The Chairman of Kenya Golf Union on 20th June 2020 lifted the ban on handicaps, running of organised competitions and reciprocation.
‘We would therefore like to reinstate handicaps in the country and allow competitions, as long as these are held with utmost care to avoid congregation of any kind. Clubs are advised to announce results of any competition using means that do not require golfers to congregate in the club house. Clubs are also now free to allow reciprocation or fourballs if they are able to do so while maintaining the same due care.’ Said Mr. Murage.
