Reading, 4 th August 2019- Captains Report

Once again another perfect golf day greeted us at

Reading. The day was a special one as it was the National

Chairman’s visit. A warm welcome for Neels Bezuidenhout (NC) and his travelling band of Free

Staters that joined us namely: Pierre Goosen (Capt), Johan Tereblanche (VC), Henry Johnson and

Louis Lange. A lekker kuier was had on Saturday night and on Sunday evening.

Having Neels in our midst made for a special occasion for those receiving awards;

Mike Swemmer and Jimmy Goldie both getting their 40 year ties and playing with Jimmy Sales and

Robin Wrighton meant the combined membership years were 166 plus the games total of 1820.

What an unbelievable achievement, we as a club stand in awe.

Mark Ablett, last year’s cappie, received his 25 year tie another milestone to be

admired. To add to this we had Mike King receive his 5 year tie and inducted 2 new members in

Chris Vosloo and Steve Davis. Well done to all of you.

A big thank you to Gary Bray and Mark Smith of AA Alloys for sponsoring the day. My four ball

consisted of Gary, Neels and the club vice-captain James Phillips, who has

expressed an interest in joining our organisation.

Terry and Lindsay ran the table like clockwork and it was great to see that everyone paid

beforehand. Gavin Adams along with Mike Fick and Warren Brits got the field off ahead of time.

The National chair was impressed by the dress standard by all players on the day,

commenting that it was great to see all Nomads in correct attire. Well done and thank you all who

played. Lamb chop had the wrong colour shirt but it is still Nomads attire.

A big hand to Gavin and his team on holding the Memorial Day at Pollak Park on the 20 th . Good

fun was had and a lot of new players exposed to the Nomads brand. A total of R36000 was raised

to support the Benoni SPCA, a very deserving cause.

Our next adventure is the Glenbrynth Challenge at Highland Gate where we defend 3 titles

Please support our Andrew Mentis fundraisers with the Barnyard taking place on 15 th August.

Membership Report

Prospective Members


As August arrived, so did the dreaded August Gusts!

The course was in an amazing condition, and set up really

tough for all our champs ;-) ….as the average of the

day reflects.

Reading CC

Our day went by without any hitches. Everyone arrived

timeously and the field ran smoothly. I am happy to report

that everyone paid before the day, despite a couple

of reminders having to be sent out, and me constantly

nagging the same few culprits! Thank you guys, it really

does make my life so much simpler on the day!

Special thank you to Lindsay for helping at the table!

Looking forward to seeing you all at our next early morning,

in Germiston!
