De Villiers Graaff Golf Academy.

The Golf Academy was started in 2014 by Boland Golf Union who identified De Villiers Graaff High School as the perfect venue for the Academy due to its excellent academic record, its spacious boarding facilities and its close proximity to Theewaterskloof Golf Course.

Our golfing achievements speak for themselves and count towards our ultimate aim of developing our students into well-rounded, well-educated South Africans. Our zeal, passion and vision will ensure the sustainability of the Academy. We are providing a base for a bigger and better database for junior golf in our country.

The Academy package is unique, proving to be highly successful and appears to be the ultimate solution for Junior Golf development and setup for keen golfers to follow their dreams. You can become a part of our golfing family for less than R70 000 per annum.

Some of our achievements since the launch are:

SA High School Champions 2016 and 2019.

Boland High School Champions 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019.

16 Players representing Boland.

10 Boland Junior titles for 2019.

 

After winning the Boland High School Championship our young side advanced to the SA High School Championship which was held at Koro Creek GC in Limpopo Province. We used our practise round to construct a solid game plan on how to play this course. The boys stuck to our plan and I was impressed by how they played for each other as a team. We edged out Curro Aurora on the last day to secure the  SA High School Champion’s Trophy for the second time. Jurian Mostert took 2nd place in the individual competition.

Our Academy represented our home club, Theewaterskloof, in the Boland Kruger League (Scratch League). We defeated Worcester GC in the semi-final played at Paarl GC. The final was played at De Zalze GC against a strong Paarl GC team. After regulation play the teams halved the match 3 all. Paarl won the 2nd hole of sudden death play-off to take the trophy.

In December 2018, six of our Golf Academy students represented Boland in the U/19 Inter Provincial and they won the B-Section.
