100 Golfers Battle for Lakowe Lakes Club’s Championship Title
Nigeria’s prestigious golf club, Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Club in Lagos will this weekend host its members to the 6th edition of the club’s championships.
Over 100 players have signed up for the epic event which is usually graded by golfing categories and overall winner judged by gross score at the end of 36 holes play.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, December 4 and Sunday, December 5, 2021.
The club’s Manager, Femi Olagbenro, said midweek that the course is in its best shape and hopes the best player is rewarded at the end of the two-day encounter.
“The Club Championship is for us, the crowning event of the golfing calendar, among other things. It attracts the best players, fun, gifts and most especially new players bring their best game to try and upturn the existing playing records. It’s an electric atmosphere,” he noted.
Olagbenro said, Lakowe Lakes prides itself on maintenance and hence the players showing up for the event should brace up to have the best fairways and greens to play on.
“Hoping for a clement weather, the course has been put in the best possible condition for the Club Championship,” the manager added.
Defending Champion, Peter Eben-Spiff, who is one of the few Nigerian amateur players ranked on the World Amateur Golf Ranking, will be hoping to hold down perennial rival Tunji Adebayo and others.
Other players expected at the event includes, Fatumata Coker (ladies defending champion), Njide Ndili, Kim Tai Chul (Veteran’s defending champion), Dapo Akande, Ibiyemi Walter, Vitus Ezenwa, etc.
The championship would be rounded off with prize giving and award dinner on Sunday, December 5.
