MKO returns as players bid to secure head start on Race to Costa de sol
Two-time champion Esther Henseleit will highlight the Magical Kenya Open that will be staged in February 2023 as the German seeks to defend her title at Vipingo Ridge, Kilifi County.
Preparations for the event are underway as organisers and Vipingo Ridge aim to make the only women's professional golf competition in East Africa a spectacular tournament.
This will be the third time the tournament is held as Kenya is once again setting the stage for the season-opener of the Ladies European Tour in the February 2-5 event at the 18-hole Baobab Course.
This is the continent’s sole PGA-accredited course and will be preceded by a Pro-Am on February 1. A field of 96 professional players will bid to secure a head start on the Race to Costa del Sol.
Defending champion Henseleit said: “I’m really looking forward to going back to Kenya and defending my title. It’s a special place for me because it’s where I won my first professional tournament and I’ve always found there’s a great atmosphere with many friendly faces. A great way to start the season.”
