Captain Report: January: Pollak Park

Easterns Nomads 2019 calendar got underway on a bright and sunny Saturday morning,

with a field of 140 players gracing the fairways of Pollak Park Golf Club in Springs.

Thanks to Terry, Lindsay and Cathy for being at Pollak at the crack of dawn, thereby ensuring

the field set off on time! Our Tee-starters – Stephen, Neil and Gary, did a fantastic

job of getting the field moving. Interesting that the first fourball’s went around in

just over 2 hours for their first 9!

A big Thank you also, to the pro shop, greenkeeper, staff and members of Pollak Park!

In spite of the fact that the Club was burglarised two nights before the Nomads game,

everything was up and running smoothly on Saturday. Club Captain, Gerhard Gibson

and fellow Nomad, Gavin Adams went the extra mile in ensuring the golfing experience

at Pollak was memorable. From setting up a Nomadic tent under the trees alongside

the 18 th green to re-stocking the pub, nothing was left to chance.

An added word of thanks to Gavin Adams – ISCAR – our local sponsor of the day- for

the generous contribution to Easterns for the prizes. Without our local and/ or national

sponsors, the Nomads Club would really battle to survive as such an active, vibrant and

relevant force in the golfing community.

As the current Captain, I have had the pleasure of handing out our Clubs first 40 year

ties and without exception, it was a very special day when Lesley George Godwin Floyd

was awarded his. Les has been one of the mainstays of our club and a guiding light for

many of the clubs around the country for the past 40 years. The effort, support and

dedication along with his selfless giving of time and expertise, is appreciated by Nomads

countrywide. In acknowledgement of these facts, Easterns was pleased to host 28 visiting

Nomads for the game at Pollak Park, including our National Chairman, Andrew Bullen.

All these players had entered especially to be able to celebrate this momentous

occasion with Les.


Captains Report

Pollak Park Golf Club

Thank-you to Gary Bray, himself a past National Chairman and Easterns Captain, for his

contribution to the momentous occasion! I’m sure it took a fair deal of preparation to

compress so many accomplishments and an impromptu fines session into one really

well planned and executed speech in Les’ honour!! Derick Lindsay and Rob Gordon put

the cherry on the cake of Les’ Nomads achievement by facilitating the personalised hat

and commemorative plaque! Well Done all round!

A big welcome to our new Nomads - Ricu Viljoen and Henk Klopper, who were inducted

by Andrew Bullen. We wish you both fantastic Nomadic golfing experiences with Easterns

and hope to see you on the fairway’s and participating in all of the different Easterns

activities. Remember the motto – It’s not what Nomads can do for you, it’s what

YOU can do for Nomads!

January/ February is a busy Nomads month. By the time you read this report, Hector’s

Andrew Mentis golf day will be done and dusted! Hot on the heels of the Andrew Mentis

day is the Captains Cup and then Fellowship day, the second week in February. Good

luck to both Hector and Stephen and the players of the Captains Cup. I hope we are

able to add a few more trophies to our already impressive haul this year!

See you at Reading on Sunday morning the 17 th of February.

TO ENCOURAGE THE GAME OF GOLF AS A SOURCE OF SERVICE. TO MEET OTHER NO-

MADS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, ONCE A MONTH, TO BUILD FRIENDSHIPS WHILE

PLAYING GOLF.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors

What a great entry for the day! I had so many entries

that I was forced to turn visitors away. Unfortunately, I

had a couple of last minute withdrawals.

Well done Nomads, let us try to keep this up on a

monthly basis!

Congratulations to Les on this momentous occasion of

receiving your 40 year tie, and to all the other recipients

of awards. A warm welcome to Ricu and Henk. I

hope that you will have a long association with Nomads.

A very special thank you to Phanuel, Cathy and Lindsay

for all their help at the game!
