all the way and helped me return the best score of the day

The respective Group A, B and C winners; National Junior team star, Hassan Kiyemba (41), city lawyer David Nambale (39 c/b) and Robert Ntege (40) offered Muhwezi a challenge too but it was all in vain as they fell short.

Seven-handicapper Ntege, edged her closest challenger, the four-time Uganda Ladies Open, winner Flavia Namakula (37), by one point

A field of 168 golfers graced the one-day event.
