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

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
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
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.
GAME / FANCOURT MONTAGU
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
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.

I played with Steve Twycross, the Knysna
Captain, Hiron Snell, Sponsor for the day and Jimmy Leggett who

The course was as always in magnificent
condition and I congratulate Peter Oosthuizen and his greens committee

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

GAME / PLETTENBERG BAY
GOLF CLUB May 2015
Waking up early on Sunday morning was really
difficult after feeling the effects of our anniversary dinner the night
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
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

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

had a good time out there but the golf was poor and we ended up with
the worst playing four ball.

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
