Golf: Winners emerge at WCGC tourney


The 2023 national final of the World Corporate Golf Championship was won by Vitus Ezenwa and Peter Eben-Spiff, both representing Grand Cereal-1, last weekend at the Lakowe Lakes Golf Estate in Lagos.

The CEO, Falcon Golf Nigeria, Remi Olukoya, whose company runs the global franchise in Nigeria, said a lot of players attended this year’s event with their loved ones.

“The unique thing about this year’s event is the number of players who came to Lakowe with their families for the event. I think it adds to the fun of the event,” he said.

The national finals of the World Corporate Golf Championship is a yearly 36-hole team event among players who contest in pairs under a brand’s name.

The winner of the event will fly Nigera’s flag at a global event in Tenerife, Spain later in the year.

The Golf Manager at Lakowe Lakes, Femi Olagbenro, said Lakowe Lakes confirmed that 30 different corporate firms jostled for the one ticket that was eventually won by the Grand Cereal-1 team.

The national finals of the WCGC was decided over two days with a Stableford between April 15 and 16.

Some of the teams which featured this year include Meristem Securities, Banwo&Ighodalo, NCDMB and QSHOP.
