Over 150 golfers would be battling for honours at the Ikeja Ladies Championship which started counting since October 25.

The championship which has its main event between October 29 and 30 however, commenced activities since Monday, October 25 with the Caddies, Club Professionals and Admin Staff event; October 26 and 27, had the men taking their turn as Thursday which made it a cocktail.

Busola Ladipo, the Lady Captain of the Club however, gave some perspective on the increase in the participation figure in an earlier interview where she said: “This year’s Ladies Club Championship has an impressive record figure in Ikeja Golf Club history.”

She revealed, “In the previous years, the figure of participating golfers usually stand at 60-70; but I’m proud to say under my tenure and for the first time, we are having over 80 golfers who have registered ahead of the Championship; but we are expecting over 150 to register before the tournament proper which was yesterday and today.”

This development the Lady Captain said was a confirmation of her efforts at turning around the Ladies Section of Ikeja Golf Club the which hitherto was beginning to lose the desired glamour associated with Ladies Section of clubs.

“Before now, lady members at the Ikeja Golf Club were becoming reluctant to play golf, but today as the Captain, I have been able to encourage them to improve in their game and the situation is now very impressive,” the Captain enthused.

The Captain added, “The men have been my biggest surprise in this Championship; they have been very supportive morally and financially – they have been by me to ensure the success of the event.”

Concluding, she said that participants would be given the best treatment while the Championship lasts as all logistics have been put in place to ensure a hitch-free event.
