Looking back...

EOGA has undergone significant changes in the past couple of months.

The EOGA team has changed, evolved and grown. We had to say goodbye to our dear Quintin van der Berg. Quintin has accepted a very exciting new venture in Vietnam and we wish him all the best in his overseas endeavors. But EOGA is thrilled to announce that not 1, not 2, but 3 new coaches have joined the team: Alec Ahrens, Murray Smit and John Thomson.

Read on to see all the new additions at EOGA Golf Academy.


EOGA Steenberg

As our full season starts, we are gearing towards a busy time of coaching, mentoring, encouraging and rejoicing in what we can do for your golfing needs.

Our 3 permanent coaches at Steenberg, Etienne Olivier (MD), David Gerhardi and Matt Durham, are working hard at keeping up with new technologies so that your golf game benefits from it

David and Matt have focused a lot of their time working with very young ones, to juniors, including students from our partner school Reddam House, Constantia.

Etienne dedicates a lot of his coaching time to train our elites, making use of the technology available today – always  combining discipline and enjoyment.

The annual Classic Week ended and what a beautiful event it was. EOGA set up a few stations for the golfers to come and practice their skills and see where they might need some help from our coaches. If that was you, don’t delay, book your lesson before the season gets mad!

EOGA Erinvale

Our Erinvale site welcomed two new coaches, Murray Smit and John Thomson.

Murray very much looks forward to providing a premium coaching experience for both visitors and guests of Erinvale and comes with a lot of experience.

John will focus on developing our Junior golf at Erinvale site but also at Reddam House Somerset West and Newberry House, our 2 partner schools.

John Thomson and Murray Smit

We had a launch party at Reddam House Somerset West to celebrate the introduction of our Short Golf course. Parents and kids alike had great fun!

EOGA Erinvale offers the Short Golf programme both at Reddam House and Newberry House (both in Somerset West) on their respective premises. Classes will also be available for anyone in the Somerset West area at the Erinvale Gold Estate - kids, junior and adults.

Please contact us if you’re interested in starting your golfing journey with us - for any age, at any level - at


EOGA Westlake

Alec Ahrens is taking charge of all your coaching needs at EOGA Westlake Golf Club. Alec is young, full of experience, full of enthusiasm and a warm personality that will motivate you to grow your game under his guidance. Alec has already started with coaching the youth from the American International School in Constantia. The Short Golf programme is also offered from the age of 4 at the school itself, while the teens will be coached on the Westlake premises in Lakeside.
Alec also offers Junior Academy coaching every Thursday 16:30 - 17:30. All juniors 7 and up are welcome.

The ladies of Westlake have also already benefited from Alec’s coaching and are enjoying their weekly clinic and competitions. Make the most of it until 21 December!


EOGA Milnerton

Alec Ahrens will be available for coaching at our Milnerton site on Thursdays only. If Milnerton Golf Club is your club, contact us to arrange a lesson with Alec.


Looking ahead...
