Men on course as Ikeja Golf Club Captain’s Day enters business end
The Ikeja Golf Club for the past five days has witnessed some of the best golf played in the country so far this year. With professionals and their amateur counterparts strutting their stuff at the hallowed ground, the Ikeja Golf Club has been in festive mood.
It is the Ikeja Golf Club Captain’s Day, a week-long activity in celebration of the end of the tenure of Club captain, Mr. Bola Temowo, who was elected captain in March 2018.
The competition teed off on Monday with the caddies and staff competition and continued on Tuesday with the Professionals and the Veterans’ tourney. On Wednesday, the ladies took the course, while a Special Kitty held yesterday.
The men’s competitions marking the Ikeja Golf Club Captain’s Day begin today at the club grounds located at the Ikeja Government Reservation Area (GRA) in Lagos.
Today, golfers with Handicap 18 – 30 will be in action, while those with Handicap 0 – 17 will play tomorrow.
Excited by the caliber of players that turned up for the event and the quality of golf on display, the outgoing captain, Temowo, has thanked all members of the club for their support during his captaincy.
Speaking at the opening on Monday, he said: “The celebration of today is not just for me as the Captain but also in celebration of all committee members, whose teamwork and cooperation I have enjoyed throughout my tenure.
“I want to appreciate all the time and hard work they invested in ensuring the smooth running and progress of our Club. I couldn’t have had a successful tenure without them. And for this I am grateful.”
