The Port Harcourt 1928 Golf Section will come to life when it plays host to the Rivers @ 50 Golf Tournament today, Sunday June 4, 2017.
The tournament is powered by the Rivers State Golden Jubilee Committee and will feature a shot gun format as golfers are expected to arrive at 12noon to tee off at 12:30pm.
The club Captain, Emmanuel Okene, announced last night that the tournament is organized to celebrate the journey and accomplishments of the state created in 1967.
The participants will include the Rivers State government, captains of industries and other well meaning citizens of the state, including the stateâ€™s first governor and now the traditional ruler of Twon-Brass, King Alfred Diete- Spiff.
Awards will be presented to notable citizens of the state who are golfers in their own right. The event will crown the golden jubilee celebration of the state.
An array of prizes in different categories; men nett and gross, veteran, guests and ladies will be won.
â€œThe golden anniversary is a special and proud moment for all us in Rivers State. I want to also use this platform to acknowledge the immense support of Governor Nyesom Wike to the club in the past two years,â€ Okene said.
