With over 200,000 golfers, golf is slowly becoming a sport, not only for the elite but also, interested persons who enjoy a sport that takes a whole lot of coordination, precision, and athletic ability.

For a stroke play format which is one of the most common form of golf played, the golfer with the best overall score, after 18 holes wins. In stroke play, each golfer goes up against the course and tries to out play fellow competitors. A combining power of strength and flexibility is required for this.

In recent times, Nigeria has made a name in the golf sport both locally and internationally through the performance of 16-year old Georgia Oboh who won the U.S. Kids Golf Teen World champion in 2015.
Leading pay television operator, MultiChoice Nigeria has consistently shown its support and commitment to the development of sports in Nigeria. Aside its wide coverage of local and international sports events that expose talents and sports administrators to global best practices, the company has also shown support for football, basketball and also, the immensely successful GOtv Boxing Night which is widely regarded as the biggest boxing show on the continent.
The boxing sport which was relegated to near irrelevance from its position as the country’s second favourite sport, reeling from decades of underfunding and poor organization was revived with the GOtv Boxing Night initiative which saw many talented boxers turning professional and pursuing their dreams of becoming world champions.
To further promote sports in Nigeria, DStv will be hosting the maiden DStv Premium Golf Day at the Ikeja Golf Club, Lagos on 14 November.
