The Duke of Edinburgh Cup is coming to Nigeria! It is an international charity golf event that raises awareness and financial support for the Duke of Edinburgh International Award.
The Duke of Edinburgh International Award is already in Nigeria under the operating name – The International Award for Young People.
The Duke of Edinburgh Cup is an annual worldwide series of golf tournaments run by International Golf for Youth (IGFY) culminating in a World Finals Event held each year in the United Kingdom.
The Tournament is used as vehicle to raise money for charities supporting children and young people in need or to assist in improving their lives. These charities are usually located in the country holding the event. It is also an excellent platform for sponsors to be able to advertise and gain exposure.
The winner and runner up of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Cup (Nigeria Qualifier) will embark on a one week all expense paid trip to the United Kingdom to compete against other finalists from other countries from around the world over a three-day competition. They will also attend a Royal Gala at Windsor Castle, where members of the British Royal Family will be present.
The inaugural event is being held at Ikoyi Club 1938 Golf Club on the 22nd – 23rd of March 2019. Subsequently, there will be additional regional events in Abuja and Port-Harcourt next year.
