He said the event which is expected to attract over 70 Captains of golf clubs across the country will be chaired by the Chairman of IBB Board of Trustees, Gen IBM Haruna (rtd), while the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, will be the special guest of honour.

Runsewe explained that the Summit will open a new network for golfers across the country particularly on the World Handicap System (WHS), which the NGF is working out to integrate the Nigerian golf community into the entire world.

“As the apex golf body in Nigeria, NGF is working out a plan that will open new opportunities for upcoming golfers.

“We are working on youth development programmes. The federation is excited about Iyeneobong Essien and wishes to congratulate the 16-year-old for her outstanding performance at the Champion of Champions World Golf Championship in Northern Ireland where she placed first runners up.

“She has made Nigeria proud and the golf federation will ensure it discovers more upcoming golfers from across the country,” the NGF president pledged.
