Once again the weather threatened us at Kloof Country Club but fortunately we only had a few spots of rain and judging by the scores everyone had a good day.
My thanks go to Roy Language, John van Eyk for once again doing the starting – the field was again on time and prize giving could take place at 6pm.
The average for the day was 29 points on a course rating of 70.
23 Nomads lost shots, 64 stayed the same and 46 got shots back.
Our final game of the year is at Durban Country Club, Beachwood Course, on Friday 3rd December 2010. Being Gold Cup Day I have asked the green keeper to set up the course real tough – this is especially for Blake Shepherd.
Nomads please bear in mind that at this game we play in many competitions and because there are so many trophies to be won the field is traditionally slow. We have a very long prize giving to get through so please report to the starters at least 10 minutes before your appointed tee off time. The Gary Player and Gary Player Plate finals are also played on this day so please spare a thought for the guys at the back of the field.
Also, a gentle reminder to the Captains of the last 4 ball off the 1st and 10th tee to bring in the closest to the pin markers – this helps speed up the completion of the prize sheet for the day. Once again at Kloof we had to rush around looking for a nearest the pin marker.
This is my last report as JVC for 2010 and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you as your Vice Captain in 2011.
My sincere thanks to all my fellow Nomads who supported me in 2010 and especially to those “Unsung Heroes” who work behind the scenes, to make our day what it is.
See you there.
Golf is ninety percent mental and ten percent mental.
