Coscharis Motors Limited has successfully completed this Year’s BMW Golf National championship, hosted at the Lakowe Lake Golf Club in Lagos, recently.
The championship was designed to reward the company’s golf playing customers and select the gross winner to represent BMW Nigeria at the BMW World Golf International in Dubai next year.
The overall gross winner and national representative, Tunji Adebayo actually finished 3rd place in the men’s category 1 but achieved gross 79 to emerge the overall winner. He will be representing BMW Nigeria next year in Dubai at the Emirate Golf club from March 5 – 10, 2017.

Winners in the women’s category are first place – Hon. Rev. Mrs Tshola Williams (Nett 79) while Toyin Martins was second (Nett 82) and Chinyelu Onochie came third with Nett 87.
According to the overall gross winner, Tunji Adebayo, he is thrilled to have achieved the status of the national representative and looks forward to ably representing the proudly Nigerian brand in Dubai next year. “It is a magic feeling, and I will not forget this winning for a long time”.
For the golfers, it is a dual fun to be rewarded for doing what they enjoy and that’s the beauty in any game. They complimented the BMW representative – Coscharis Motors, “for holding such a fantastic tournament and we are already looking forward to next year’s competition”.
He said, “For Coscharis, as the exclusive representative of the globally respected iconic auto brand of BMW, it’s always a privileged opportunity to host our ever loyal BMW customers and hot prospects alike in a relax environment enjoying the beautiful sport of Golf.
You will all agree with me that this period of the year is just perfect to say thank you for your patronage through the year despite all odds, says Dr Cosmas Maduka, President/CEO of Coscharis Motors, who was represented by Mr Fred Amobi, the Group Executive Director, Operations.
“Our expectation is that our top winner from this national qualifier will not only represent us at the BMW World Golf but will return as the first ever winner of the “Major” from Sub Sahara Africa. But all the same, we congratulate all our winners and players who have showed the sporting spirit which is so much part of the game of golf.”
Each year BMW presents the opportunity for club golfers from around the world – a chance to participate in amateur golf’s only “Major.” It’s called the BMW Golf Cup International and it’s entered by over 1000 golfers from 50 countries, culminating in a 54 hole competition on one of the most beautiful golf resorts on the planet. This year’s event culminates in Dubai at the Emirate Golf club from March 5 – 10, 2017.
He said, “From a customer-centric perspective, we have always moved courses each year we have hosted this event. As a matter of fact, this event is organised in order to ensure that all our customers and prospects get equal chance to participate and enjoy the amazing feel and experience of the BMW Golf World Final.
“In the past, we have hosted the BMW Golf national qualifiers at the Le Meridian Golf Club in Uyo, IBB Golf Club, Abuja, Ikoyi Club, Ikoyi but this is our first with Lakowe, which currently ranks among the biggest courses in West Africa.
“Our plan is to, at least, sponsor the overall top player to an all expense paid trip towards representing our local market at the BMW world championship. And this is why we have insisted that the BMW National Final is an official golf tournament and must be played according to the official rules.
“Playing in the BMW Golf Cup World Final is once in a lifetime experience as every participant can only qualify for the World Final once in their lifetime. As a standard rule players are expected to either be first time participants or mustn’t have participated in the last 5 events (World Final 2011-2015).
“We are offering a 2 year complementary service and free insurance for any purchase or commitment within this yuletide period.”
