Nigerian Golfers Laud Michael Adeojo’s New Elizade Golf Resorts
TOP Nigerian golfers have lauded the newly opened Elizade Golf Resorts in Ilara Mokin, Ondo State, owned by Ondo born High Chief and Chairman of Elizade Motors, Chief Michael Adeojo. The 18-hole golf resort is set to become the latest addition to Nigeria’s list of growing golf courses.
The course, which is just about 20 minutes from Akure, the Ondo State capital, was developed by Chief Ade Ojo, Chairman of Toyota Nigeria Limited. It is located in a university town and is the first and only golf facility in cocoa-producing Ondo State. Moses Anabui, one of the golfers privileged to have recently played the course, described it as one of the best courses in Nigeria.
Anabui said the layout took away his breath because of its sheer aesthetics which surpassed expectation. Even before the character of Elizade is fully put to test, golfers who have hit the course are quick to compare it with IBB International Golf and Country Club, Abuja and Le Meridien Ibom Golf Resort, Uyo, the only Nigerian courses with world class attributes.
One undeniable fact is that this addition would redistribute the tournament pattern across the country as it aims to win over the well-heeled Nigerian golfing niche when it finally opens its doors for business. Such is the elegance of the course that its 18 greens and fairways are said to be in peak condition and will tempt golfers to want to play 36 holes golf in a day, no matter the conditions.
