The serene, but luxuriant Mic-Com Golf and Country Club, Ada, Osun State, is the p[lavce to ben this weekend. Reason: Some of the best players in the country have gathered at the club to test their skills in the 2015 BAP Real Estate Bi-ennial golf (PRO-AM) tournament, which is being organised and sponsored by Bode Adediji Partnership (BAP), a firm of estate surveyors, valuers and property consultants based in Lagos.
According to the tournament’s programme schedule, the professionals (PRO) were expected to strut their stuff at the course yesterday, while the amateur (AM) will take their turn today.
Speaking on the tournament, the sponsor, Bode Adediji, disclosed, “players and spectators will have the opportunity of witnessing one of the best golf tournaments in recent times”.
Adediji, who is a fellow and past president of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV), emphasised that the tournament would showcase the best golf players to the Nigerian public as well as demonstrating that “golf is real estate and real estate is golf.”
It could be recalled that Bode Adediji, then the honorary national Secretary of NIESV, facilitated and coordinated the first NIESV national real estate Golf tournament held at the instance of the national council during its 27th annual conference and general meeting, tagged “OLUOYE 97” at Ibadan, Oyo state. Since then, the tournament which attracted quite a large number of who-is-who in the nation’s real estate and the building construction industry, has today become an integral part of the yearly conference and annual general meetings of the nation’s estate surveyors and valuers.
