LAGOS – Dr. AU Katchy, the Captain of Enugu Golf Club, has said that Match Play is essential for the development and promotion of golf in Nigeria.
The Captain made the statement, while dwelling on the 2016 edition of the club’s match play against Air Assault Golf Club of Port Harcourt, which was rounded off on Sunday at the 1928 Enugu golf course.
Commenting on the significance of the event, he said, “Match Play enhances the development of golf in Nigeria; it also enhances inter-club relationship as well as helping to improve golfing in Nigeria.”
Meanwhile, the Enugu team blew up Air Assault team by 6-3 in the match play.
The Enugu team paraded players as ND Kalu, Ebuka Igboagu and Godsmark Isife, who ensured that the host won the match.
The game, which began on Friday with a cock tail part, had invited guests slugging it out in a kitty event on Saturday with Isife scoring 77 to beat Ofem Jackson on count-back.
On the performance of the teams the Captain concluded, “We saw keen contest, brilliant performance by the players and new friends were made, ideas shared, which is the hallmark of the sport.”
