A delegation from the club which comprised members of the tournament planning committee was at the office of the Director-General, Chief Olusegun Runsewe OON in Abuja on a courtesy visit.

Ikoja revealed that the club is the most prestigious golf club in the country with a diverse membership of over 5000 drawn from government agencies, captains of industries, senior diplomats and high net worth individuals.
