The tournament which is a unique tournament from the normal Annual Kenya Seed Classic Golf usually held during the planting season. Since the COVID-19 pandemic slowed down activities, Kitale Club has downscaled its activities and as the country gradually opened, they have played friendly tournaments sponsored by the members. This is one such tournament where the Kenya Seed MD will sponsor in his capacity as a member of the club and golfer.
The Kitale Golf Club is located at the entrance of Kitale town and guests can enjoy the open view of Mt Elgon as they watch the evening sunset in Kenyas’ breadbasket.
