The All Africa Challenge Tour (AACT) has received a boost from Kenya Orient Insurance Company of KShs 600,000 on 22 May. The money will go towards the hosting expenses of the continent’s premier ladies golf tournament to be held at Muthaiga Golf Club from June 8th.
“We have been anchor sponsors for the Kenya Ladies Golf Union (KLGU) for two years now, which includes a sponsorship of the juniors at the Rose Naliaka Golf Academy. We believe sponsorship for the AACT will help our golfers rightfully compete with the best on the continental stage,” said Kenya Orient Insurance Head of Marketing Gabriel Kuria.
Thanking Kenya Orient Insurance for the sponsorship, Dorcas Mbalanya, chairman of the ACCT organizing committee, announced that 18 teams will participate at Muthaiga in June – making it one of the biggest amateur golf tournaments in Kenya – and second to the Kenya Open as an international event.
