Club Championship lights up Ikeja Golf Club

Ikeja Golf Club has been a beehive of activities since the annual Club Championship, one of the club’s most glamorous tournaments, teed off on Monday.

The weeklong championship, which started with the Caddies competition, also saw club-based professional golfers take their turn on the course on Tuesday.

It was the turn of Ladies on Wednesday, while a Special Kitty was held for yesterday. Today, guest players will have their day on course.

Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the tournament’s defending champion, Muyideen Olaitan, who lived up to expectations last year when he defeated a field of over 150-players to emerge winner of the 2016 edition.

It was the same story in 2015 when he toppled the then defending champion, Chris Obije to emerge winner.

Apart from Olaitan and Jimoh Ogunbdare, who are tournament favourites, there are other single handicap players like Obije, Bideni Ojo,
Yomi Egbe, Niyi Latinwo, Rasaq Murtala, Austin Ojomo, Austin Aigbotsua, Fred Apah, Kunle Oguleye and Gbenga Ayodele to watch out for in the competition.

Speaking on the event, the Club Captain Niyi Latinwo said apart from the favourites, every player has the opportunity to win the c
competition.

While wishing participants good luck, Latinwo urged them to continue to uphold the ethics for which the sport is known.

On his part, the Competition Secretary, Jolomi Ideh said Ikeja Golf Club Championship is an event everybody looks forward to.
