Platform to improve golfing skills:

Muyobo asserts that the NCBA Golf series will provide that platform to improve amateur golfers in the East African region.

This league of the NCBA Golf series at the Uganda Golf Club offers a great platform for amateur golfers to compete and improve their skills, which is one of the goals for these series. It is also a platform to interact with stakeholders from different regions and play at the grand finale in December this year at Muthaiga Golf Club.
