The Karen Country Club is a family oriented club, founded in 1937 and prides itself in being one of the oldest golf clubs in Kenya. A large part of the 18-hole course was built on the former coffee estate developed by the Danish pioneer Karen Blixen, whose life and times were depicted in the lyrical film `Out of Africa`. Indeed, the shade trees from her coffee plantation still dominate parts of the golf course, eighty years after they were planted.
The course is superbly maintained with greens built to the Professional Golf Association (PGA) standards. The Club has been host to the prestigious Barclays Kenya Open for the past three consecutive years. Despite Nairobi`s temperate climate, you can play golf 365 days in a year in comfort, an intangible asset that few golf courses in the world can claim. The setting of our golf course is serene; with the Ngong hills as a backdrop, a rich variety of trees, indigenous forest, flouring shrubs and fauna. The wetlands are a distinct environmental feature of our golf course and also home to thousands of birds and dik diks.

“It has become appealingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity”- Albert Einstein.
GEC is all set to put to rest the fears of Einstein. As a leading media& corporate events house we root ourselves to the belief that, we bind the industry together, every day. Whatever we do is a collective and connective initiative towards the betterment of our industry, humanity and society at large because at the end of each business day, we retire as human beings and every morning we wake up to do something special that makes us feel human while being human.
