Monthly Game: Captain's Report Knysna game

Dear Fellow Nomads

It was once again my privilege to act as Captain at the November game at Knysna. It is always special to play at my home club and as usual the staff and club went out of their way to ensure the success of our day. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with the club captain Sean Tanner and thank him, his committee and members for allowing us the privilege of the use of their facilities and course. I was delighted to present our Vice Captain, Christo Langenhoven, with his ten year tie and I also had the privilege of inducting new Nomad Stig Holmberg and we wish him a long and happy association with our club. I congratulate Steve Twycross who despite the wind scored an excellent 40 points. Well done, Steve!

The weather played its part and a good field had an excellent day crowned with a most impressive prize table sponsored by Peter Leibbrandt and PLC Motors, Knysna. On behalf of the committee, Peter, I thank you most sincerely, for your generosity. I thank, too Berti and our Pink Ladies for their amazing dedication to ensuring our golfing pleasure.

Monthly Game - Pinnacle Point 10 June 2016

Sunday the 10th of July 2016 is a date to remember.

 As I arrived at Pinnacle Point I realized this is going to be one of the best days for golf on Pinnacle Point ever.

 The sea was calm, there was no wind and it was a beautiful sunny day. A day specially picked for our National Chairman's visit.

 07h30; we started off with a meeting between the committee and the National Chairman.

 At 09h00 the fun and games started. All the players looked quite excited to play. The golf course was in a excellent condition and the management and staff were very friendly and helpful.

 The sponsor of the day, Diff de Villiers, couldn't make it because of flu but sponsored a beautiful prize table. A big thank you to Diff. All sponsors were acknowledged.

 We had four visiting Nomads, eight visitors and four Waitlisted Nomads.

It was a day of great fun with some good and some not so good scores.

 Thanks to all involved making a day like this happen.

Monthly game/Gold Cup Goose Valley 10 April 2016

 Dear Fellow Nomads,

I had an early start for the Goose Valley game, because today was a big day. It was Gold Cup, and my final day as Captain.

As always Tannah and Berti were there first and were setting up station. Not long after that Nomads started arriving and registration was up and running.

I had the pleasure of playing with Ian Bloom, the past captain of Goose Valley golf club. Goose Valley golf course was in an excellent condition and the fairways looked like a carpet.

Our game sponsor of the day was Stanmar Motors and was represented by Neil Perks. Neil please pass on our thanks to your company for a wonderful prize table. We really value your sponsorship.

I had the pleasure of inducting Willem de Voogt into Nomads. Willem I know you will have many great years with us.

Well done to all the Gold Cup Divisional winners and to David Eveleigh for winning the MFC Challenge. Well done to Ken Spencer on winning the Glenbrynth raffle draw.

I also had the pleasure of presenting Honorary membership to two of our members, Terry Dimatellis and Flats Huisamen. Congratulations Gentlemen.

Once again I would like to take this opportunity to thank my committee for all their support during my year as Captain and also thank those Beautiful Pink Ladies that always look after us at every game.

Finally I would like to wish Marcel all the best for his year as Captain of Southern Cape. May he guide Southern Cape Nomads to new heights.

Monthy game Knysna October 2015

 

Dear Fellow Nomads

By the time I arrived at Knysna Golf club I found Chrisleo Botha, our equipment officer, already hard at work erecting the altar and the Pink Ladies at their posts.  We met early for a meeting with Gary Rodwell, our National Chairman. After a fairly heavy night with Gary and a number of Nomads celebrating the Springboks fine win against Scotland it had not been easy getting up so early and I was very pleased to have a ďhomeĒ game. The club and course looked fantastic when I arrived and I was very proud of my club.

Our meeting with Gary, our National Chairman, was a most fruitful and beneficial one and it was good to realise that the Southern Cape Nomad Club was functionally well. We have a good group of members and Gary challenged each one of us to do our best to raise the numbers. He did, however, compliment us on the large group we have on the waiting list as prospective Nomads.

My fourball consisted of Gary Rodwell, John Edwards, the President of Knysna Golf Club and Terry Dimatellis. With the previous evening taking its toll we were not among the prize winners but had a great time and the company could not have been better!

I thank Herman Kapp, of Food Lovers Market, Knysna who was a most wonderful and generous sponsor for the day.  I thank Berti and Helen who, although short staffed did their usual amazing job. Thank you Ladies!

My experiment of trying different Fines Masters each month I believe is working and Chrisleo did an excellent job of raising funds in a most light hearted manner.

