The Singleton Challenge cemented its reputation as the outstanding event of the local golf calendar as the 2019 edition came to an end on Saturday night. And what an end it was.
The tastefully decorated Entebbe Club hosted a Season 3 Singleton Challenge finale which was nothing short of glamour as golfers and golf enthusiasts were treated to a plush ceremony.
The tournament which debuted on the sporting and social calendar in 2017 lived up to its billing as the place to find fascinating action on the course and breathtaking entertainment off it as a grueling day on the greensended with golfers retreating to retro heaven by one of the oldest bands in the land, Afrigo, who delivered several of their finest hits at the finale dinner.
The golfers danced and sung to the classic Afrigo songs, reminiscing on the good old days as many demanded for songs like Maria. It was long before the Entebbe golfers took to the stage and sung their favorites
The performance by Afrigo Band was certainly music to the ears of Richard Lutwama and Robert Busingye, the winning pair this year who overcame Andrew Atuhaire and Geoffrey Orach to continue a remarkable Singleton Challenge record of producing a new set of champions for each one of the three seasons it has been in existence.
“We set out to create something that will give us moments like these; unforgettable moments that have created a bond making us family throughout the three years. I cannot be more proud of what we have achieved,” said Annette Nakiyaga, Head of Luxury Portfolio, Uganda Breweries Limited.
The winning pair earned themselves an-all expenses paid trip to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic slated for January 2020. The event is one of the most prestigious golf tournaments and has featured players like Tiger Woodsin the past. The Singleton Challenge’s sponsors include Victoria Motors, CBA, Afrisafe Risk Partners, Serena Hotel, DStv, RwandAir, Pinnacle Security, Ekspreso, HTC and Street Club.
