This Saturday, February 25, Uganda’s leading premium beer, Tusker Malt will tee off a series of golf tournaments that are set to take place in different parts of the country.

The first of the series is Toro Club’s Venus Open slated for this weekend in Fort Portal. The series follows the Tusker Malt Uganda Open that took place at the Serena Hotel Golf Resort and Spa in Kigo late last year.

Speaking about supporting golf outside Kampala, Tusker Malt Brand Manager, Elizabeth Mutamuliza spoke to the brand’s commitment to making golf more inclusive and accessible.

“For us, the ultimate goal is about making golf accessible and inclusive for golfers and to also interest non-golfers to join the sport. We believe the game should be accessible to people throughout the different corners of the country,” she said.

“We can’t fail to recognise the fact that some of the best golfers in the country started out in upcountry clubs. An example is Joseph Cwinyaai the captain of the Uganda golf team and a former winner of the Tusker Malt Uganda Open comes from Toro Club where we shall be this weekend. We hope to see this cycle repeat itself as we support the game across the country,” she added.

The format for The Venus Open will be medal and it expects to attract golfers from different parts of the country.

“I cannot tell you how excited we are as Toro Club to host this open. The club is in good condition. We are ready for Saturday,” says Bernard Baguma, Captain Tooro Club.
