The Elizabeth Wuraola Ojo memorial Golf Â Â Tournament, has become an annual tradition in the annals of Toyota (Nigeria) Limitedâ€™s diary of activities.
The company’s resolve to consistently sponsor the tournament transcends supporting the game of golf in Nigeria; it is its own way of immortalizing theÂ Chairmanâ€™s late wife, Chief (Mrs.) Elizabeth Wuraola Ojo whose efforts and meritorious contributions paved the way for the steady growth and overwhelming acceptance of the Toyota brand in Nigeria.
It is in celebration of the glowing of a woman whose industry watered the ground upon which the towering Toyota leadership edifice in the challenging Nigerian auto market is solidly built.
Beyond that, it is worth noting that during her life time, her raw enthusiasm for the game was demonstrated through her unflinching support to her darling husband Chief M. Ade Ojo OON the indefatigable Chairman of Toyota (Nigeria) limited who up till now continually mentors the development of the game in the country.
As a tribute to her memory, Toyota (Nigeria) Limited introduced the Most Amiable Woman of the Tournament prize in the tournament.
This yearâ€™s tournament will kick off on Wednesday 11th November with Women teeing off the event. Men will display their mastery of game on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th November.
The climax of the vent is a colorful gala night which holds on 14th November, 2009 where deserving winners will be presented with their awards and gifts. Over 30 trophies are to be won during the gala night.
As customary of the company we will be putting up a Land Cruiser Prado as hole-in-one prize with sponsorship of Hole 15.
Some of our premium models like the Hiace, Hilux, Camry and the Corolla will also be on display while the tournament lasts. The objective is to afford guests and players alike to have a feel f the vehicles.
Respected Gentlemen of the Press, we hope that you shall accord this yearâ€™s tournament your usual support and professional treatment in order to garner brand equity for Toyota as we look forward to receiving you at the tee off and gala night.
