Teams can also be entered for Ksh 8,000. Tee off time starts at 12:00 noon.

The proceeds from the tournament will help Nature Kenya raise awareness of Kenya’s valuable ecosystems, and empower local communities to take the lead in their conservation.

About
In the five years Nature Kenya has been held the above tournament, the proceeds have been hugely successful in helping them to improve the lives of communities and conserve ecosystems in a number of locations across the country.

The proceeds of the 2014 tournament were used in planting 75,000 tree seedlings in the vulnerable Dakatcha woodland, an important Bird Area near Malindi and assisted communities living near Arabuko-Sokoke and Dakatcha to establish and manage tree nurseries as part of the forest rehabilitation programme.

This success story has only been possible through the kind support of individual like you. Please this time round consider supporting this conservation work as you enjoy the game of golf.
