Saturday, 20th March – At Uganda Golf Club, Kampala

Mode of play: StableFord

The Uganda Golf Club course in Kampala will be a bee hive -like environ this Saturday, 20th March 2021 as the Lady Captain’s Prize Golf tournament takes center stage with the 30th edition.

At least 210 golfers have already confirmed to tee-off, drive, swing, chip and putt for the day long event that will be based on a stable-ford format.

The tourney official launch took place on Thursday, March 18, 2021 on the terraces of the famous course with 197 golfers duly registered by press-time.

And just like the past years, Tusker Malt Lager will add a premium touch to the tournament.

Owing to the stableford format, where, unlike the usual counting of total number of strokes taken per play, players will be scored based on the number of strokes taken at each hole.
