Acropolis Golf Course Opens in Okija, Anambra, Boosting Tourism and Golf Adoption

A new golf facility, Acropolis Golf Course, is set to open in Okija, Anambra state, on Saturday, April 6, 2024.

The launch event will feature a golf tournament that will attract some of the best professional and amateur players from Nigeria and other West African countries.

The golf course, built inside a resort, is one of the few in Nigeria and the only one in the South East. It is expected to boost tourism and golf adoption in the state.

According to the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), Nigeria is one of the top golf destinations on the continent, and the internal tourism that golf has promoted is well documented.

The Acropolis Golf Course will not only raise the tourism potential of the host state but also create jobs for locals who will provide support services.

The 42-hectare course is equipped with modern facilities and a 165-room apartment complex, offering a luxurious complement to the beautiful layout of the course.

Obioma Ogakwu, Acting Manager of Acropolis Resort, expressed his excitement about the new facility, stating that it will help promote tourism and golf adoption in the state.

Pamela Osanakpo, the communications manager of Acropolis Golf and Resort, added that the inaugural event will attract top professional players from Nigeria and other West African countries, including current Nigerian number one ranked player Francis Epe, Mike Ubi, Oche Odoh, Gift Willy, and Olapade Sunday, among others.

To ensure a smooth arrival for golfers attending the event, airport shuttles have been provided for those traveling from the nearest airports, namely the Anambra and Asaba Airports, to the Acropolis.

The Acropolis Golf Course is set to become a significant attraction in Okija, boosting the local economy and further promoting the game of golf in Nigeria.
