  • Date: Saturday, 8th June 2019
  • Mode of play: Match play (Main championship) & Stable ford (Subsidiary)
  • Venue: Entebbe Golf Club

*Early Tee-offs: 7 AM

*Theme Night: Vegas

Theme nights have often overshadowed the main golfing action every time the Singleton Golf challenge round is held at the lakeside par 71 Entebbe Club.

Saturday, 8th June 2019 could be different this time round as the semifinals of the third season come knocking.

Four pairs of golfers will battle for the final two slots in the amateur wing as the four standing professionals will lock horns in the paid ranks section.

As always, the rest of the golfing crop that includes those eliminated at earlier stages and the guests all play in the subsidiary group.

The winning pair in the amateur section will win an all-expenses-paid to watch the Dubai classic series later this year.

Match ups:

Suubi Kiwanuka playing alongside Timothy Mwenda will battle Geoffrey Orach and Andrew Atuhairwe.

Robert Busingye pairing with Richard Lutwama will lock horns with Samuel Kato and Charles Odero.

The pro golfers are playing for Shs 50M as the total kitty.

Entebbe born and raised professional Herman Mutebi will face clubmate Ibrahim Ainamani.

Since the last round we played in May, I have kept preparing for this semi-final contest and I am set to play my opponent (Ainamani). Of late, I have been chipping and putting a lot during the practice session. I am ready for Saturday.

For starters, Ainamani is a former member at Palm Valley Golf Club.

Uganda Golf Club’s based professional Herman Mutawe takes on Tooro Club’s Ronald Rugumayo in the other contest.

There is also a car staked for the hole in one successful golfer.

Like it has been since January 2019, the best performers on the day will receive their trophies and other prizes besides the 18th green earlier before the party and merrymaking commences at the 19th hole.

The 19th hole celebrations will be capped by a vegas-like atmosphere.
