CAPTAINS REPORT: JUNE

A crisp, clear winter’s morning greeted Easterns Nomads for their monthly game on the 9 th of

June at State Mines CC. In true Easterns’ spirit, a good tot of Glenbrynth with a shot of milk,

warmed everyone up before the round! The weather gods were on our side once again and everyone

soon forgot we were almost in the middle of winter!

Thanks to our starters for the day – Stephen, Nickey and Frans – for a great job in setting the field

off on time. A good pace of play was maintained for the morning with the field turning timeously!

The slick greens and well maintained fairways made for a most enjoyable round of golf. Thank

you to SCC Members and staff for the use of your course!

A special mention to my playing partners, Peter Retief, Jan Delport and Werner Marais for their

company and patience with my shank and shot standard of golf at the moment!

As always, no game would be complete without the generosity of our Sponsors. A double word of

thanks to Allen Purchase for being sponsor of the day in his personal capacity, as well as fines

master! Much appreciated!!

To our special table ladies this month, Terry and Lindsay - Thank you for all that you do for Easterns

in helping to make our monthly games run smoothly! Our ever efficient prize master, Derick

Lindsay, once again managed to excel with his prize selection! Well done Derick! Congratulations

to all who received tie awards and game badges – especially Albert Otto (35 year tie award)!

Finally, thank you to those who have supported Hector with the fund raising efforts he has presented

thus far (Barnyard and Agony Draw) ! Funds raised will go to really worthy causes!

Please remember the Memorial Day on the 28 th of July at Pollock Park contact either Stephen

Malherbe or Gavin Adams to secure a 4 ball

Until our next monthly game – keep our mission statement in mind …

Great Golf one liners :

• Golf is like chasing a quinine pill around a cow pasture:

Winston Churchill

• It took me seventeen years to get 3,000 hits in baseball.

I did it in one afternoon on the golf course: Babe Ruth

• Columbus went around the world in 1492. That isn't a lot

of strokes when you consider the course: Lee Trevino

• These greens are so fast I have to hold my putter over the

ball and hit it with the shadow: Sam Snead

• If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up

the wrong golf ball: Jack Lemmon

• The people who gave us golf and called it a game are the

same people who gave us bag pipes and called it music: Anon

• I would like to deny all allegations by Bob Hope that during

my last game of golf, I hit an eagle, a birdie, an elk and a

moose: Gerald Ford

• After all these years, it's still embarrassing for me to play

on the American golf tour. Like the time I asked my caddie

for a sand wedge and he came back ten minutes later

with a ham on rye: Chi Chi Rodriguez
