The prize, named the Adewunmi Ogunsanya Hole-in-One Prize, is one of the big draws at the event, which holds today at the Ikeja Golf Club in Lagos.

This was announced in Lagos yesterday by the organisers, Flykite Productions, who had previously announced five performance-related prizes, including for the longest drive and nearest to the pin.

The first prize is a business class ticket to Dubai for a weekend stay at a five-star hotel, while the second is a business class ticket to Rwanda for a weekend stay at five-star hotel. The third prize is a weekend stay at a five-star hotel in Lagos, with the prize for the longest drive being a 55-inch television set.

About a hundred golfers are expected to be in action at the event, which is in stroke play format.

According to the organisers, a total of 500 entries were received, with the number having to be trimmed in line with the requirements of COVID-19 safety protocols.

Golfers drawn in the top 50 will also be hosted to a cocktail at the end of the event.
