80 golfers for Southern Sun Ikoyi tournament
Eighty golfers are expected to take part in the 2018 Southern Sun Ikoyi Golf Tournament, which tees off at the Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate on November 16.
The tournament, which is in its seventh edition, will feature players nominated by corporate sponsors representing various sectors of the economy.
The event is seen as of the strategic plans developed by the luxury hotel to reinforce its commitment to the promotion of sporting activities, relaxation and networking within its community.
Speaking ahead of the tournament, the General Manager, Southern Sun Ikoyi, Mark Loxley, thanked the usual sponsors, EKEDC, Zenith Bank, Diamond Bank, DHL, amongst others, and new partners, KLM, Air Namibia and Kenya Airways for their support.
He said plans were in top gear to ensure that partners and stakeholders of the fiesta have a truly memorable and fun day at this year’s event.
“The 2018 Southern Sun Ikoyi Golf Tournament Day is one of the best ways that we can have our esteemed customers escape the daily chores of a hectic schedule and instead, do something healthy and socially worthy to strengthen the ties of our business community through sports and leisure,” he said.
The Sales and Marketing Manager, Southern Sun Ikoyi, Ubong Nseobot, said: “The golf tournament is a significant event within the hotel’s calendar. It is not a commercial event, but a corporate social responsibility activity aimed at giving back to the community within which it operates.”
“Proceeds from the tournament would be given to the Arrows of God Orphanage, which has been the hotel’s adopted charity organisation for the past nine years,” she stated.
