Captains Report

GOLD CUP

Our biggest field of the year was met with

heavy dark clouds and the threat of rain.

We managed to get everyone off to start the

round but it soon became obvious that

finishing the round was not going to be possible with squalls of heavy

rain being interspersed with misty type drizzle. With almost all the players

having completed 9 holes the decision was made to call off the day.

The decision was met with great applause as the drowned rat look was

becoming common. A pity the weather didn’t play along as the BCC

course was in wonderful condition. A massive thank you to Darren

Millington and his staff for going beyond the call of duty in making the

day a success.

To Graeme Wood of Cargo Motors a big thank you for your sponsorship

and for providing great prizes over and above the normal monetary sponsorship.

The prizes sponsored by Taylormade for Gold Cup are also much

appreciated and to Europcar for their contribution in the national knockout

competition in which Easterns had 3 pool winners, the overall winner

was from WP in Victor Boyd. To Motus for the sponsorship of the Challenge

competition, where the winner of each Nomads club goes to play

at Champagne Sports. Take your ‘A’game Pieter Botha.

Terry, Cathy and Lindsay once again had to perform under pressure to

get results calculated for the monthly game and the Gold Cup results.

Naturally and as always they did not falter. Congratulations and fantastically

well done to the Early Birds. Our chief starter , Gavin Adams, and tee

starters in Brett Skinner and Joe Gumede braved the elements and had

the field running ahead of schedule.


Captains Report

Gold Cup

I had great fun in my 4 ball with

Darren Millington (who can play a pretty

good game), Graeme Wood and Connor Ivins,

a young 18 year old that only took up the

game a year ago and plays off 7. Connor quickly learnt that a golf ball is

never referred to as just a ball, there are a string of words ahead of it.

The Gary Player Knockout Trophy and Plate finals were postponed by

unanimous decision by the players to be played over 18 holes later, all

parties agreed that this was a fairer result than one contrived by formulas.

Congratulations to all our trophy winners for the year. See the results

elsewhere in the magazine.

Special mention to Piet Botha, our Golfer of the year, great comeback

after almost 3 years away due to ill health.

Our Andrew Mentis day was played at Kempton Park on the 24 th November

and was a great success. Well done to VC Stephen Malherbe and his

committee. It does pain me to see the field for this prestigious fundraiser

shrinking each year and I implore Nomads to bring friends/family to support

this day. Please come forward with suggestions as to how we can

improve and increase the participation.

The ever popular Mystery tour took place on the 30 th November and

after a chase around eastern Pretoria, which included breakfast at Cullinan

Golf club we eventually arrived at Bankenveld on the shores of Witbank

dam. In complete contrast to our GC game this was played in searing

heat. Well done to Rob Gordon on organising another wonderful tour.

A big up in that no player had to pay for any drink or food during the entire

trip as all costs were covered in the entry fee.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors

Membership Report

Prospective Members


Who would have suspected that we would be playing in

14 degree conditions in the middle of December for our

Gold Cup???

Everyone arrived timeously to get the game underway on

a very wet course, all geared up for the persistent raining

conditions, which got worse and worse throughout the

day.

Eventually we had to call it a day!

Thank you to my ladies who were able to help me collect

all the cards, and process them with the “Duckworth

Lewis” system. I can’t tell you how much I value your

support!

Thank you to each one of you for making this a very successful

Nomads Year.

I have really enjoyed working for you all!
