The Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) launched its second round of the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Championship in Windhoek, today.

The event is set to start in October this year until next year with the dates still to be communicated in due course. The first round of the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Championship was held from last year October to June this year.

Five countries took part in the event and the number is expected to increase, according to Ian Stevenson, Manager for sponsoring and events at NBL. “Although I cannot officially confirm that the same countries will definitely participate and the countries that took part in the first round are, Kenya, Seychelles, Swaziland, Tanzania and Uganda.

All indications are there that they will sign on next week. Windhoek Lager has distribution channels and this will then bring the participating countries to 10 for this year’s championship,” said Stevenson.

Hugh Mortimer, General Manager at Windhoek Golf and Country Club said he is delighted to see the golf championship returning to the country club once again. “We can only thank NBL and especially Stevenson for the initiatives. This tournament will become without doubt a major Amateur tournament on the African golf calendar similar to the existing All Africa and Zone V1 tournament,” said Mortimer.
