Fore! Not your average Christmas Wish request, but an earnest one and the ultimate demonstration of the devotion of a golf widow.

 Lisa Dreyer wrote to us to tell us about her golf-obsessed husband, Etienne. Retrenched at the end of 2019, Etienne managed to find a job beginning of this year, as a consultant for 3 days a week. Unfortunately, the owner from Germany shut down the company leaving Etienne unemployed and under a fair amount of stress.

 Golf nut Etienne has been a Nedbank Marshall for 18 years and he was a captain. His photo album boasts the likes of Kojak star Telly Savalas, Gary Player and Ernie Els. He’s even played blackjack with Sergio Garcia.

 Lisa has just one simple Christmas Wish for her husband: to be blessed with a game of golf. Knowing his love of golf, how it helps him destress and that he plays off a 9 handicap, it was a no-brainer chat to our friends at the Dainfern Golf Estate. Director of Golf Timothy Steynberg and course pro Chris Davison will host Etienne and his mates for a day out, embracing the gentleman’s game.
