The DOAM Foundation Charity golf tournament qualifier holds in Lagos



Qualifier for the eighth edition of the Daniel  Ogechi Akujobi Memorial Foundation (DOAMF) Golf Tournament will hold tomorrow at the Golf Section of Ikoyi Club 1938 in Lagos. 

Participants at the qualifier will be hoping to pick a spot in the final of the event billed for February 3, 2018 at the same venue.‎ 

Thousands of lives have been touched through the annual golf event that pulls over 200 golfers together to commit to charitable projects through the DOAMF platform and, organisers are looking forward to another exciting outing this year.


Pat Bassey, the chairman of the Organising Committee said that the event has built a tradition of excellence that they are committed to sustain and improve on with each succeeding edition.

“We have people who come out yearly to volunteer and serve passionately because of what the event means to us all in the golfing community. We have golfers who also are committed to be part of the event despite their tight schedules, being evidence of   strong identification with our objective of bettering our society through the platform.” He stated.

The funds generated through the DOAMF Charity Golf events have been channeled to support social causes in the specific areas of education, health and medical intervention within needy families and communities.

Bassey also highlighted some of the projects embarked on with donations and monies realised from the events in the past: “some of the projects that our seven years of sponsorship has helped commission include, Scholarship Awards, Renovation/Rehabilitation of health centres in rural communities (Mowe in Ogun State and Amaimo in Imo State), Building and Equipping an Accident and Trauma centre at Mowe in Obafemi Owode LGA, Ogun State, Sickbay, Lavatory and library projects (in various schools across the country), Skills Acquisition for Widows and Mothers of Vulnerable Children, and Free Medical Screening and Treatment for the less privileged in rural communities, amongst others.

“The interest to be part of the tournament continues to be overwhelming among corporate and individual sponsors and golfers and, we are obliged to do our utmost to accommodate as many as possible. As is usual, we do all we can to ensure the best possible tournament day experience, whilst keeping to the underlying purpose of giving back to a society we all belong to,” he stated.
