Ikeja Golf Club unveils 50th anniversary plan

FOC West Invitational: Luka, Ajayi commend golfers



The management of Ikeja Golf Club has announced activities scheduled for the club’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The announcement was made at a press conference, which held in the Committee Room of the club at Ikeja GRA. The anniversary celebration, according to Mr. Bola Temowo, club captain, has as theme: “Half a Century of Growing Friendships through Golf”.

Among activities scheduled to hold in the coming month as part of the celebrations are a series of golf tournaments, including a Pro-Am tournament. The club, he also disclosed, will execute a number of projects aimed at improving the utility of the club.

In addition, said Temowo, the club will honour its founding fathers.

Temowo noted that the club has contributed to the society by forging long-lasting friendships that have withstood religious, political and ethnic cleavages since 1968 when it was established. He also stated that the club has assisted members to remain healthy by their continued involvement in the game, which demands that players walk over great distances when playing the game. Walking, Temowo explained, is globally regarded as a most important form of exercise.

The club, he added, began with 20 members and a 10-hole course, but now sits astride over 30 acres.
