After two weeks of intensive training, Saraya Yusuf has emerged the overall winner of the 2021 Children Golf Development Clinic which held at the IBB Club and Country Golf course in Abuja on Friday.
The event tagged “Future Champions of Golf” was put together by the club’s Ladies section for children between ages of 5 and 18.
“I’m glad to have emerged champion and I learnt so many things during this program which I know will be useful to me in life,” she said.
In her own submission, the Vice Lady captain and chairman of the clinic, Mrs Joy Ikwue was ecstatic at the huge turnout of the kids as well as the successes recorded.
“We are glad and happy that everything went well. We had over 120 children who participated in this clinic. Some of them who knew nothing about can show you how to swing and hit the ball,” she said.
She further said the kids were taught how to be organised and coordinated which golf as a game teaches.
“We have been saying that golf is life in the sense that you can never know what will happen tomorrow and you need to be coordinated and organised.
“Golf can make you organised and coordinated when you are on the course. Golf makes you calm as you play,” she noted.
