Golf has been my passion and my business for 25 years. The University majors I studied (teaching and Psychology) support areas of my career and I am an enthusiastic golf student and teacher.
I support the growth of Women’s Professional golf in South Africa, and have served many years on the WPGA Board.
My other business interest is with Emthunzini hats, a range of imported Sunhats specifically designed for UV protection. This popular brand has spilt over into most Pro Shops which I visit and supply.
I also run a Self Catering House in Gowrie Village , close to Gowrie Golf Course in Nottingham Rd in the Natal Midlands.
