More than 120 players have booked a place in the final round of the 7th edition of the Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial (DOAM) Foundation following the Qualifiers that took place last Saturday at the Golf Section of Ikoyi Club 1938 in Lagos.

The players will now be joined by guest players to make the full field when the finals tees-off on Saturday February 4th, 2017, at the same venue.

Coordinator of the event, Pat Bassey, said the keen interest shown in the Qualifiers has been overwhelming and illustrates the increasing popularity of the tournament and trust in what it represents – changing lives through golf.

“We are pleased with the caliber of golfers and individuals that have shown interest in reaching the under-privileged through DOAM Foundation. Despite not being able to accommodate all the golfers who desire to enjoy the tournament’s unique experience, we do appreciate. the strong interest by an overwhelming number of golfers, which is clearly a reflection of their confidence in the accountability and integrity of this project.” He said.

More than 66,000 lives have been impacted from donations received through the Foundation. The DOAMF Charity Golf funds have been channeled to support social causes in the specific areas of education, health and medical intervention within needy families and communities.

“In the last six years, projects supported include Scholarship Awards, Renovation/Rehabilitation of health centres in rural communities (Mowe in Ogun State and Amaimo in Imo State), building and equipping an Accident and Trauma centre at Mowe in Obafemi Owode LGA, Ogun State, Sickbay, Lavatory and library projects (in various schools across the country), skills acquisition for mothers of Orphans and Vulnerable Children ( OVC) students, scholarship awards to deserving students, and free medical screening and treatment to the less privileged in rural communities, amongst others,” Mr. Bassey added.

The DOAM Charity Golf Tournament is an annual one- day fund raising event that has been staged since 2011 at the Golf Section of Ikoyi Club 1938.

This year’s final will be concluded with a Prize giving/award cocktail party later in the evening of the same day.
