Marko Kaljuveer is a new President of EGA

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Estonian Golf Association has chosen Marko Kaljuveer, a former Head of Sport for 14 years at our national broadcasting ERR as its new President for next 3 years. We went to EGA and asked about his vision for Estonian Golf:

Mr.Kaljuveer is well experienced sports commentator who started his career with Atlanta Olympic Games back in 1996. After 9 Olympics, 10 football Euros & World Cups with 24 years of active sports life on screen in total we believe he can transform his TV experience into golf and bring Estonian golf-life to limelight in both, nationally and internationally. It’s ain’t no easy job as with 9 courses and 2000+ players in total over past 20 years golf is really a new sport in Estonia. “My priorities are to help our young and talented players  to become professionals on tour. Also I would love to get more media attention on Golf as we got many beautyful courses like Saare Golf, White Beach Golf, EGCC & Niitvälja Golf where is really enjoyable to play” said mr. Kaljuveer on his interview for Estonian Golf Blog last Wednesday.

We wish him a good luck and wisdom to take Estonian Golf to the next level ! Hopefully he can play more golf this year as well : )

My Kind of Hole in One

Friday, November 21st, 2014

When I started my little blog 5 years ago I had a dream that maybe someday I would be good enough to write for a golf magazine. This day came last Summer when I was asked by the Golf magazine editor Ivika Liblik if I would be so kind and translate my own story of the European Ladies Amateur Championship for their magazine, which I agreed. Then, few weeks later, she asked me again if I would take interviews and write a story of National Stroke-Play Championship which was played at EGCC. Well, I could not refuse either. And finally just one week after Mr. Barack Obamas state visit called me Golf Magazine owner & manager Monika Kuzmina and asked if I would work with them on a cover-story of mr. President ??? As it felt like a good challenge, I investigated the matter and did this as well together with Jaan-Ivo Lukas who wrote the political part of it. Honestly, after writing all those 3 stories I just felt like if I was standing on par 3 and hitting my first hole in one! :) Luckily I have done this twice in my life already and I know the feeling well.  So, here it is for You – the latest Golf magazine of 2014 which will be released on coming Tuesday.  Enjoy it folkes !!
