Vet Lab Sports Club prides itself in being the bedrock on which great golfing talent is identified, nurtured and grown. In keeping with its reputation as “The Friendliest Club”, whether social or golf-playing members, members’ guests or visitors, you are assured a warm welcome at Vet Lab sports club.
The Veterinary Laboratory Sports Club commonly referred to as Vet Lab and widely revered as a golf club has been in existence since 1923. It was founded by one Eric Tilley. It consisted of 3 holes and a thatched Banda for a clubhouse. The course included 9 greens and fairways, but 18 tees, giving a slight variation to the playing of the back nine holes.
Today the Club is one of the leading golfing and recreational facilities in Kenya. The 18-hole Golf course consists of well-constructed greens with a careful choice of hybrid blend bent-grass which is compatible with the weather at VETLAB. The greens have been constructed in line with the USPGA recommendations and drainage has been put in place. The total putting surface of all 18 greens is over 10,000 square metres. Factors concerning smoothness, speed and receptiveness were a major consideration during the construction.
Vet Lab is currently the only golf course in Kenya constructed on public land and therefore its membership is open to every Kenyan within the provisions of the club’s constitution.
