Barry Oberholzer lived for the first few years of his life in Houston, Texas. He is a brother to three other siblings and is a son of Diplomatic Parents. After spending time in Houston, Barry Oberholzer and his family moved back to South Africa. He began pre school in the charming coastal township of George, South Africa. Barry didn’t stay long in this community, as his dad was transferred again. He and his family would end up in Cape Town, South Africa.
Barry Oberholzer started his twelve year schooling career at Welgemoed Primary School where he stayed until after seventh grade. After Welgemoed, Barry attended Paul Roos Gymnasium, one of the best all boys schools in the world.
During grades eight through twelve, Barry Oberholzer had some of the most memorable moments of his life both on and off the rugby field. He was no different than other boys at that age. Barry had his fair share of general mischief, but was taught the fundamental principles of life through these experiences.
After High School, Barry Oberholzer took a gap year to play rugby abroad and later came back in 2002 to attend the University of South Africa where he received his Bachelors Degree in Marketing.
