The first golf event for the Institute of Public Finance will be held at Ruiru Sports Club.

Through research, education, and capacity building, the Institute of Public Finance (IPF), a Nairobi-based independent, apolitical, and nonreligious think tank, aims to advance the concepts of transparent public finance management systems.

Over 250 top amateur golfers across the country are expected to grace the inaugural Institute of Public Finance (IPF) Golf Tournament at the Par 73 Ruiru golf course this weekend.

Some of the big names expected to brave the greens include Jefferson Kariuki, Ruth G. Kamau, Chege Kariuki, and Dr. K. Laibuta. The quartet has been impeccable in the previous tournaments held at the 18-hole course, and they will be out to battle for top honors.

“At IPF, we are passionate about sports and their importance in fostering social cohesion. We believe that golf provides an opportunity for people to interact and network away from their normal office setting as they enjoy amazing courses. We look forward to having a good time with all the players for long-term engagements,” noted IPF CEO James Muraguri.

He added that IPF will continue to sponsor such tournaments in the future as a way of building the next generation of golfing talent while supporting national conversations on climate change and budget priorities.
