Entebbe club delivers back to schools vibe at Tee of Tees

There have been several innovations, thinking and stand-out ideas for tournaments at Entebbe Golf Club (EGC), especially over the past seven years.

But, there is probably none that has come to perfection like the ‘Back to School’ theme which guided conversations of the June Tee of Tees that happened on Saturday.

A field of 189 golfers graced the par-71 course for action and uniquely, a litany of uniforms from their former schools took over the gardens of the EGC clubhouse during a marvelous prize-giving ceremony.

That 19th hole ceremony, where Horace Rwakabureete was crowned as the overall winner, had golfers representing their former schools.

EGC captain Serwano Walusimbi was smart like an A-Level student from King’s College Budo, the event guest, Godfrey Bagalana, took it a notch higher to wear a prefect tag on the Kiira College Butiki uniform.

There were uniforms for Namilyango College, Mvara SSS, Ndejje SSS, Nabumali High School, just to mention but a few.

“I decided to support an Entebbe school too,” said EGC lady captain Jovia Tugume, who turned up in Gateway Nursery & Primary School Entebbe cardigan. The theme was rubber-stamped by comedian Teacher Mpamiire, who created his well-known classroom environment, rewarding Tugume and Michael Monne as the ‘school’s best dressed students’. On the side, there was a ‘school canteen’where ‘students’ fetched white porridge in plastic cups.

Notwithstanding performances from Karole Kasita and Fefe Bussi, the theme had a bigger appeal towards the community for EGC. They announced a plan to fundraise for Entebbe’s St Joseph’s Primary School Katabi in honour of MTN’s Yello Care activities.

“Our initial target was around scholastic materials and sanitary wear but we need to build a waterborne toilet and we need about Shs80m. This is a school that has more than 1,000 pupils and they have only one functioning toilet for that number,” announced Walusimbi.

EGC’s franchise, Katogo, whose trustees are Edward Kabuuchu and Kiryowa Kiwanuka, committed Shs20m to the cause while Kabalaza stated Shs10m to it.

“To give to a person you do not know is the heart. So I encourage all of you people, the golfers, to support this cause because it is an extremely good cause,” said Kiwanuka.

Monne and Tugume were rewarded by MTN general manager business intelligence Kenneth Kiddu, with Shs500,000 each and they both decided to add it to the donation pool Katabi.

“With many of the current building structures in a dilapidated state, efforts are being taken to rehabilitate them in a bid to create a conducive studying environment,” said MTN Momo’s chief strategy and stakeholder officer Stephen Mutana.

The evening went on for long as DJ Shock B, clad in a Namilyango College uniform, had his discs and playlists in utmost control.
