Captains Report

Modderfontein Golf Club

Modderfontein, 13 th October 2019- Captains Report

Our first game at Modderfontein in the summer for a while was met with very hot

weather and then a thundershower late in the day. The rain didn’t last long enough to

cause any problems. Some decent showers will be gratefully received by all clubs in this

searing heat.

Terry and Cheryl, our early birds, were there bright and early to get the day off to a

start. A big thank you to them once again. Gavin Adams had appointed Steve Davis and

Rooster Naude to assist in the starting with the field running on time, well done and

thank you guys.

I must thank Dave Diesel and Peter Bailey for pitching in as sponsors for the day as our

original sponsor was unable to oblige. It always amazes me how lucky we are to have

members that react to the situation so quickly. My fourball consisted of these two gents

and club chairman, Tony Fernandes, an old friend of Nomads that has participated in

many Golforama events. Great conversation and discussion on new handicap rules but

not very good golf.

Congratulations to former captain Vic Langkilde on receiving his 10 year tie.

We are happy to announce two new members that have returned to the Nomads community.

Johnny Swanepoel joins from the Free State and Mike Drummond returns after

a short absence from Lowveld.

On Friday 11 th October the Andrew Mentis fundraiser night golf was held at Serengeti

Par 3 course. A good field had entered and the evening was well organised by our VC

Stephen Malherbe and Steve Bouwer. Well done guys and thanks to the ladies that

helped and to all those that sponsored prizes. A few lessons were learnt and I’m sure

these will be applied next year. Glenbrynth were also kind enough to give us a whisky

tasting experience and our gratitude goes out to Derek Cuthbert and his team.

Modderfontein, 13 th October 2019- Captains Report

Later in the month 18 of our members plus Les set off to Swaziland for their nationals.

This ia the most popular of all nationals and admittedly getting into the team is difficult

as our representation has been halved from the early days. As usual it was a great experience

and well organised. The incredible heat created thirsts and the Cowboy bar

thrived. Watching the quarter final between the Biks and Japan was quite an experience

for those of us that tee’d off early.

Our next game on 3 rd November at Lake is a shotgun start at 6:30am. This is an experiment

that has been requested on a national scale. Please ensure you are at the course

between 5:30 and 5:45. Registering of your round will be up to you on any of the clubs 2

terminals or can be done on a smartphone. Please report to the ladies to pay if and record

your score predictions, pay to go etc. the only difference will be that Terry won’t be

opening your round on the computer. Bring a towel for showering as there will be pressure

at the end. The ladies showers will be available to shower in.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors
