DStv to televise the Barclays Kenya Golf Open 2016

DStv will air the Kenya Golf Open, the premier golf event in the country, on its Superport channels giving the tournament a much needed boost in stature as it is beamed across the region.

The Barclays Kenya Open will be held at the Karen Golf Club this week, kicking off on Thursday, 17 March 2016.

It will end on Sunday, 20th.

Local hopes for a first win at the tournament will be carried by Dismas Indiza who finished 28th last year on the same course as well as Greg Snow and the out of form Jacob Okello.

Okello is famous for narrowly losing out the 1998 Kenya Open in a playoff at the Muthaiga Golf Course.

Multichoice which has replicated its Randburg Supersport studios at Jamhuri Park will spend about Sh3m to produce and transmit the tournament and will also spend another Sh4.5m to help offset the organizers cost of putting together the tournament.

The company will also fly in Supersport golf commentator Richard Maspero to be part of the production team.

Multichoice has also invested in several outdoor broadcasting trucks which will likely be on site to capture the action.
