This year's Magical Kenya Open championship will be held at the Karen Country Club in the capital city of Nairobi from November 12 to 15.
The tournament was initially to be held from March 12 to 15, but was postponed following the COVID- 19 pandemic.
“We held the first designated full European Tour title event last year and we were all happy with the success of it. We would like to keep the momentum going by hosting the second European Tour event this year,” said Chairman of the Kenya Open Golf Limited, Peter Kanyago.
“The Magical Kenya Open will be televised live all over the world just like it was last year. This will give the Kenyan tourism industry the impetus it requires to start rebuilding after the devastation caused by the global pandemic.”
The prize purse for the rescheduled Magical Kenya Open 2020 will be €1 million and is expected to have a field size of 144 players. Out of these, 12 will be from the 2019-2020 Safari Tour as well as six amateur golfers selected by the Kenya Golf Union.
“We look forward to working with Kenya Open Golf Limited, the tournament partners and everyone in the local region in staging another successful edition as part of our reshaped 2020 season,” said, the European Tour’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer International, Ben Cowen.
“We are very pleased to be able to keep the proud tradition of the Kenya Open going this November.”
