Golf: Must Know Ahead Of Pepsi Independence Tournament

Crown Beverages Limited Launches has on Thursday morning launched the 9th Edition of the Pepsi Independence Golf Tournament.

This year’s edition will be held under the theme ‘Tee Off Against Breast Cancer’, with the proceeds from the tourney channelled to purchasing a Breast Cancer machine.

This initiative was revealed during the launch held at Sheraton Kampala Hotel.


About 150 golf players, both pros and armateurs are expected to take part different golf clubs across the country with prizes to be rewarded at the end of the tournament.

“October being the breast Cancer awareness month and the month when Uganda commemorates her 57th independence, CBL sought an opportunity for participants and consumers to both celebrate and embrace talent for community support and development geared towards fighting the Cancer scourge in Uganda through the golf sport,” Tracy Kakuru Otatina, Corporate Communications Manager CBL said in a briefing.

“Our 2019 theme for this golf tournament is Tee off against breast Cancer whose chief purpose is to procure a Cancer machine that will aid in early detection of all types of cancer because there still exists a gap in early detection support, hence fueling our decision to take on methods to deliver awareness through diagnosing the disease at an early stage.

Otatina called on for more partners, well-wishers, staff to take part in this good cause.