It was my privilege to induct Piet Putty van Rensburg as a new Nomad. We wish him a long and hoppy association with our club.

As the club captain, I would like to put on record both my thanks  and congratulations to my committee and all our members for the effort you all made during our National Chairmanís official visit. I am extremely proud to be your captain.

MONTHLY GAME / FANCOURT MONTAGU

16THAugust 2015

Dear Nomads,

When I arrived at Fancourt on Sunday I was a little disappointed with the inclement weather, but I was determined it would not dampen my spirits, as we were playing the Montagu course, which is definitely my favourite course at Fancourt.

I had the privilege of playing with Willie van Heerden the Captain of Fancourt, Braam van Hysteen from Tekkie Town our sponsor of the day and our National Chairman Gary Rodwell. What a fantastic four ball and all of them absolute gentlemen. Willie the golf course was in magnificent condition and please pass on our thanks to Lloyd and all the staff of Fancourt for looking after us so well.

Thank you again to our Pink ladies Berti, Helen and Chrisna. We are as a club truly blest to have you. We so appreciate you sitting there for the whole day helping the day go so well.

It was also encouraging to have 6 visitors in our field. I really hope they enjoyed their day and soon see some of them apply for membership.

We also had the reinduction of Shadrack Donson. Shadrack itís great to see you back as a Southern Cape Nomad.

To our sponsor of the day Braam van Hysteen of Tekkie Town, we thank you sincerely for your generous sponsorship. We are very grateful to you and will continue to urge our members to always support you.

In closing I would like to thank my committee and in particular, Seaboard Co-ordinator, Christo Langenhoven, for all you have done this week end. You have all played a huge part in making this Seaboard weekend the success is was and I thank each one of you.

Yours in Nomads

MONTHLY GAME / KNYSNA GOLF CLUB14THJune 2015

Dear Nomads,

By the time I teed off at 9h20 the sun was shining on another glorious Knysna day.

I played with Steve Twycross, the Knysna Captain, Hiron Snell, Sponsor for the day and Jimmy Leggett who received his thirty year tie later.

The course was as always in magnificent condition and I congratulate Peter Oosthuizen and his greens committee for their efforts after all the rain we had recently.

Once again I thank our Pink Ladies for the amazing job they perform month in and month out. We as Southern Cape Nomads are so fortunate to have them working so hard for us while we are on the course enjoying ourselves.

It was a real privilege for me to present Jimmy a founder member with his thirty year tie and a gift. Well done Jimmy, itís great to see you back on the course after all your operations. I also had the pleasure of presenting a 5 year tie to Andre Steyn. 

It was very encouraging to have nine visitors playing with us and I am pleased to report that eight of them applied for membership. I look forward to inducting them shortly. I also inducted a new Nomad Michael Brown. We wish him a long and happy association with Nomads.

I thank Hiron Snell and Lynn Schroeder BMW who were our generous sponsors for the day. Hiron we do value your sponsorship.

Yours in Nomads

MONTHLY GAME / PLETTENBERG BAY GOLF CLUB May 2015     

Dear Nomads,

Waking up early on Sunday morning was really difficult after feeling the effects of our anniversary dinner the night before.

Warren the Captain from Easterns and I left for Plett Golf Club at about 7:25 am. It was a great morning, the gods really smiled on us with beautiful weather on Sunday.

When we arrived at the club it was great to see all the visiting Nomads from all over South Africa playing in our monthly game. Everyone was in great spirits.

The Plettenberg Bay Golf course looked in great condition, the fairways were lush and green and the greens were absolutely beautiful. I had the privilege of playing with our National Chairman Gary Rodwell who was my playing partner for the day and we were up against two Plett Gents one of them being the Captain of Plett Golf Club Glen Witte and our very own Nigel Tipping. We all had a fantastic time, and I really enjoyed their company.

After the game I quickly excused myself and got ready for my first prize giving as Captain. The Pink ladies as always deserve a big hand for their prompt service in getting our score cards tallied and prize sheets ready for prize giving. They also welcomed our very own John Lees on the Eighteenth with some Bubbly for his 200 game.

At prize giving our National Chairman presented John with his 200 game badge. He also presented our re-instated nomad Vic Mol with his Blazer. We had 3 visitors James and Andrew Canny and Eugene Matzner. I hope you enjoyed the day with us.

