How it all started...
In the early 2000s, a few Nigerian friends who had been enjoying playing the game of golf together for some time realised the annual growth of the group and finally in 2004, decided to form an association who played monthly events of golf. The group was called the “Nigerian UK Golfing Association” (NUGA) and held its maiden event at Chelsfield Lakes Golf Club (Orpington) in April 2004.
The Nigeria-UK Golfing Association (NUGA) is an organisation of UK resident Nigerians (including non-Nigerian friends, associates and affiliates) who play golf, support charity and develop friendship.
Members have a deep passion for the game of golf as they do for supporting charity, good causes and strong family values. Non-golfers who believe in NUGA’s motto of “Friendship, Integrity and Charity” are also members of the association.
With members spanning the length and breadth of the UK and in Nigeria, NUGA has grown to become a purposeful and impactful society with many accomplishments in our short history.
The association owes a big part of its success to steady growth and good partnerships/sponsorships. NUGA always welcomes New Members and Sponsors.
