In 2009, Louis Oosthuizen founded his Junior Golf Academy (Academy57) in Mossel Bay, born out of his passion for junior golf development.
Academy57 is looking after young golfers living in the Southern Cape, based at Pinnacle Point. The Academy has a four-tier coaching structure, headed by a PGA Professional coach. The golf programme not only focuses on the performance of already talented golfers, but also on the development of Juniors’ golf potential and life skills.
Academy57 (Peak Tier) annually host the top 10 Juniors in the Southern Cape that has successfully applied for membership. Currently we have some of the top Juniors in SA, performing on national as well as international level. The Second Tier (Performance Tier), Third Tier (Enterprise Development Tier) and Fourth Tier (Louis57 Kids) focus on the identification and development of Juniors with golf potential on grassroots level, as well as on the coaching and mentorship of a Development Coach.
