The Kenya Open is a golf tournament in Kenya and has been an event on the European-based Challenge Tour schedule since 1991, with the exception of the 1994 event. It was founded in 1967, and has been held at Muthaiga Golf Club near Nairobi every year except 1968, 2004–08, and 2013–16, when the tournament was held at Karen Country Club.
The title has been won by some of Europe’s Ryder Cup golfers, including Seve Ballesteros, Ian Woosnam, Ken Brown and Christy O’Connor Jnr, as well as future Masters champion Trevor Immelman. The most successful player is England’s Maurice Bembridge, who recorded three victories between 1968 and 1979.
