With I&M Bank’s support, this event can help Ugandan golfers reach their potential as they strive towards becoming professional players or rising stars in the sport.

Jacob Byamukama, the Chairman Entebbe Golf Club said that the goal for the Katogo Invitational Golf Series is for golfers of all skill levels to have a unique, enjoyable experience that emphasizes camaraderie and competition.

“Aside from providing a platform for professional players to showcase their skills, the series allows newcomers to experience a bit of the competitive spirit and take part in a fun, exciting event,” said Byamukama.

The quarterly series that started on 14 January 2023 will run up to 9 December 2023.