A big thanks must go out to our Sponsor of the day Frikkie van Eck of MTN. We really value your support and are grateful for your sponsorship, thank you Frikkie.

Well done to Kattie on his first prize giving, you were an absolute pro.

 

Yours in Nomads

Monthly game/Gold Cup George April 2015

Dear Nomads,

 

I have much pleasure in submitting this, my first report as Captain and would at the outset like to place on record my thanks to my club, Southern Cape for placing their confidence in me to lead them over the next year. I assure you all that I will do my best to ensure that our club grows from strength to strength. I also thank our Immediate Past Captain, Ken Spencer for his efforts over the past year and ongoing support for me. Ken you have left ďbig shoesĒ to fill but I know with you behind me and the strong committee that I have Southern Cape has an exciting year ahead. The highlights of my year will undoubtedly be our 30th Anniversary and ending off the year with our Loerie Nationals.

Monthly Game Mossel Bay March 2015

 

Time has gone past so fast and I find myself writing my last Monthly report. Mossel Bay, what a glorious day no wind, and the course is in a beautiful condition. We as Nomads are truly blessed to be able to play all these wonderful golf courses. Arrived at Mossel Bay at 07:30 and found everybody busy setting up and getting ready for the day. We had and early start because the game would be followed by our AGM before prize giving. I had the pleasure of playing with  Marcell Combrinck  who represented the Sponsor of the day MIDAS and the Club Manager Louw Strydom  and Tannah Harris. We had a good time out there but the golf was poor and we ended up with the worst playing four ball.

The AGM was well attended and went well without any hitches. We had 2 nomineesí for JVC position and after a ballot was held Cristo Langenhoven was chosen. The full report will be given in the minutes of the AGM.

Steve Twycross was the fines master and as usual did a fine job. Prize giving went off without any problems and thanks must go to Ferdi and Vice Captain Dave. We must thank our sponsor Midas    for a wonderful prize table we, do appreciate it .To our Pink Ladies once again thank you for all you do to help me( only one more ) and on behalf of SC Nomads thank you. To all the Nomads that supported and helped me during my time as Captain I salute you.

Monthly Game Oudtshoorn February 2015

 

I really had a wonderful weekend in Oudtshoorn. Arrived on Friday afternoon met up with friends and had a lovely meal and a few bottles of wine. Saturday morning did a bit of shopping and a little bit of site seeing. We played at Oudtshoorn Golf Club in their Saturday Competion. Frankie Brown came 2nd and Hein Waters 3rd . After the game we went to the Cango Cave Resort where we met Fellow Nomads and had a (lekker ) braai. I must thank Kattie and his good lady for all the arrangements and venue it was greatly appreciated. To Joan my wife for supplying all the salads and eats also greatly appreciated. To all that contributed and attended thank you.

Arrived at the club on Sunday morning a little bit the worse for over indulging the night before. After a wonderful breakfast I was raring to go. John and I had a Pre- induction meeting with Theo Adams before we teed off. We were all pleasantly surprised with the condition of the course seeing that they have just got through a heat wave. Unfortunately Paul Strubbel their captain could not play with us, but he was there to welcome us. I must thank you all for first showering and then having the good stuff it speeds up prize giving. To Flats and his starters thanks for getting us off on time. To the Pink Ladies as always professionals, courteous and on time thank you. I had the honour to induct Theo Adams  and welcome him to Nomads. To Arthur thanks for being fines master. To Dave thanks for prize giving.

The next game at Mossel Bay is also our AGM we have a few nominated candidates for the position of JVC please make and effort to attend as your input is important.

Monthly Game Kingswood January 2015

 

Arrived at Kingswood at 7.30 and could already tell that it was going to be a very hot day. As usually everybody was getting set up and ready for the day. Flats was going to be the main starter and 2 of the new Nomads were on the tee boxes. I had the honour of playing with the sponsor of the day Johan Cronje what a nice person and he went out of his way to make it a wonderful day for us all.  We had a nice field of 72 players and you could see that everybody enjoyed the day.

Prize giving was very early thanks to our organised Pink Ladies. Prize giving went off very well thanks to Vice Dave Meyer it is always a pleasure to work with you. Steve Twycross named the team that is going to Nationals. Les Marais requested that more Nomads volunteer to assist with the Di Data tournament in February. I had the privilege to award Steve Twycross his 15 year tie and to thank him personally for what he has done for Nomads and for all the assistance and advice that he has given me. Luc Meeusen also received his 5 year tie.

