Lakowe Lakes Golf resort, a beautiful, luxury community nestled in a peaceful neighbourhood about 35km from the hustle and bustle of Lagos, will be hosting the Southern Sun Ikoyi Hotel’s 7th edition of its annual Golf Tournament today.
The resort , often described as ‘West Africa’s best kept secret, has played host to the tournament that has become an avenue for the hotel to foster tourism through sports within its business community.
Speaking at a media briefing ahead of the tourney, Mark Loxley, General Manager, Southern Sun Ikoyi, used the opportunity to appreciate traditional sponsors for their support while recognizing new partners.
He said all preparations have been concluded to ensure that partners and stakeholders of the Southern Sun Ikoyi brand have a truly memorable and fun day at this year’s tournament.
Loxley further added that in addition to the fantastic networking opportunities on offer to its sponsors and guests, “the 2018 Southern Sun Ikoyi Golf Tournament day, is one of the best ways that we can have our esteemed customers escape the daily chores of a hectic schedule and instead, do something healthy and socially worthy to strengthen the ties of our business community through sports and leisure”
“We invite our guests to the natural beauty and serenity of Lakowe Lakes Golf & Country Estate, with 308-hectare community of beautiful lakes, lush palm groves, spa and hospitality resort, sports facilities, and an 18-hole championship golf course.
Reiterating the tournament’s objective, Ubong Nseobot, Sales and Marketing Manager, Southern Sun Ikoyi, stated that “the golf tournament is a significant event within the hotel’s calendar as it is not a commercial event, but a CSR activity in giving back to the community within which it operates. Proceeds from the tournament will be given to the Arrows of God Orphanage which has been the hotel’s adopted charity organization for the past nine years”
Participants at this year’s Southern Sun Ikoyi Golf tournament also stand a chance of winning exciting and mouthwatering prizes ranging from cash prizes, business and economy class tickets to various international travel destinations and other prizes courtesy of the tournament’s corporate sponsors.
The Southern Sun Ikoyi Golf has grown bigger in scope as well as preparation and in turn has attracted both traditional and new sponsors who are keen on partnering with the hotel to ensure a world class golfing experience.
