All roads lead to Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort in Kigo this Saturday as the prestigious Serena 63 series returns with the August Mug of Mugs event.
The event that will serve the second quarterly order of merit competition, will also give both participants to win prizes.
It was full house in the last round back in May and many walked away with awards from three categories.
These included the Quarterly Order of Merit, Members Order of Merit, and Mug of Mugs podium, on top of guest winners.
Participants are faced with the task of completing a minimum of 36 18-hole rounds of golf.
The tough journey on the club’s par-72 lakeside course calls for resilience from golfers. Getting the job done comes with rewards from I&M Bank whose slogan reads “We are on your side,” preaching the bank’s proven solidarity with the game.
Annette Nakiyaga, Head of Marketing & Corporate communications at I&M Bank, said: “We stretch beyond putting prizes in place, we try to go out of our way in every way possible to ensure this competition scales the greatest of heights.”
“As we continue to ensure this turns out be the best golfing experience in the country, it’s also an opportunity to practically engage our customers as we deliver on I&M Bank’s purpose of empowering prosperity, with the aim of transforming lives across the region.”
Last quarter’s winners included Basa Bose, who won the nearest to the pin prize, George Nkya who walked away with the longest drive award, as well as Jordan Van Rooyen, the juniors’ category winner. Charles Hamya soared above the rest in the guests’ group with 39points, while Maria Odido won the ladies’ category with 30 points.
Ronnie Kasirye won the Men’s Group A with 33 points, while Innocent Nahabwe bossed the Men’s Group B with 30 points. The biggest winner on the day was Leenah Halai who was the last man standing to emerge the Men’s overall winner in the Mug of Mugs.
This year’s winners who will be announced in December, willl compete at the highly sought-after I&M tournament in Kenya
