Mr. Lamar Joe-Kyari Gadzama, an amateur golfer, has emerged as the 2023 champion of the IBB Golf Club, defeating Mr. Isaiah Okonofua on hole 17 in a tough match-play final.

The younger Gadzama, who plays off handicap 13.3, won all seven of his matches in the knockout-style competition and will now hold the title of Club Champion for one year.

In recognition of his achievement, Gadzama was awarded a trophy at the Captains Cup Dinner Reception held on Saturday, April 22, 2023. Gadzama has also been allotted a parking space and his name will be written on the board at the club.

The IBB Golf Club Singles Matchplay event is known for being a challenging and exciting competition, pitting golfers against each other in a knockout-style format. Gadzama’s impressive performance throughout the tournament and his hard-fought victory in the final have earned him the respect and admiration of his fellow golfers.
