The allure of Runsewe’s Golf Garden
The magnificent Golf Garden Water Front [GGWF], a lush golf pad Otunba Olusegun Runsewe is just presenting to this country, will in weeks to come be considered by many to be the ultimate golf experience in Nigeria. Thanks to its eight excellent indoor courses and the various practice facilities on offer.
The estate in Wuse, Abuja, where this dream course is situated is a constant hive of activity, especially at the porter’s desk, where guests are taken through to the various activities on offer. However, despite all of the movement, the atmosphere remains relaxed, and such is the quality of service here particularly noticeable in the upgraded club lounge.
But while life is idyllic and serene inside the borders of this little world of its own, the rolling huge apartments and several lounges on the adjacent crescent will give you whatever calm atmosphere you will crave for anywhere in the world.
In keeping up with the trend of outdoor golfing, GGWF offers so much. There is a huge Range you will see anywhere around those postcard courses in America. The course itself has this undulating landscape that could task your short game to no end. The Greens are lush and well-manicured. There is particular hole that has a Green built with same grass as you will see at Augusta, Georgia, the home of world Masters of the game. And you can play all night here because the course is well lit with flood lights. “What we have done is to put on ground world class golf facility you can find anywhere in the world” founder of the club, Otunba Runsewe stated. This is to the glory of Nigeria, I must add. We put everything in place. We have the largest Pro Shop in West Africa and a solid Golf Academy that can compare with anyone in the world. We have exclusive areas Ambassadors and great people who need privacy can relax and play golf. This is why this Club won’t be for everyone. It is not about money from those who want to join. But we want to create an exclusive area for exclusive people. It is all about golf at the end of the day”.
