Just a few days over eleven years ago Norman Von Nida passed away peacefully at his aged care home on the Gold Coast, his life celebrated soon after in Brisbane by what was a massive gathering of family, friends and industry folk.

Over the last seven or so years of Norman’s life I became close to him and four years prior to his passing put together an audio tribute to him which included his thoughts and many other key figures in his golfing life having their say on the contribution he made to their lives.

It is a piece that is timeless and hopefully highlights to those who weren’t already aware just what an impact he had on the game in Australia and on the lives of many people including my own.
