Juliet Monye-Inyeri, Lady Captain of Ibori Golf and Country Club (IGCC), has applauded the return of some women in the club after some period of unceremonious break.
The Captain told Independent on Wednesday that the development was part of the efforts in her second tenure to properly re-integrate women into the game at IGCC.
“When I came in l discovered the Ladies Section of the club was not what it should be; many lady-members were no more playing,” she said.
In this regard she said, “As Captain, I have to ensure they return and enjoy the benefits of playing golf. I believed that no matter what the problem maybe, it can be surmounted.”
Against this backdrop the captain said, “As I speak four women have been given handicap.”
On why some of the women stopped playing she said, “They have their personal reasons, which may not be for the press, but what is important is that they have summoned the courage to return and the Ladies Section is now bubbling again.”
