Okpata Ozuora Memorial tourney drags Nigeria’s best to Aba
Things are happening in Aba. Abia State’s most popular city is about to witness an influx of the best golfers from across the country.
The occasion is the Okpata Ozuora Memorial Golf Tournament, a competition being put together in memory of a late prominent son of the commercial city, Chief Mike Nkwoji. It will hold on September 25 and 26 at the golf section of Aba Sports Club in 1926.
According to the planning committee of the yearly event, about 150 men and women golfers are expected in the tournament designed for 0-28 handicap players.
The committee revealed that players are expected to arrive in Aba on September 25 for cocktails, while the tournament will tee-off by 7.00 a.m. on Saturday.
The closing ceremony and prize presentation will hold on Saturday, the same day slated for the commissioning of an ultra-modern Caddies Hut built-in memory of the deceased to support the club.
Apart from the exciting moments awaiting the players, they will also win quality prizes, as well as free accommodation for lady golfers and winners in the 10 categories.
The late Chief Nkwoji was a philanthropist and active sportsman, who contributed substantially to the development of Aba Sports Club, as well as the Enugu Golf Course.
