Kenya Voted Africa’s Best Golf Destination


Kenya has been named Africa’s leading golfing destination.

Kenya has been recognized as Africa’s best-golfing destination. This announcement was made during the 7th Annual World Golf Awards Gala Ceremony held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Magical Kenya was nominated alongside Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa.

Karen Country Club was named Kenya’s Best Golf Course in 2020, with Royal Nairobi Golf Club, Muthaiga, Sigona, and Windsor Golf Hotel and Country club among the nominees.

The Great Rift Valley Lodge and Gold Resort was named Kenya’s Best Golf Hotel in 2020. Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, Thika Greens, and Leisure Lodge Beach and Gold Resort were among the nominees.

Commenting on this recognition, Kenya Tourism Board CEO, Betty Radier said “It is encouraging that Kenya has been able to develop golfing and now the entire world knows us as the best destination in Africa. We have indeed made incredible strides and we can only get better. We aim to be the best in the world now that we have conquered Africa,”

“As Kenya Tourism Board we have had an association with golf for a long time now because we believe in its ability to increase our tourism brand visibility globally and thereby attract tourists into the country. We will continue to be part of the sport to ensure that it achieves greater goals,” she added.

The Kenya Tourism Board has previously sponsored golf events and is the activating agency of the Magical Kenya Open Golf Championships which is part of the elite European Tour. This key event is held annually and preceded by the local Safari Golf Tour which allows professional players and amateurs an opportunity to prepare for their participation at the Magical Kenya Open.
