2012 Lowveld Pro-am champion Christian Mbanga will captain a side that includes top amateur golfers Clive Nguru, Biggie Chibvuri and Thembelani Mvundla.
After finishing fourth the last time at the biannual golf challenge at Benoni Lake in South Africa, the Zimbabwean team is aiming to scoop the title when the tournament tees off in October.
Speaking to Standardsport, Mbanga expressed optimism that they will do well at the All Africa Games Golf championships.
“We are definitely going out there to win, this time we have got a very strong team, we are all at the top of our game and if we play well then we have a chance to beat South Africa who are the team to beat,” he said.
Mbanga added: “We have not officially started training but we are training individually and we will go into camp immediately after the Hillside Masters set for next weekend.”
Mbanga was in scintillating form earlier this year at the Zone Six Games in Namibia where Zimbabwe finished second to South Africa.
The All Africa Games Golf Championships will see about 15 African countries battling for supremacy.
