Established on 1938 after the merger of the European Club and Lagos Golf Club, Ikoyi Golf Club is one of the oldest sport clubs in Nigeria.
Long after the amalgamation of the European Club and the Lagos Golf Club, the Ikoyi Club 1938 remained essentially an “expatriates club” run by top European civil servants and members of the business communities.
The Ikoyi Club 1938 has metamorphosed from its European only membership into one of the best examples of multiracial clubs in the world with membership drawn worldwide.
Located in Ikoyi, the modern-day Ikoyi Club 1938 is a private member family club and it occupies an enviable area of approximately 456 acres of land and provides first class facilities for about 10, 000 members.
Ikoyi Golf Club Course
The Ikoyi Club Golf course is a par 71 course made up of 18 holes, totalling 5838 meters in length. Each hole is portrayed by unique features such as sand traps, fairway bunkers, water and huge trees. The course is located in the centre of a residential area and provides a perfect getaway from the everyday hustle and bustle of Lagos City life.
Golfers can benefit from the Driving range plus putting and chipping practice facilities. The club has several resident pros that are available to help the beginners or the more competent golfers. The Clubhouse is a buzz of activity throughout the week and is a great place for networking and meeting people.
