POLLAK PARK

Pollak Park, 18 January 2020- Captains Report

A happy new year and decade to all of you.

May it be prosperous and everything good you wish for. A strong field

assembled for the first game of the year; weather was threatening just as

in December but we got through with only the last 3 fourballs getting

wet. This was a game with some new challenges as Terry was in Australia,

this has been done before but this time her e-mails crashed so chaos

reigned. Nevertheless, Terry got everything done on time, and the day

ran smoothly. Once again, a fantastic job done.

The early birds were Lindsay Rees and Cheryl Lindsay (how often do you

have a Lindsay at each end) supported by Matilda (Matt) Dudley. The table

ran perfectly, scoring was all good. A person cannot give enough

praise to the wonderful ladies that turn out monthly to make our golf day

a success. Gents next game just give a little thank you to them. Don’t

worry too much about Matilda.

On a sad note one of our truly dedicated Nomads passed away on 31 st

December, PW Botha (Krokodil). Here was a man who in a little over 5

years packed so much of Nomads into his life. His entire being revolved

around Nomads, playing, doing Golforama at every conceivable opportunity.

He left this earth dressed in his blues. To the Botha family our sincerest

condolences. Easterns Nomads were honoured to have him as a

member. MHSRIP.

Pollak Park, 18 January 2020- Captains Report

Much appreciation to our sponsor for the day,

ISCAR and the MD Gavin Adams, thank you.

To our starters Gavin, Dewies van Deventer and Wikus Nel, great job and

once again the field on time.

A big thank you to the club, Robbie van Velzen, the greens staff and all

involved. The course was in great condition with the greens exceptional.

A new thing for us is no placing on the fairways as we abide by the new

rules and the fairways allowed for this without any complaint. My fourball

consisting of 3 Pollak members namely Gerhard Gibson (club capt),

Stuart Anderson and Colin Viljoen had a superb time and I cannot believe

that we finished outside of the winners’ circle (Matilda??).

Earlier in January Stephen (VC) and myself attended the prize giving for

the Nomads U/19 Inland golf tournament held at BCC played over 2 days

but comprising of 54 holes. Always nice to be part of these events and

see the young talent that SA has. A young 12 year old managed to ace the

11 th , no mean feat.

See you all at Serengeti.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors

Great excitement to see one another after a break! There was a

festive atmosphere at Pollak Park, despite the looming storm

clouds!

A massive THANK YOU to Lindsay and Cheryl for stepping in for

me on the day and completing the game so successfully, as I

was still in Australia, but standing by for any need, which was

luckily not necessary!

Eastern’s is really lucky to have such willing and able ladies at

the helm!

Our next game will be at Serengeti which will be exciting and

challenging!

Really good to be taking a monthly game back there!

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 13 th February!
