Golfers representing Yoke Solutions successfully defended their title at the 2024 Corporate Challenge Cup hosted by the Ikeja Golf Club on January 26 and 27.
The golfers, Gbenga Ayodele, Arun Sharma, Babatunde Ojo and Fawze Talal, earned an aggregate of 241 scores over two days to emerge consecutive champions ahead of 25 challengers.
In second place are Metro Apartments, who earned an aggregate of 236 scores over two days, while Krvk Agro emerged third with 227 scores over two days.
Speaking at the prize presentation ceremony on Saturday, the Ikeja Golf Club Captain, Sina Akinyemi, congratulated the participants and the organising committee headed by the Competition Secretary, Jenkins Alumona, for the successful tournament
“I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to each team for their unwavering commitment, dedication and sportsmanship throughout the tournament. Your resilience and passion have made the event a remarkable success,” Akinyemi said.
Chairman of Yoke Solutions, Zed Jituboh, said, “I feel great that we were able to defend our trophy, but I also feel worried that the field is getting wider and the challenge is getting tougher. We will have to go back to the drawing board to ensure we protect our reign.”
Gbenga Ayodele, one of the winning golfers, disclosed Yoke Solutions’ desire to make it three consecutive victories.
“I am so excited that we were able to defend the trophy, but it came as no surprise for me because, in the last five years, we have either been the winners or one of the runners-up. I want to commend the organisers for a good tournament and we will be back next year to defend our trophy.”
