A Dutch golfer based in Kigali, Peter Doorest, put up an excellent performance to claim the inaugural edition of Muganza-Kivu Tea Open on Saturday at the new 9-hole course at Kigali Golf Club in Nyarutarama.

The event was organised by Kigali Golf Club in partnership with Nyaruguru District-based tea producing firm and it attracted a total of 130 golfers, including a delegation of 53 golfers from Uganda’s Entebbe Golf Club.

Doorest who is handicapped 19 was the overall winner of the one-day event returning 65 net.

“I am very surprised because I thought I was not playing well at all, I started well but in the second 9-hole it didn’t go well and in the end I thought I had no chance, so I am very honoured and I think the club captain should have a look on my handicap,” Doorest said after receiving the title.

In handicap 0-9, veteran golfer David Rwiyamirira won the title after returning 70 net with Benjamin Mukisa scooping the title in handicap 10-18 after returning 69 net while Samu Mburu won the title in the handicap 19-28 with 67 net.

In the seniors’ category, Andrew Nkwandi retuned 75 net to win the title while Lietar Carine won the ladies’ title after returning 69 net.
