The ultimate showdown of the 2021 NCBA Golf Series takes place today at the par 72 Karen Country Club.

The event will be the 23rd on the 2021 NCBA Golf Series Calendar, where 105 players who qualified to play through the 21 seniors' events in the Series, will be battle for the overall Series title.

The playing field comprises five top finishers; the Overall winner, Men's winner, Men's runner-up, Ladies' winner, and Ladies' runner-up, from each of the 21 events.

Among them are three junior golfers who emerged overall winners in their respective clubs' legs of the Series.

The three are 11-year-old Cherono Kipkorir, who won at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club, 11-years-old Mumbi Gatu, who was crowned overall winner at the Limuru Country Club and 12-year-old Nathan Mwangi, who won at the Karen event.

Mwangi also emerged victorious at Karen during the two-day Junior golf tournament held in August when he took the winner's spot in the 12-year-olds category.

The Series, which teed off in January at Thika Golf Club, has seen close to 3,000 golfers taking part across the participating golf clubs, making it one of the most successful events in the 2021 Kenyan Golf calendar.

NCBA Group Managing Director John Gachora said; “We are thrilled to be holding our Grand Finale this Friday as a culmination of what has been an extremely successful golf series. To have the top players from across the Series battling it out for top honours at one of Kenya's most pristine golf courses is the pinnacle of all the work the entire team has put."
