 3rd NEWSLETTER OF THE LOERIE NATIONALS 2016.

 

Dear Nomads,

 

Greetings from the Heads and Lagoon in Knysna!

 

Only six weeks left before the flags are raised on the 5th March at Knysna Golf Club to mark the start of the 51st National Tournament.

 

The Organizing Committee is at the grindstone and has moved into 4th gear to ensurethat a memorable experience is had by all.

No doubt, this Nationals will once again create special memories that will remain with us long after the flags are lowered on Friday 11th March.

 

The greens Committee of Knysna Golf Club is hard at work ensuring that the course will be in pristine condition for your arrival in March.

 

Transport will be available from and back to the George Airport, which is about 65km from Knysna.

Shuttles will run on different routes throughout the week to transport players to and from the golf course.

Please ensure that you forward your flight details and accommodation venues to your Club Coordinator as soon as possible in order for us to welcome you at the airport on time and to work out transport routes in Knysna.

 

We have three spectacular Ladies tours planned for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

The closing date was the 10th December 2015 but we shall receive late entries at the main registration tables. Your contact person is Patty Lees (pattylees@yahoo.com or 083 612 0261).

The Featherbed outing is extremely popular and can only accommodate a limited number of people. Here we shall work on a first come first served basis.

NB!!  Please note the Featherbed outing has been moved from the Monday to the Tuesday 8th March.

The other days have been left open for the Ladies to explore all the sites and shops that Knysna has to offer or to experience the wonderful golf courses in the region.

 

A Marquee will be erected on the 10th fairway, where Prize Giving will be held each evening.

There will be two sit down dinners served on the Sunday and Friday and the rest will be buffet dinners.

Entertainment is arranged and should keep you coming back for more.

As promised there will be some surprises thrown in to make this a unique Nationals.

There will be no shortage of service and product. Our aim is to get you there and keep you there!

The Cowboy bar will offer good food, entertainment and laughter. A place not to be missed where the camaraderie of Nationals is experienced and fond memories made, new jokes and stories are told and good friendships cemented.

 

A practice round has been reserved at the Knysna golf course for Saturday 5th March.

Please make your own bookings with Simon Terblanche, 044 384 1150.

Early bookings will avoid disappointment.

The numbers draw has been done and sent to your Club Coordinator. He will, if he hasn`t already, send this out to you in order to fill in you names into the time slots you wish to play. Here you can organise yourselves as to which days and which mates you wish to play with.

 

Your Club Coordinator will supply us with your Nomads handicap by the end of February. This will be the average handicap of the last six months including the February game. Please remember to check your official Club handicap before you travel, as this will be required at registration.

Your Club and Nomads handicap will be double checked by our Score Controller before registration in order to sort out any discrepancies before your first round of golf.

 

We cannot wait and are all looking forward to welcoming you to the beauty of Knysna for the 51st Nomads National Tournament, The Loerie Nationals.

 

Yours in Nomads

Fellow Nomads,

51st Nomads National Tournament to be played at the Knysna Golf Club from the 6th to the 11th March 2016.

 

Knysna is nestled around a spectacular lagoon with amazing scenes, plenty restaurants and off course home of the Knysna oysters. No wonder it is the second most popular tourist destination in South Africa.

 

Only 5 months to go before we raise the flags at Knysna Golf Club on Saturday,

5th March 2016. Marking the start of yet another Nationals week where old friendships are rekindled and new one`s made. This marathon event will as per usual hold dear memories for a long time after the flags are lowered on Friday 11th March.

 

The Organizing Committee is hard at work to ensure that you have a unique experience at the Loerie Nationals. There will be a special theme to the Tournament with a couple of nice surprises thrown in, all and all very good value for money.

 

Knysna is an easy walking course and should pose no problem to most of our seasoned Nomads, however, there will be 50 golf carts available for the gentlemen more on in their years and for those who plan to make this event a sprint.

There will also be a 100 caddies available.
