THE LOUIS57 JUNIOR GOLF ACADEMY
- Saturday 16 December - Pinnacle Point
The world knows LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN as a golfer. One of the best, he has proven his mettle over and over again, with sometimes unbelievable results.
Take for instance his Double Eagle on the second hole at Augusta – the first in the history of The Masters on that hole and the first Double Eagle at Augusta to be televised. Or his numerous wins on various professional golf tours around the world, including his first major win of them 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews. And then of course there was the small matter of him playing a round of 57 gross (15 under par) at Mossel Bay Golf Club – a round of golf so astonishing that it kick-started a whole new career for Louis – one that would benefit not only his entrepreneurial spirit, but people in need all over the world.
Because of the 57, Louis founded the LOUIS57 JUNIOR GOLF ACADEMY, ROUTE57 RESTAURANT, LOUIS57 WINES, LOUIS57 MERCHANDISE, LOUIS57 TRAVEL, LOUIS57 COFFEE, MAJOR GOLF SHOPS and the LOUIS57 FOUNDATION.
The LOUIS57 FOUNDATION is Louis and his wife Nel-Mare’s way of giving back to international and national charities, as well as to the broader Mossel Bay community which includes their work with the LEOLAN ACADEMY. The LEOLAN ACADEMY works with children with special needs, including those with autism and down syndrome.