I asked the members to think very carefully before nominating a candidate for the position of JVC. As this a 4 year commitment and if he does not see out his commitment he sets the whole system back. As subs are now due the members that have not payed will not have a vote at the AGM AT Mossel Bay. Our next Game is at Oudthoorn  on the 15th  February and we are making it an away weekend with Golf on Saturday and Sunday. Please contact me if you are going so that I can make the necessary arrangements.

12  October 2014  Monthly Game - George

 

Left Plettenberg Bay at 06:00 in pouring rain, wondering what was waiting for us at George. Arrived at the Golf Course at 7:30 and to my surprise no rain or wind and it turned out to be a beautiful day for golf. The Pink Ladies were busy setting up and Terry and his team were setting up the Alter. It is a wonderful experience knowing that you have a team that you can rely on, and I thank you one and all for your dedication to Nomads.

I had the privilege to play with the Club Captain Mike Steyn and I thanked him for the privilege of playing on their beautiful course. George remains one of the best courses in the Southern Cape. My thanks to the starters for getting the field off on time. Nigel Tipping played his 400th game today and it was a privilege to meet him on the 18th green and share a glass of champagne with him and his 4 ball. Prize giving was held soon after the last players were in and I must thank the Pink Ladies again for the wonderful work and dedication to Southern Cape. I had the honour to induct Gerry Olivier to our fold, and wished him well for the future. Next month we will induct 2 more players and re-instate 1. Marcel Meiring our new JVC received his 100th game badge and Nigel Tipping his 400th   Game Badge( if you play 12 games a year it will take you 33years and 3 Month) to achieve this) so well done Nigel. Terry Dimatellis has pledged to supply the whiskey and milk in the morning until the new Sponsors have been sorted out. Terry has also donated the golf bags for the draw until the end of the year. Terry I personally thank you for this fine gesture and I think every Nomad will drink to your good health every game.

June2014  Monthly Game -  Plettenberg Bay

 

We were blessed with a beautiful day to play golf. I asked the committee to attend a meeting before tee off time to discuss a few matters that were very important. Thank you to you all for attending i know  some of you had to leave very early to be in Plettenberg Bay by 8:30  I must thank the manager and staff for setting up the Pink Ladies  table and all  the other requirements that were needed, and the staff that helped to carry all the equipment  from the trailer.

I had the pleasure of playing with the Captain of Plett Glen Witte and two visitors. We had a wonderful game and saw some places on this course (my home course) that i did not know existed. My compliments to the Captain on a beautiful and well manicured golf course one to be proud of. The course was wet after all the rain that fell during the week  but did not stop Willem Braaff from shooting a 40 pointer and holing out on the 11th hole for his first hole in one.

We welcomed Jacques Matthee back to Nomads as he is now a full member of Still Bay . We also welcomed Hiron Snell and Michael Self back and following the reinstatement policy will be reinstated after 3 games. I had the honour of doing my first prize giving and really had a full program.  Flats Huisamen received his 200 game badge there were 3 x 15 year ties awarded 2 x 10 year ties and 1 x  5 year tie. I also had the pleasure of awarding 2 of our PINK LADIES  Bertie Harris and Helen Towell their 10 year badges.  My thanks to my VC Dave Meyer the prize giving went off without a hitch. To Marcell Meiring  as fines master in( Afrikaans) you had the members in fits of laughter and  raised quite a bit for charities, well done. To our Pink Ladies, thank you once again for the speed and efficiency in doing the prize sheet, and in the way you welcome our members at registration. To the DE Lange brothers for setting up and assisting at prize giving. I do not think that the members realise what goes in to being equipment officer.

Mossel Bay monthly game and Gold Cup 13 April 2014

Left home at 05:30 to Mossel Bay wondering what the next year had installed for me. As the sun came up and revealed what a glorious day it was going to be my fears fell away and i realised that it is going to be a great year as Captain of a great bunch of good guys.

Arrived at the club and as usually found everybody doing their thing. The Pink Ladies were set up, Terry  was busy setting up the Alter and Steve was busy with the Gold Cup table.  There was not much that i could do to help so i went and had breakfast. I was introduced to our Sponsor of the day  Neal Perks from Mercedes Benz.  We are really blessed by having such good sponsors the prize table was overflowing. I had the pleasure of playing with Neal and i think that he is their secret weapon to bring back as many prizes that he can. Needless to say he shot a 41 pointer off a 6 handicap, Neal well played.

