The July edition of the monthly event was held Friday at Kigali Golf Club, in Nyarutarama.

“I prepared for this win for the last three years,” Manyara said briefly after receiving the trophy. He also commended the event sponsors, Bralirwa Ltd, and the hosts, Kigali Golf Club, for their consistency in organising the event since its inauguration in January.

The longest drive award in men’s category went to Benjamini Mukisa, while Jenny Linda scooped the award in women’s category. The latter also claimed the award for the nearest to the pin for ladies.
