Speaking  during the event unveil, the Chief Guest, Nairobi City County governor, Dr Evans Kidero, Said “The Golf tour is an initiative whose aim and intent is  to promote and improve the lives of local professionals and the game of golf in the country;  support and enhance the caddies golf and ranks considering most professionals have backgrounds and foundations through the caddies rank and conduct a junior talent academy, through the help of the professionals, for both junior golfers and caddies at the venue in order to scout for golf talent in schools. There is a lot of talent among the caddies’ golf and children in schools but very little is done in terms of promotion and empowerment of the same which leads to a waste of many young talents and an opportunity to excel and represent our beloved country in both local and international golf.”

The tournaments Grand Finale to be held on the 15th December, 2016 will be used to raise funds towards priority community projects especially furthering the education of the students participating in the Golf Talent Academy.

“Golfing is both a sport and a source of livelihood for the professionals.  It therefore follows that by initiating more tournaments in the region, we will be whetting their skills and preparing them for better lives as they stand in a position to win many tournaments, drawing similarity with other international professionals who practice in major tournaments like The Sunshine Tour in South Africa or the European Tour Challenge, which is known as Kenya Open here at home. A Golf talent Academy will be scheduled to allow neighboring Public schools participate in every host club played by the Pros.  Two Juniors (one boy and one girl) will then be selected to join the Grand Finale. The development of young golfing talent is paramount if we are to see a Kenyan on the leader board of one of the major PGA tours,” said Dr Evans Kidero
