Speaking ahead of the event, the Junior Golf Foundation President Regina Gachora noted that the tournament seeks to provide the youngsters with a platform to showcase their skills.

"A tournament like this is essential in developing the golfing talents of young people. It exposes them to multiple opportunities to compete on a global scale,” Gachora said.

Meanwhile, NCBA’s Group Director of Marketing and Communication Nelly Wainaina expressed her excitement to being a part of the first leg of the tournament.
