Organised by the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce, the 2023 edition of the Nigerian-British Golf Tournament ended on a high note as ADL Solutions upset last year’s winner of the competition, Yoke Solutions after a thrilling and exciting 18-hole competition at Ikeja Golf Club, Lagos.
Speaking at the lavish dinner party organised for the golfers and sponsors at the conclusion of the competition, the Special Guest of Honor of the event, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, expressed delight at the championship’s core through his representative, Mrs Cecilia Babajide Dada, Commissioner for Women Affairs.
The Governor’s special prize recipient, Mrs Dada, clarified how the competition aligned with Mr Sanwo-Olu’s goal, particularly in the domains of mental health campaigns and entertainment development.
The Governor’s delegate also commended the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), the organising body of the golf competition, for offering a platform that encourages unwinding, mingling, and networking.
Like in previous editions, the golfers sweated it out to outperform each other in a competitive manner. There was no nice mood on the course under the scorching sun either. Nonetheless, there was smooth flow of the ball among competitors.
The twenty-one four-player teams allowed for increased tactical engagement and teamwork.
After all was said and done, ADL had won the ninth amateur tournament with 141 Stable Ford points; Yoke had come in second with 140 points, and Consolidated Hallmark had finished third with 138 points.
ADL player Abubakar Ayuba stated that their ability to concentrate was crucial to their success. More so, you’ll need to decide what you want to accomplish.
Some of the golfers found it difficult to focus because they were accustomed to the 18-hole Ikoyi golf course, which was previously used by tournament organizers, as opposed to the Ikeja Club, which has 9 holes.
Speaking on how the event went, Mr Omotayo Babalakin, vice president of the championship organising committee, stated:
“It’s gone really well, and it’s been amazing; our sponsors were excellent.”
Furthermore, it’s a team competition that follows the Stable Ford format in golf.
“Many people came, and by God’s grace, we had amazing weather, which contributed to the competition’s great success.”
Babalakin said, “The prize presentation to players and sponsors also went well.”
The ceremonies honouring the winning groups and individuals were spectacular.
With 36 Stable Ford points, Linda Obieze was victorious in the women’s division, while Edelu Efekoha won the men’s division.Follow us on social media
