History of Nigeria

Nigeria is located in West Africa. It borders Niger in the north, Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east. Nigeria got its independence on October 1, 1960 from Britain. The estimated population of Nigeria is roughly 200 million, making it the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous in the worldafter China and india.More than 100 million of its population are under the age of 18. Due to corrupt leaders, inequality in wages and political instability, roughly 60 percent live in poverty. Nigeria has a very low “Human Development Index of 152nd in the world. The current minimum wage is #18,000. Which is currently equivalent to $50 a month.

Why a Public Driving Range in Nigeria?

Golf in Nigeria is only for the rich. Poor or middle class families have zero chance to learn the game because of high cost. Building a public driving range that will be affordable is necessary because the youth and kids of middle class or poor will now have chance to pick up the game of golf. The only country represented from the whole of Africa in professional golf is South Africa on both Lpga tour and Pga tour. Building a public driving range will at least give the youth and kids of Nigeria the chance to try golf. It gives them a chance to explore, learn and embrace golf. And maybe few can compete internationally as professionals on the tour later in future.
