Beautiful. Elegant. Smart. Confident. Stylish…are just some of the words one can use to describe Martha Vincent, the outgoing Lady Captain, Karen Country Club. She is a force to reckon with: hardworking, industrious yet still, an extremely lovable and joyous human.
After a successful tenure as the Lady Captain, Ms Martha Vincent hosted family, friends and members of the prestigious Karen Country Club and members from other clubs as well to her Lady Captains Prize Giving and Dinner party on Saturday 29th October 2022 to mark the end of her term.

Over the last 5 years, Kenya has steadfastly grown and made strides in the development of golf and is now being widely recognized as Africa’s premier golf destination. Former First Lady Margaret Kenyatta who is a huge supporter of the sport, while attending the Magical Kenya Ladies Open earlier this year, encouraged more women to take up professional golfing saying the sport presents opportunities just like athletics and other disciplines. “The increased number of women participating this season also demonstrates the potential and opportunity available for more women to join this exciting career,” the First Lady said.
