4th DOAMF Championship tees-off March 8


The 4th edition of the DOAMF Charity Golf Championship is scheduled to tee-off at the Golf Course of Ikoyi Club 1938 on March 8, 2014, in Lagos.

 The event, a memorial, set up to honour the memory of late Master Daniel Ogechi Akujobi  who was killed in a road accident on his way back to school, has become one of the biggest charity golf events in the country.

Funds raised during previous tournaments were committed to a number of emergency intervention projects including building an emergency ward at the Enugu State University Teaching hospital, Enugu.

Coordinator of the Organising Committee, Pat Bassey, said that, due to the judicious use of funds raised, quality and transparent management of the event, the profile of the championship has been on the rise.

According to him; “A good number of corporate organisations that are seeking partnership opportunities to support charitable causes have found the DOAMF event a good platform.”

He added that;”This is definitely a bigger tournament in all ramifications and interest in sponsorship opportunities is very encouraging. With the feelers emerging, this year’s edition will be bigger and better”.

The Charity event is an 18-Hole round of golf on a very challenging and foremost golf course in Nigeria. It also, presents opportunities for participants to win laurels, whilst offering a platform to make charitable contributions towards positive intervention to meet critical and emergency needs of people in infrastructure-starved parts of the country.
