Captains Report

Germiston Golf Club

Germiston, 8 th September 2019- Captains Report

We returned to Germiston for the second time this year

due to the restructured schedule. What became

immediately apparent was the improvement in the course itself due in the main to a lot

of hard work and the few drops of rain that fell the week before. We have been extremely

lucky weather wise this year with yet another perfect day for golf, chilly at first

but quickly warming up. Terry and Cathy, our early birds, were as per usual up and running

and as efficient as always making registration a quick affair, well done. Gavin Adams

got the field rolling with the help of starters Henk Klopper and Jaco Smit, thank you

gents. I had a very pleasant four ball with club captain Rodney Hendry (Gauteng) and

Glen Dalton with our sponsor of the Day Mark Ablett & Matt Dudley from Thuthuka

Welding. A big thank you to Germiston for the course condition which I thought was

excellent and I’m sure Mike King with his 43 points thinks it’s the greatest golf course in

the world. One cannot thank a sponsor like Thuthuka enough. Besides the monthly

game Mark and Matt Dudley are always willing to help out on away tours, Andrew Mentis,

Memorial Day and any other Nomads activity. Both are past captains proving their

commitment to the Nomads cause. Words don’t suffice, thank you both.

As I’ve said before its always enjoyable handing out awards at the game.

Tie awards went to:

15 years: Stuart “Whackhead” Simpson and Gino Contini.

10 years: Warren Brits

5 years: Johan Kruger

Well done gentlemen and thank you for your long serving support

A well-deserved silver salver to Trevor Cooke for his 40 pointer earlier in the year.


Captains Report

Germiston, 8 th September 2019- Captains Report

On the weekend of 24 th /25 th August 21 Easterns Nomads went off to play the Glenbrynth

Challenge at Highland Gate. This is a great venue for a tour and we compete in 3

competitions over 2 days versus Swaziland, Gauteng, Northerns and Lowveld. Rob Gordon

did a great job coordinating with the other clubs with Lowveld as hosts.

Results:

LES Trophy (Swazi, Easterns, Lowveld): Winner Easterns

Quadrangular (Gauteng, Lowveld, Northerns, Easterns): Winner Easterns

Glenbrynth Challenge (all 5 clubs): Winner Gauteng by 0.05 point over Easterns

Well done team and to the rest of you please try and make this trip next year it is truly a

great tournament.

The 13 th and 14 th September heralded the 19 th version of the Botswana Nationals with

Easterns having 18 players for South Africa. Hot, dry weather greeted us but the cowboy

bar was an excellent refuge from the heat. Some of us scored well and others not too

good, Mark Hughes charged out with a 40 pointer on Friday but faded badly in the Saturday

sun. Well done to Botswana on a great weekend of good laughs and fun. Many

tales to tell but as we say “what goes on tour stays on tour”. Les Floyd made a cameo

appearance for the first swing of a club in 4 years on Friday and shot a very credible 25

points. This was a first for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not often you have to ask

warthogs to please get out of the way in order to play your shot.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors

Spring has sprung!

After a chilly start to the day, the temperature

warmed up, and it became a great day for a round

of golf!

The scores were quite low for the day, excepting for

Mike King, who burned the course up on 43 points!

Congratulations on such a superb round of golf!

Reading CC

The day ran flawlessly, and results were out before

our captain had finished his shower! J

A huge thank you to the Germiston team, and Rod

Hendry and Glen Dalton for their hospitality and

welcome to their club! The little details, of sausages

and chips, and pizzas did not go unnoticed, and

were greatly appreciated by all the chaps! Thank

you!
