Imo State government has reiterated its resolve to promote golf as a sporting event for youths in the state. Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, stated this while fielding questions from the newsmen shortly after performing the tee-off of first ever Four Clubs Caddies between the age of 12 and 25 organised by West African Golf Tour Academy at Arsenal Golf Course, Obinze Owerri West.
Prince Madumere described golf as one of the sporting activities that has not been given the needed promotion in the state, promising on behalf of the governor Rochas Okorocha to bring back the past glory of the game. “Golf is one of the sports that have not really been promoted.
It needs to be showcased more in Imo State and Nigeria at large. Although we have Oguta golf course, Arsenal golf course and other wonderful places one can easily come down and play,” he said.
The Deputy Governor after tee-off was conducted round the Golf course by the captain Arsenal Country Golf Course Club, Mr. Emeka Ohaegbu who thanked Governor Okorocha for giving hope to the young golf players.
