What began as a very chilly morning at State Mines, soon warmed up
and turned out to be a lovely day in the sunshine.
The field ran very smoothly, with everyone arriving and teeing off timeously.
Despite a few hiccups with the scoring system, we were able to get prize
giving underway very soon after the last 4 balls had showered!
A huge thank you to Kevin and his efficient team at State Mines, for all
the help and support and assisting to make the day such a success!
Our next game will be a weekday game at Serengeti. Get your entries
and payments in timeously, to ensure your slot at this game!

As we find ourselves in the middle of the third covid – 19 wave, its important to remain safe, take all the
necessary pre-cautions and adhere to all regulations provided for by the golf courses. Taking this into
account we will not be having a prize giving at our next monthly game at Germiston Golf Club on Sunday
afternoon 18 July 2021.
The best way out, is always through “Robert Frost”
Until we meet on the fairways of Germiston, stay safe.
I certainly do miss seeing you all when working online,
however working from the comforts of home also have
their own merits!
As usual the team at Serengeti was very professional to
work with and I thank them for all the help!
It is a huge pity that there was such a small field, but we
all understand with this huge third wave upon us there
were unforeseeable circumstances for many. Those guys
and families suffering Covid, I wish you all a speedy recovery,
and hope to see you all on the fairways soon!
In the mean-time, stay safe and healthy!

During my extended term as Captain I once again am able to experience something that no
other Captain has experienced and that is to be able to play a few courses twice during our
playing calendar and that will be the case for a few games to come. It really has been a rollercoaster
experience and I am looking forward to the 2 nd half of the year, holding thumbs that
we may be able to have a few more familiar golfing experiences as we count down to our final
game of the year, the Cargo Gold Cup. This event will be the culmination of the last 2 years
competitions and crown the winners of the various divisions and competitions, make sure you
diarise Sunday the 28 th of November 2021, it will no doubt be one to remember.
It may seem unbelievable but the last time golf has seen these types of increases in golf
rounds was during the time when Tiger Woods took over the golfing world and attracted many
to the game of golf. Due to most other sports being under lockdown, golf has benefitted from
young and old, from all walks of life wanting to get out doors and enjoy some sort of physical
activity. This is great news for Nomads South Africa as there are more golfers than ever walking
the fairways and thus more possibilities to increase our membership and build on the
amazing work that we have done since inception.
To Eugene Liebenberg and everyone involved at Germiston Golf Club we thank you for your
hospitality and the use of your facilities.

weather warms up, you will all be back on the course,
enjoying our special game.
The Olympic games are coming up, which will be great
TV viewing for us! Enjoy it!
