A total of 128 golfers will grace round one of the Singleton Challenge series third edition scheduled for this Saturday at Entebbe Golf Club.  A few weeks ago, 218 golfers battled it out on the lush green of the Entebbe Club in a bid to make it to round one and only 128 managed to book their spots. 64 teams shall be competing for the number one spot in one of the most prestigious golfing tournaments in the nation. In the qualifiers, Wendy Angudeyo handicap 17 topped the women’s chats returning 65 net to win group A and enjoys the bigger odds into the weekend action. In men, all eyes will be on Ibrahim Bagalana who fired 68 gross to win in group A. “I am looking forward to the first round. I am ready to impress,’’ Bagalana, who also won the second Kitante open over the weekend noted. 2018 winning duo of Sheila Kesime and Peace Kabsweka were given a bye in the qualifier, but will be one of the sides to beat over the weekend. Having enjoyed an all-expense paid trip to the DP World Golf Tour Championship in Dubai – courtesy of Singleton, the duo will be eager for another trip. The Saturday event has many things to look up to as even non-golfers will enjoy the colorful prize giving at the nineteenth hole where Janzi Band will perform live shortly after the top performers receive their gongs. The eventual winners of this year’s Singleton Challenge will get a fully paid trip to the prestigious 2020 Dubai Desert Classic. Other prizes up for grabs include a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport for a lucky golfer that manages a hole- in- one. The tournament partners are: Singleton, RwandAir, Serena Hotels, Dstv, CBA Bank, Pinnacle Security, HTC, Ekpresso, Victoria Motors, Afrisafe Risk Partners and Street Club.
