The 102nd edition of  NCBA Kenya Amateur Match Play Championship teed off Thursday at Windsor Golf and Country Club.

Over 70 players drawn from hosts Kenya,Uganda,Rwanda,UK,India and South Africa are taking part in the event that culminates Sunday.

Defending champion Michael Karanga is set to defend his title amidst tough competition from top amateur golfers across the region and beyond.

The championship will follow a rigorous format starting with strokeplay on day one played over 36 holes, where all participants will battle for a spot in the subsequent Match Play rounds.

Kenya Amateur Match Play Championship is exclusively open to male participants this year, and therefore, female competitors will not be taking part in this weekend’s tournament.

The winner of this event will have an automatic slot to play in the 2025 Magical Kenya Open

“We are immensely grateful to NCBA for their steadfast support in providing a platform where our elite amateurs can thrive and potentially earn a livelihood,” remarked Chris Kinuthia, Tournament Director of the Kenya Golf Union. “Additionally, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to Windsor Golf and Country Club for graciously hosting this prestigious event over the next four days.”
