GARY PLAYER DESIGN EXCITED TO OPEN NEW KIGALI GOLF COURSE IN RWANDA

Kigali Golf Course (KGC), a Gary Player designed 18-hole course located in Rwanda, in Central Africa is set to open in early Spring 2020 to coincide with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). Initially an uninspiring 9-hole course limited to local golfers, it is now being extended to a challenging 18-holes that will allow for Kigali to host larger regional professional competitions and crowds that follow these pro golfers. KGC is a club for all golfers and members will find benefit in the added amenities.

Apart from the fantastic golf and health club additions, KGC resides in one of the best locations for getting a true Rwandan experience. The Singita Kwitonda Lodge is the perfect vacation hideaway while visiting KGC. After a morning on the course, Kwitonda will fill the afternoon with breathtaking hiking adventures through the Volcano National Park and lead remarkable experiences trekking the native mountain gorillas through Rwanda’s wild rainforests. The conservation of Rwanda’s gorillas and wildlife is at the center of the countries unparalleled rise as a travel destination.

As the capital of Rwanda, Kigali has greatly expanded over the years it is becoming a center for not only tourist exploration through the magnificent rainforests but also a location for greater world political conversations. In June 2020, just a month after the grand opening of KGC, the CHOGM will be held at the Kigali Convention Centre. Leaders from all 53 Commonwealth countries are expected to attend to discuss how the contemporary Commonwealth can transform societies through values of democracy, multilateralism, sustainable development, and empowerment of women and youth.

“Gary Player Design takes pride in its commitment to social and sustainable development within its international portfolio that includes more than 400 courses across the globe in over 38 counties” stated Marc Player, CEO of Black Knight International. “This city is vibrant, welcoming and holds a host of opportunities from the golf club to the environmental and wildlife conservation activities.”

I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but I am resolute in my desire to play many more rounds in 2021 because I believe that golf keeps me young and is vital to my longevity! How many rounds do you hope to play this year?

@garyplayer with some New Year's inspiration for you 💬

Happy New Year’s Eve. 2020 has been a very challenging year and one that I'm happy to see the back of. However, I have a lot to be thankful for. My heart is with anyone grappling with the unforeseen difficulties of 2020. May 2021 bring increased peace and prosperity. All my best.

I love this photo as it reminds me of when I was steadfast in getting stronger as I knew it was the key to being competitive. It also reminds me of a time when world class gyms were not available at every tournament (hotel rooms and stairways saw many of my training sessions).
