Herewith a few words from Nettie

I am proud to say that I am BACK! Working with this incredible company has taught me so much about myself and the travel industry.

With just a few years in this industry itself, my passion for the sport of Golf grows daily, even when I’m not playing….and my knowledge of traveling South Africa, especially the Garden Route, is my biggest motivator to prepare dream holidays for clients who end up becoming family. That is my goal!

I can’t wait to plan your next Golf trip 😊
