The organizing committee of the annual Leopard Ladies golf tournament and beauty pageant has concluded its intention to hold the fourth edition of the event from January 28 to 30, 2022 at the Arsenal Golf and Country Club, located in the barracks soldier of the 32nd Artillery Brigade, Obinze, Owerri.
Members of the organizing committee include Ms. Ongodi Nkwoji, team leader; Maureen Reece, former Lady Captain of Ibadan Golf Club and Tiger Golf Club, Sumbo Oshile, the coordinator, Remi Johnson and Mary Gabriel.
The committee revealed that every participant in the golf and beauty salon should be dressed in a leopard print outfit in accordance with the tradition and concept of the tournament which focuses on empowering women with a particular interest in women in Golf.
“The idea is to show the desire to connect with nature, to interact and to enjoy the guaranteed serenity of the green Arsenal golf course,” said the team manager, who is popularly known as Ms. Mike’s name because she was the wife of a deceased golf enthusiast, Okpata Mike Nkwoji.
“The Leopard Golf and Beauty Pageant is not just one golf tournament, as we are used to. It is a unique piece that has been conceptualized to showcase our tradition and wearing a leopard print is a way of saying “I am a woman, who is not afraid to be identified with the African chutzpah.”
While reassuring golfers of their safety, Nkwoji explained that Arsenal Golf and Country Club was founded in 2003 and to date it has never had a safety issue.
She revealed that the club has a standard golf course located in the military barracks of the 32nd Artillery Brigade, Obinze Owerri.
