Ilara-Mokin, near Akure, Ondo State and The Smoking Hill Golf Country Club will play host to the first BAP real estate biennial golf (PRO-AM) tournament on April 11 and 12.
It is being organised and sponsored by Bode Adediji Partnership, a firm of estate surveyors, valuers and property consultants based in Lagos.
According to the tournament schedule, the professionals will play on April 11 while the amateurs will play both days.
Adediji, who is a great lover of golf said, “Players and spectators will have the opportunity of a facility tour of a most unique landmark in Africa, where a first-class university campus is sited next door to a first class golf course.”
Adediji, who is a fellow and past president of the Nigeria Institute of Estate Surveyors and Valuers, added that the tournament would showcase the best golf courses in Africa to the Nigerian public as well as demonstrating that, “Golf is real estate and real estate is golf.”
Adediji, who was a former honorary national secretary of NIESV, facilitated and coordinated the first NIESV national real estate golf tournament tagged Oluyole’97 which held in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Since then, the tournament which attracted a large number of people in the nation’s real estate and the building construction industry has become a part of the annual general meetings of the nation’s estate surveyors and valuers.
