Nigeria’s best golfers set for 16th Elizabeth Wuraola Ojo tourney
The 16th edition of the competition tees off next weekend at the prestigious State, a private course owned by Chief Michael Ade-Ojo.
The tournament will hold on November 8 and 9 on one of Africa’s best golf resorts, where the organisers, Toyota (Nigeria) Limited (TNL), have earmarked N5 million for the winner of the hole 13.
As usual, the tournament tees off on November 8 with the professionals starting their show by 7.00 a.m., while the amateurs, men and ladies, will take to the fray the next day from the same time.
According to the Manager, Public Relations and Advert, TNL, Mrs. Bukunola Ogunnusi, the sponsors’ objective is to preserve the memory of the Late Chief (Mrs.) Elizabeth Wuraola Ojo, and as it was in the previous editions, the Shot Gun System (SGS) would be used for the tournament.
She said, “One of the prizes to be won by golfers at the gala night is the Amiable Woman of the Tournament prize. This is a platform created by Toyota (Nigeria) Limited to further keep the vision of the deceased for the game of golf alive.
“It is also aimed at continually nurturing the legacy and virtue of industry amongst women golfers. Indeed, the prize is symbolic of the amiable nature of the departed woman of substance.”
She revealed that on November 9 evening, which is the second day of the event, the tournament will hit a crescendo with a gala night, where golfers that distinguished themselves in the tournament will receive their prizes and trophies.
Mrs. Ogunnusi also disclosed that this year’s edition would be fun-packed as golfers and guests would be entertained with enduring golfing experience that will be hard to miss.
She added that invitation would be sent to golfers from across the federation for enlistment on the alluring course.
