OUR MISSION

Public Golf Range

Kids outside South Africa never had a chance or the resources to pick up the game. It's only played by the rich. BeBe Golf wants to change that by building the first public golf driving range in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria.

Academic Focus

Kids and young adults can play for free or at a maximum cost of $2 a bucket everyday with proof of excellent academic performance at school.

Core Values

Core values such as integrity, honesty, courtesy, respect and good sportsmanship will be taught in classrooms.

The mission statement for BeBe Golf is to be dedicated to the growth and development of kids and young adults by providing educational programs that introduces them to golf in Nigeria. The driving force behind Bebe Golf is to provide an affordable avenue to help introduce kids and young adults to golf at little or no cost. Bebe Golf wants to give kids from ages 5 to 18 a chance to pick up the game of golf while laying emphasis on life-enhancing values, proper morals and helping them grow to a better members of their family, community, state and Country.

The reason behind the idea is that kids in Africa except from South African never had a chance or the resources to pick up the game. Bebe Golf wants to change that by building the first public golf driving range on a 5 acres of land in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria. Kids and young adults can play for free or at a maximum cost of $2 a bucket everyday with proof of excellent academic performance at school.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

How are we going to provide educational programs that introduce them to golf in school?

GOLF Teaching PROFESSIONALS

Qualified teaching professionals will go to each school twice a week. The first time they visit, they will cover the history of golf, demonstrate in class the basic fundamentals of the game (grip, posture, stance and alignment). The second visit is a hands on lesson given to the kids to ensure they are learning the proper techniques and approach to the game.

ACADEMICS & CORE VALUES

Core values such as Integrity, honesty, courtesy, respect and sportsmanship will be taught in class rooms. Short educational videos will be played to demonstrate.

IN SCHOOL AND OUT OF SCHOOL GOLF

The kids and young adults will start off by hitting plastic balls in their school during their physical education time or school breaks into a net. They will then be allowed to visit the facility up to twice each week to hit actual golf balls after they understand the basic fundermental and golf mechanics. They will not be limited to how many times they can visit the facility, provided they are accompanied by their parents and provide good academic school standing.
