Captain’s Statement

Dear Member,

 

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your overwhelming support over the past few months since I accepted to be your Captain! I have approached many members with sponsorship requests and I am deeply humbled by the positive response received so far.

 

The Easter weekend marks a very important chapter at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club, the prestigious Easter Invitational Golf Tournament dubbed the “Tannahill Shield” which is to be played between Friday 14th April and Sunday 16th April, 2017.  This is an amateur golf tournament that was inaugurated in February 1924 by the late Arthur C. Tannahill of the Royal Nairobi Golf Club (Captain-1924 and President-1928).

 

This year marks the 93rd edition of the tournament and as is the tradition, the host, Royal Nairobi Golf Club, has invited 8 other teams namely Karen, Limuru, Mombasa, Muthaiga, Sigona, Railway, Western Kenya and Vet Lab golf clubs to participate in the competition. Each team consists of 4 male pairs with each pair playing a “three way” foursome match play over 18 holes on Friday, 36 holes on Saturday and the final 18 holes on Sunday. A win earns a team 2 point, all square 1 point and of course a loss does not entitle you to any point. The team recording the most points over the three days is awarded the coveted “Tannahill Shield”.  The Royal team won the shield in 2014, 2015, 2016 and looks forward to making it another rare fete in the history of the tournament that Royal has won the shield for four continuous years. This achievement will definitely be the Captain’s delight!

 

Similar to last year, we shall also have the “Junior Easter Tournament” event commencing on Tuesday 11th April and ending on Wednesday 12th April.

 

In order to make this event successful, I wish to extend my utmost appreciations to the following 2017 Tannahill Shieldsponsors: Jamii Telecommunications Limited (JTL), Kenya Nuclear Electricity Board, Kengen, AAR, Apex Steel Limited, Coca-Cola and our always very supportive member, Sir Morris Njue.  Asanteni sana to all sponsors for your very kind generosity!

 

I wish to encourage all Royal members to turn out in large numbers to support the Royal team and ensure that the shield remains safe at the true “Home of Golf”!

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I take this opportunity to wish all the participating teams the very best in their quest for the Tannahill Shield and urge that we all embody the great sportsmanship spirit of camaraderie throughout the tournament period. I wish to assure you all that the Club’s management has made all the requisite preparations to ensure that you a have memorable moment at Royal.

 

Happy 2017 Tannahill Shield Tournament!

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Charles Omondi

Captain
