According to the Uganda Breweries Limited Marketing Director, Juliana Kaggwa, there is hope that these series befit the golfing family, given the fact that more than five golf courses have been involved with close to Shs 100M to be won in prizes and cash.

Through the series we hope to build a strong connection with customers for our partners in this venture and for Tusker Malt Lager. There is no question we are in great company with the biggest brands on the market on board this journey, and for that our commitment over the next weeks is to deliver a memorable golf experience
