From the Founder's Desk

We had a great response to our Founders Day celebrations last week, with many of our former students getting in touch. I had great fun looking back over old photos and records, and had a stark realisation that our initial students, who came to us just out of school, are now in their mid-thirties!

Here’s the earliest photo I could find from 2005, taken at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC. In the centre of the image you’ll see Sunshine Tour winner, Toto Thimba next to James Baker, who has had a fantastic career caddying on the European Tour for players, such as Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer and Jamie Donaldson.
