The last rounds of the Nigeria Golf Federation (NGF) Zonal kiddies/youth clinic and championship for North Central and North West scheduled for the last week of July have been postponed to August 2015.

The Secretary General of the Federation, Taiwo Oriss, in an interview on Thursday said that the postponement was due to logistic reasons.

According to him, “There are lots of things that needs to be put in place for the participants to have a hitch free competition. But, from all indication not much has been done by the two remaining zones- North West and North Central.

“It is on this ground that the North West Zonal Representative, Hon. Jibril Nazisi pleaded for postponement to August.

“For the North Central, the Zonal Representative, Ishola Isaac, had accident recently and he is still recuperating. But, he has promised they would be ready by August.

However, the secretary said that no dates have been fixed.

The NGF Director of Youth Development, Emmy Ekong, had earlier told the press that the final of the zonal programme would come up in September, 2015 even as the venue was still to be mentioned.

The two days event usually features players in three categories from age 8-12, 13-15, and 16-19 playing different number of holes.
