Nigeria: Mark Leads Top Golfers to Otukpo Glo Golf Tour

The Senate President, distinguished Senator David Mark, is set to lead top West African golfers to the grand finale of the Glo Golf Tour, West Africa, 2012 holding from Thursday December 6, to Sunday December 9, 2012 at the Otukpo Golf and Country Club, Benue State.

The Senate President, who is a keen golfer, is billed to wear several caps at the grand finale. After teeing off the event, he will join high profile players in the invitational amateur game on Saturday, while at the same time serve as the chief host to all.

Ahead of the Otukpo event, the Senate President has challenged both pros and amateurs to strive to improve their scores, hoping that this tournament will improve the ranking of West Africa's golfers on the international circuit.

The event will end on Sunday, December 9, with a grand prize-giving gala night which will feature leading entertainers like Lagbaja, Basketmouth and Akpororo.

Sole sponsors of the tour, Globacom has set a new standard for the game in West Africa, having raised the prize bar for pros and creating multiple opportunities for category one amateurs and other amateurs.

Apart from the N62.5 Pro-Am purse, the highest in Africa, Globacom also offered a Toyota Corolla prize for anyone who played a-hole-in-one in the Tour and another N1m gift for a lucky veteran through a raffle draw.

The Otukpo grand finale is the climax of four weeks of keen competition among West Africa's best pro golfers including Ghana's Number one, Emos Korblah , Cameroun's number one Ebela Desire and great Nigerian players like Andrew Oche Odoh, Martin Odoh, Edet Umoh, Gbenga Oyebanji, Gift Willie, Ayuba Musa and others.
