Lagos – The IBB International Golf and Country Club’s 2016 Children’s Summer Golf Development Clinic has commenced amid thrills and frills on Thursday in Abuja with kids from across the country.
The clinic, an initiative of the Ladies Section of the club is targeted at children from age 5-19, just as it is aimed at creating awareness among the children in the game and their future.
The clinic, which usually comes during school’s long vacation, according to the IBB Lady Captain, Lami Ahmed, is aimed at having a good number of children to participatew and benefit from it.
“This is the best period to have the children together in good number and it’s a clinic that is educative, They will learn a lot about golf and we want as many children that we can get to benefit from it.”
The registration for the clinic which will last till August 12 was put at N25,000 even as certificate of participation is expected to be given to the children at the end of the exercise.
The children no doubt would have swell-time, competing among themselves for honours as the daily events tee off at8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
The clinic, however, will precede the forthcoming Junior Open Championship also in Abuja where some of the children that may have imbibed good skills are expected to be in action.
