Uganda Tourism Board [UTB] has partnered with Uganda Golf Union to promote golf tourism.
The partnership was announced Monday in a press conference at the Uganda Golf Club, Kitante.
In partnership with the Uganda Golf Union, UTB intends to promote Golf Tourism.
This starts with a joint promotion of the Uganda Golf Open Tour; which will traverse the whole country with the launch set to kick off in March 2019.
Officials from UTB signed an MoU with the Executives of the Uganda Gold Union (UGU), through which the former will be providing financial and logistical support to an upcoming golf tourney.
According to Association of Uganda Tour Operators, the launch set for March 30, will be held at the prestigious Lake Victoria Serena Golf Club, Kigo.
UTB CEO Stephen Asiimwe said most golf courses in Uganda are situated in places with tourism sites for example the source of the Nile in Jinja and Mt. Elgon is near golf clubs.
After the games, golfers can visit such areas, he said.
UGU President Innocent Kihika said Uganda is one of the best places to play golf from.
