The story of Imraan Christian and his friends using golf as a connector, a channel of expressing and ultimately redefining the sport as they go, has got us all excited.
‘“We are a family,” explains artist, photographer and filmmaker Imraan Christian about his friends and fellow players. “We’re a strange combination of artists, poets, and adventure seekers.” Christian and his mates started playing golf when the musician and former child golf champion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dada Shiva, moved to Cape Town. They fell into the same crowd and after Shiva taught them the ropes, they began playing. Now, the crew are using golf as a way to reclaim their city and, as a group of artists, looking good when they play is just par for the course. Expressing themselves through the sport and with what they choose to wear when playing it are two sides of the same coin. In the process, they’re helping define what the new generation of golf will be and they’re having fun while they’re doing it.’ –
