Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Oyediran said the tourney is expected to begin with Caddies and staff kitty on Wednesday, before the arrival of guests on Friday for the cocktail party scheduled for the same day at 7:00pm.
According to Oyediran, logistics have been put in place to make the event a memorable one.
Oyediran said: “At least we would have close to 200 golfers across the country because golf is now gaining momentum due to media publicity and television rights that are associated with the game.
“Having served as IGC Captain, the experience is quite encouraging in the sense that it afforded me the opportunity to put the things I have learned over the time to use as a Captain of IGC, holding committee meetings, handling budget, annual general meeting, the experience is fantastic,” he said.
Present at the briefing were the chairman, Local Organising Committee, Col. Ade Sunmonu (retd); Secretary, LOC, Wale Olagoke; Prince Bamidele Abolarin, Mr Bunmi Oladimeji, Olawale Ojo (Awake) and Bernard Nduka.
