To ensure an adequate water supply and maintain the golf course in playing condition at all times, the golf section of the Ikoyi Club 1938 signed an agreement with Julius Berger for the complete irrigation of the course water.

The project, which will last ten weeks, was offered by the Ikoyi Golf Community Nigeria (IGCNA) association.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony on Tuesday, IGCNA President Wahab Aminu-Sarumi said that one of the main objectives of IGCNA is to support the development of the golf section’s infrastructure.

While congratulating Golf Captain Meckson Innocent Okoro and his committee for their progressive disposition, Aminu-Sarumi said the positive partnership between the section and IGCNA has helped envision such a great project.

While thanking the Section members for their support of IGCNA over the years, he said the healthy surpluses left by former captain Ted Iwere and Tony Onwu are much appreciated.

Club president Ademola Mumuney called the decision to hire a reputable company like Julius Berger to rework the club’s irrigation system, saying: “It will go a long way in keeping the course in good condition at all times. We all know how competent Julius Berger is and we believe they will do a good job.

Happy with this initiative, the captain of golf, Mr. I Okoro, thanked the IGCNA executive led by Aminu-Sarumi, saying that the section would always appreciate their contribution to the development of its facilities.
