Handicap 14 amateur player, Clement Chinaka, has emerged the overall winner of the 2022 IBB International Golf and Country Club Captain’s Cup in Abuja.
He grossed 81 and netted 67 on countback in the event that marked the end of the tenure of Senator Emmanuel Anosike as the Captain of the Abuja based golf club.
However, in handicap 4, Mohammed Suleiman played 70 gross to win Men’s Best gross while policewoman Rachael Danjuma of handicap 8 won the Ladies Best Gross with 84.
Other awardees include J. Ahmed in the Veteran Men, J. Obinyan in the Super Veteran category, Amina Wilfred in the Handicap zero to 18 ladies, M. Nwoye in the Veteran Ladies, Banjo Obaleye in the Sponsor category, M. Agbo in the Guest Men and R.A. Nyam for Guest Ladies.
In his farewell speech, the outgoing Captain expressed delight that his tenure was ending on a positive note and thanked the members for their support during his one year in office.
“One thing that is major in everybody’s life, two things. Beginning and End. I believed I started very well and by the grace of God, I am ending very well. The major issue in any Golf Club is to have the last tournament, we called it ‘end of the term tournament’. IBB’s own Captain’s Cup.
“This particular outing is key because of people’s acceptance and satisfaction. I am excited that this is coming to an end and last week I played hole-in-one”, he said.
Chairman of the Planning Committee and former Minister of Justice, Bayo Ojo, SAN, said the event was successful because of the support of all the club members.
