The British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) Golf society (BGS) held a Community Engagement Competition, against the Kenya Senior Golf Society (KSGS) at Nanyuki Sports Club Golf course on Sunday 9 June to help join the two golfing communities together.

Teeing off at 0900hrs, 16 members of BGS and 4 members of KSGS took part in the “Match Play” competition hosted and organised by the BGS Golf Captain, Staff Sergeant Rob Humphreys.

The 16 BGS members that took part (including 4 from the newly formed BGS ladies’ team), were matched up in 10 teams of 2, in order to have 4 ball competition against the KSGS.

During a very competitive competition, each team result had an effect on the eventual outcome of the competition. 

The competition ended in 4 wins for BATUK, 4 wins for KSGS and 2 draws, meaning the final outcome was an overall draw.
