Ruiru Sports Club at the weekend launched a course irrigation project at the golf course as the club gears towards establishing a world-class club that will host regional and international events. 

The renovation of the course that began in May 2019 has already cost the club over Sh 30 million and involved installation of a water pump and golf irrigation system at the par 72 course that spans 246 acres. 

The system will see an increase in sprinklers and all-year better playing conditions

The project was officially launched by the Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General Githii Mburu. In his remarks, Mburu encouraged the golfers to continue engaging with the KRA and to be tax compliant. He observed that this will go a long way in supporting sustainable economic development of the country.

“The renovation of the course will enable Ruiru Sports Club to host international tournaments attracting revenue for development,” said Mburu. 

He added: “KRA believes in partnerships with both public and private organisations towards strengthening this partnership for better development of our country. 

Our partnership with Ruiru Sports Club gives us an opportunity to interact with out taxpayers and enables us to facilitate them on tax compliance.”

The Club Captain Peter Mwaura said the club aims to host international events in the next three to five years. 

“This project will help the club in its ambition to host regional and international competitions while attracting top talents across Africa,” said Mwaura said, adding: “The irrigation project was financed through members’ subscriptions.”