I also played with the Captain from MBGC  Gavin Reynolds what a scholar and a gentleman and a very good golfer he shot 37 points off a 5. I must congratulate him on the fine condition of his Golf Course and also thank him for the way they welcomed and assisted us. To the Pink Ladies what can a person say, with the monthly game and Gold Cup  prize sheets to do. I estimated the time of Prize Giving but was proven wrong by 45 minutes when the Pink Ladies announced that they were ready, well done.

Prize Giving went well with no hitches thanks to Terry and Steve. There was a wonderful atmosphere and everybody seem to be enjoying them selves .I must congratulate all the prize winners, well done gentlemen.  I was then inducted as Captain by Steve Twycross Imm.Past Captain and i must thank Steve for all he has done for me  during my JVC and VC.year. To Berti and Tannah thank you for always being there for me. To our new Committee thank for your commitment to help run the Southern Cape Nomads 2014.To all my friends and Nomads that came and congratulated me i can only say that i will do my best. To Dave Meyer well done and i hope that you will enjoy your year as much as i did. To Errol Frielick well done and may your year be rewarding.

Near perfect conditions prevailed at a near perfect golf club, George golf club is in great condition.

Our normal sized field moved well through the course and we finished well within time.

As is the norm in the Southern Cape, dress code on the course and in the club house was strictly adhered to, our equipment officer has a wonderful display of our range of clothing,at the check in table.

Prize giving, obviously, was a longer than normal affair , the prize table was spectacular. Local sponsor, Stanmar Motors, did us proud. We must continue our good relationship with our local sponsors.

 

Etienne Du Plessis was awarded a 15 year tie while Hugh Collier attained his 300 game badge, well done gentlemen.

Good Day All,

Herewith report of game at Mossel Bay and A.G.M.

Perfect conditions greeted us at Mossel Bay, the course had been set up reasonably easy in anticipation of a bit of wind, which did not arrive.

The condition of the course is as good as any other in our part of the world, as the day wore on the greens became faster and easier for some, Mossel Bay ground staff can be very proud of their course.

I had the honour of having Club Captain, Gavin Reynolds, and sponsor, Dicky Swanich, owner of Cobra Transport, in my 4 ball .Nomads can be very thankful for Cobra Transport coming in as sponsors at such late notice, a great prize table greeted us at the end of the day.

Three inductions Ė Maydie Otto as a Pink Lady & Willie Balt and Coena V.D. Merwe. Welcome gentlemen and lady, I hope you enjoy your time with us, remember Nomads is not what you can get out but what you put in .

Prize giving was held after the A.G.M.

 

 The A.G.M. went of well without any problems, Terry Otto was elected to the position of Junior Vice Captain.

The Audited financial statement was available to all prior to the meeting, Berti Harris , was on hand to answer any questions and queries.

A summary of the Southern Capes year ,compiled by Acting Captain Steve Twycross, was available prior to the meeting.

There was one question asked regarding the Gold Cup Day and the Million Dollar at Sun City being on the same day and whether we could change our dates, it was explained that at this time of the year it was not easy to get a golf course later on in the month.

I was very disappointed by the amount of people who left before the A.G.M. the main purpose of the A.G M. is to make our financial. statement available to all and to elect officials to the committee. To those who did stay, thank you.

 

Knysna October 2012

 

The 21st of October was rained out, Knysna management were good enough to accommodate us on the following weekend

A small field moved well through the course, which was in amazing condition considering the amount of rain experienced in the last week or so. The members of Knysna can be very proud of their course and clubhouse.

As usual we were well received and all staff helpful.

I had the pleasure of, once again, being in the same 4 ball as Club Captain Mike Mills, always a pleasure.

Prize giving started with the creed being read for our friend Danny De Wet.No Man Is an  Island.

Two ex/old Nomads were reinducted , Errol Freilick and Andre Zeelie, and Past National Chairman, John Lees, was officially welcomed into our club, only real men wear Pink.   Gentlemen we hope your enjoy your time with us.

I was very pleased to see our visitors observing our dress code at prize giving, on the course may have been a little sloppy.

Nomads as usual were well dressed and well behaved, it was good to see the spirit after the game, the verandah was a very happy place.

The Pink Ladies, as usual , perfect, many thanks, without you we wander in the wilderness.

Terry . thank you for the prize table, your little helpers do a great job in your absence. The sponsor was a local Nomad.

Terry Otto and family, a great job, we have never been so well dressed.
