Lagos – Golf will feature in the forthcoming National Youth Games slated for August 2016 at the University of Ilorin in Kwara State.
The youth sports fiesta which would be organised by the National Youth and Sports, according to information, is principally for secondary schools as it is designed to hunt for talents in the various sports.
Kunle Dada, Vice President of Nigeria Golf Federation (NGF), said that the inclusion of golf in the Games was a good development as it was a developing sport in Nigeria.
“The inclusion of golf gives clear evidence that the game is beginning to gain recognition at the grassroots and it is a very good development,” Dada said.
He assured that the NGF would not relent in its youth development programme meant to groom the younger ones.
“NGF will continue to support efforts geared towards grassroots development, because there is the need for us to catch them young by taking the game to the public,” he said.
However, the organisers are said to be putting all necessary logistics in place ahead of the Games as further details would be made public in no distant time.
