The 2019 Lady Captain’s Prize golf tournament swings into action on Saturday morning at the par 72 Uganda Golf Club, Kampala.

A big field of over 150 golfers have already entered day long championship with a visiting delegation from Nakuru based Nyahururu Golf Club.

At least 25 golfers from Nyahururu club will be part in the medal-format event.

The tournament was officially launched mid-week in Kampala.

Uganda Golf Club lady captain Anne Abeja noted that hole no.4 has been given a face-lift with a big water hazard and golfers will enjoy the action over that particular hole.

We are expecting visiting golfers from Nyaruhuru golf club to take part in this year’s edition which has attracted close to 200 golfers from 8 clubs in the country. The uniqueness of this tournament that is the biggest event organized by the outgoing lady captain is that this year it will be the first to be played on hole 4 that has been given a facelift with a huge water hazard over it
