A hearty congratulations to the Royal Tannahill Team 2022 for their impressive performance during the main tournament which started from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th April 2022. We emerged second joint with the Western regional team with 36 points following Muthaiga golf club who were the top team with 56points.
“Considering we finished fifth last year, coming out second this year is a pretty good finish and we are very proud of our performance. This year was special because we had a different team all together, new pairings, a new club pro and coach. We were sort of in a rebuilding stage and it worked in our favor. All teams had come prepared to whoop us but we are happy to have proved them wrong.” _ Steve Otieno
