About


BRIEF HISTORY

K aduna Golf Club has its origin as the Golf Section of Kaduna Club. The Section was established in 1921 by the colonial administrators to cater exclusively for the recreation of the colonial officers. As the membership of the Section grew and due to the peculiarity of the game the Section was allowed to evolve into a separate entity now known as Kaduna Golf Club. The new Club established its course and club house in the very heart of the bustling city of Kaduna, which was then the capital of the Northern Region. The Club has a standard straight 18 holes course with the putting surface recently converted from browns to greens. The course is built in a green belt bounded on the south by the Kaduna State University; on the west by the Kaduna Polytechnic School of Business Studies and the Kaduna State Secretariat, on the north by Barau Dikko Specialist Hospital and Hamdala Hotel; on the east by residential houses in Ungwan Rimi GRA. The course covers an area of about 43 hectares. With the help of industries in Kaduna and the military the Club was able to quickly increase its membership which now includes a lot of Nigerians and other Africans. The textile and steel industries were pioneers in the sponsorship of golf tournaments while companies like Peugeot Automobile Nigeria, Dornier, Shell etc followed later. By 4970 the Club had its first African Captain in the person of Dr Eli B. Mama. The first Resident Professional was Sir Lucky Omoluwa. Early African members of the Club include Alhaji Altine, Dr. Eli Mama, Alhaji Ahmed Talib Alhaji
