‘With golf, you don’t need other workout,’ says Adesiyan



The former Lady Captain of the Ibadan Golf Club (IGC), Otolola Adesiyan has explained why she cannot do without the game of golf, describing the sport as the secret of her youthful look.

The wife of the former Police Affairs Minister, Alhaji Abdul Jelili Adesiyan, who is always among the winners in most tournaments played recently at IGC, revealed that she chose golf ahead of other sports introduced to her because of the all-encompassing nature of the game, the all round benefits to the golfer, including fitness.

“It is mentally, emotionally and physically advantageous to the person playing it because when playing golf regularly, you do not need any other form of body exercise. A round of golf touches every part of body”.


She also described golf as the most addictive sport, which makes it difficult for whoever goes into it to stop playing.

“Whatever you do, you will still create time for golf. And with my age, I don’t have kids again to look after, so this gives me time to play golf and as you keep playing, you keep improving.

“That is why I have been winning prizes regularly now. I have been playing for 13 years consistently; my husband joined two years after and this makes it easy for me because all the family members play golf.

“We travel together all the time and we play wherever we go. It gives me an atmosphere to combine family and business management with it.

“Again, once you are a good golfer, you can manage every other aspect of life well because it is called game of life.

“I was Lady Captain of Ibadan Golf Club from 2013 to 2015 with many laudable and landmark achievements,” she said.
