A partnership with the Karen Country Club in 2017 led to the creation of the KCB Karen Masters, bringing together a great mix of professional and amateur players from the local and international scene. The success of the 2017 and 2018 tournaments spurred the bank to renew its partnership with the Karen Country Club for the 2019 KCB Karen Masters to be played from 27th - 30th June 2019.
The 'KCB Road to Masters', a five-leg series played in different parts of the country, is currently ongoing, giving amateur golfers a chance to play in the 3rd edition of KCB Karen Masters.
This is the 2nd time around the event is part of the Sunshine Tour, Africa’s premier membership organization for touring professional golfers. The tour is one of the six leading men’s tours that make up the International Federation of PGA Tours, which includes the PGA Tour, the European PGA Tour, the Japan Golf Tour, the PGA Tour of Australasia, and the Asian Tour. As the title sponsor of the $150,000 tournament, KCB's partnership substantially expands the Sunshine Tour’s reach into sub-Saharan Africa.
