The only eighteen-hole golf club in the Lake Victoria and Rift Valley region is located in vicinity of the beautiful Mt. Elgon. The club was started in 1924 by the European settlers. The course was constructed in 1938, with Mr A.Q Roberts in charge.
The Kitale club’s course is green throughout the year, with its fairways comprising a mixture of indigenous and exotic grasses. As one plays, the colubus monkeys make an appearance.
The club plays to a par of 73 and measures 6,869 yards for men’s tees and 5,931 yards for women’s tees.
The Club was started in 1924. That year a group of European farmers requested for 4 hectares (10 acres) of land on which to build a Club house and 40 hectares (100 acres) for a golf course which was granted. The first ever horse and carriage to be introduced in Kenya was apparently brought by one of the European settlers living in Kitale. Fridays have remained club night since the club`s inception.
Golf is the Flag bearer of all events held at Kitale Club. Our course, which is very unique and challenging attracts most golfers countrywide and from our neighbouring Countries. Kitale Club golf course is the only 18holes course in the North Rift part of Kenya which is lovely and challenging, particularly the first nine holes. The course is well maintained.
Beautiful Mt.Elgon looms off in the distance and serves as the backdrop for Kitale club`s championship course. Kitale has the only eighteen-hole golf course in the Lake Victoria and western Rift Valley region and it is definitely top quality. As one visiting professional put it, “This is not a course for amateurs!“.
