DStv Premium Golf Day: Promoting Development of Sport in Nigeria

Football may be the most popular sport in Nigeria but golf is a sport that is slowly creeping into the hearts and minds of Nigerians, especially the older generation. In recent times, Nigeria has made a name in the golf sport, both locally and internationally through the performance of 16-year-old Georgia Oboh who won the U.S. Kids Golf Teen World champion in 2015.

Recently, leading pay-television operator MultiChoice Nigeria hosted its maiden DStv Premium Golf Day at the Ikeja Golf Club in Lagos, to further promote sports in Nigeria. The tournament was well received by the golfing community in Nigeria and is considered a premier event amongst golfers. The event had golfers from Ikeja Golf Club, Ikoyi Club Golf Section, Ibadan Golf Club, Abeokuta Golf Club, Benin Club Golf Section and Ekiti Golf Club.
