Chichi Alamu relishes 43 years golfing experience
A past lady Captain of Ikeja Golf Club, philanthropist and elegant golfer, Chichi Charles Alamu, has described her 43 years of playing golf, a game has taken her round Africa and beyond the shores of the continent, as the best part of her life. And to show her gratitude to the sport, she says she has started giving back to the society and supporting fellow ladies.
Alamu, who said golf is a game for all ages, young and old, men and women and very good in the development of a player’s mental and physical state, added that her mission is now to encourage fellow women to embrace the game.
The immediate past South Western Zonal Vice President of Lady Golfers Association of Nigeria (LGAN) is one of the backers of the Leopard Golf Tournament and Beauty Pageant.
She is also supporting the fourth edition of the event slated for Arsenal Golf Club Obinze, Owerri with five Crystals.
The champion with an enviable record of 21 club championships titles in her 43 years golfing experience has, in recent times, given sewing machines and cash to rent shops to ladies in the golfing system.
Recently, the coordinator of the unique Leopard tourney, Sumbo Oshile, described the CEO of OLATCHI Ltd as an exemplary ambassador of the objective in focus.
“Madam Chichi Alamu is a good example of the objective of the Leopard Golf Tournament and Beauty Pageant, which is using golf to empower women. She has been supporting this event and also been putting smiles on the faces of several ladies,” she said.
