Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and while that is important for obvious reasons, 103 years ago on this day one of the great trailblazers of Australian Golf was born.

Several years ago, before he had left this world, I had the opportunity to produce, script and narrate an audio tribute to Norman Von Nida and involved many of those he had helped along the way including one or two from outside the game.

I hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane with one of Australian golf’s most colourful characters.
