Emeka Okatta, the President of African Golf Tour, on Thursday in Abuja said the Sagamu Cup would serve as a qualifier for a continental golf tournament scheduled to hold in Mauritius in October.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that the Sagamu Cup, one of the tournaments of the 2019 African Tour season, is expected to hold from July 31 to Aug 3.
Okatta told NAN that the tournament in Sagamu would serve as a qualifier for an all-expenses paid trip to a tournament in Mauritius in October.
He explained that the qualifying tournament to be played at the Sagamu Golf Club in Ogun would feature only Nigeria Golf Federation (NGF) players.
“The Sagamu Cup scheduled to hold at the Sagamu Golf Club will be used as a qualifying round for NGF players to represent Nigeria in Mauritius in October.
“The NGF Amateurs qualification is a four-round 72-par tournament.
“It has a prize purse of 25,000 dollars with the winner expected to pocket a whopping 4,000 dollars.
“The qualified players will represent Nigeria in an all-expenses paid trip to Mauritius in October,” Okatta said.
