Obijackson set to unveil world-class Golf Course in Ihiala


A new world-class golf facility, Acropolis Golf Course, is set to be launched in Ihiala, Anambra State in April.

Obioma Ogakwu, Facility Manager NestOil, who manages the project ,said the golf course would complement his company’s social investment in the South-East region of Nigeria, and help expand options for international tourists visiting Anambra.

“Golf is one sport that has been growing silently in the country, and this project hopes to accelerate it and help the state harness its potential for social and economic growth.”

Former Nigeria Numbers 1 professional golfer, Mike Ubi, who has been working with the facility owners to bring some of its characters to international specifications, said the course would change the dynamics for the game in the region.

“The standard that has been set with the Acropolis Golf Course tells of the passion of the owners, and their drive for excellence, which is needed to raise the demand for quality golf facilities in the country.”


The Acropolis Golf Club, is nestled in a residential estate, which offers tourists and visitors the ease of access, security, and complimentary hospitality value.

The golf course, will be opened to the public from Friday, April 5th, with activities lined up till Sunday April 7th, 2024.

“The South Eastern states of Nigeria have fewer golf facilities despite having immense golfing talents and contributed hugely to the local golf tourism. I believe Acropolis will do to Anambra what major golf courses have done to the tourism value of the Federal Capital, Abuja, Akwa Ibom, Rivers, and Lagos states,” he added.

The golf course is a standard nine-hole par 36 course with two par-3s and two par-5s.

Select top golfers across the country have been invited to be part of the opening ceremony of the golf course, while limited spots have been reserved for the public which, is confirmed through the course’s website.

In all, over 80 professional golfers and amateurs are expected to be part of the ceremony that will feature an 18-hole tournament and extensive tour of the facility.
