Construction has begun on a Sh40 billion golf estate situated near Eldoret town in Uasin Gishu County.

The development, which will be known as Sergoit Golf and Wildlife Resort, is set on 3,100 acres of pristine land about 15km north east of Eldoret and will involve construction of 2000 villas, an airstrip, three golf courses, a shopping mall, a five-star hotel and a private hospital.

The development will blend sports, recreational and tourist features that will make the first of its kind in Kenya, according to Joshua Chepkwony, the chairman of Sergoit Holdings – the firm behind the development.

Mr Chepkwony who was speaking during the ground-breaking ceremony held on Oct. 27 said: “Sergoit Golf and Wildlife Resort will be the first sports city to be set up in Kenya since independence. It will boost tourism in the Western Kenya region.”

The resort will be constructed in four phase with each phase taking about 12 months to complete. The first phase will involve the construction of 626 villas on 400 acres near the Sergoit Hill, a tree covered rocky outcrop dominating the flat landscape.

Phase two will involve the construction of an airstrip alongside an 18-hole golf course and a golf estate with villas on varying plot sizes, while a five-star hotel will be built in phase three.

The final phase, which will involve the development of retirement homes, is scheduled for completion in 2016.

The development, which has borrowed ideas from Tatu City, Thika Greens and Migaa Golf Estate in Kiambu, is expected to create employment for the local communities while encouraging sports tourism.
