“This friendly match has created a strong bond between the two oldest clubs in the country. We set the trend in the first match. Congratulations for winning. We seek for a rematch,” Tumubweine said as his members chorused in unison; “We shall overcome some day” chants.

Kampala Golf Club members sang aloud ‘UGC we are the champions, we are the champions’ as the 19th hole turned into a noisy gathering.

Could the third leg re-match at Serena Golf Course in Kigo, Lweza, off Entebbe Road as suggested finally settle the egos?

Your guess is as good as mine.
