The Captain's Report



Our monthly game saw 120 Nomads, visiting Nomads and visitors turn out at De Zalze Golf Estate for the first time back in 6 years.  De Zalze is a real treat of a golf course, very scenic with some wonderful holes, which showcase the beauty of the Cape and Winelands.

I had the pleasure of having local Lee Lippiatt join me in my 4ball, on the occasion of receiving his 20 year tie. Lee also set the course up and it proved to be a great challenge on a superb day, with idyllic weather and course conditions. Joining us was the captain of De Zalze Clive Heward, who we are very grateful to for hosting the Nomads and getting us back onto the course after many years. It was a wonderful day and enjoyed by all.

Unfortunately we only got prize giving started at 19h00 that evening, mainly due to the fact that we only started teeing off at 12h00 (almost an hour later than normal), and because the guys were enjoying the beautiful weather and sunset at the Beer Barrel.

To all the staff of De Zalze, thank you for making the day very special for all the Nomads, and we look forward to being back next year.

Congratulations to all the winners on the day - Brett, Hugo and Jan all recording good scores on a challenging course set up. The visiting Bolanders struggled on their home turf with many of them in the prizes for the wrong reasons, but it is always great to have our neighbours joining us in our monthly games, and they are always welcome at WP.

Once again a special mention of Lee Lippiatt receiving his 20 year ties, as well as Ronan Copas on receiving his 25 year tie - a fantastic mile stone.

A big thank you to Lisa Pappin and Di Longmore on the smooth registration process and for getting the prize sheet out in time.

It was a wonderful surprise for many of the seasoned Nomads to see Brian Barends at the monthly game to see our players off. Brian was also very pleased to see so many of his old friends and meet so many of the younger guys. We miss his humour and character on the tee box.

March was a busy month for the WP Nomads, with 48 members competing at the 53rd Nationals Tournament “The Royal Nationals”. With such a big team, it was always going to be tough, but the guys were amazing and after 8 years, managed to Bring Back Bert - it was an amazing experience to captain the WP Nomads to victory, but all credit goes to the team who showcased the amazing spirit and friendship there is at Western Province. Congratulations to Gary Cahi for winning the Disa Bowl - the best WP player at the tournament.

So I have 1 more monthly game and my tenure as captain comes to an end. It has been an amazing year for me, and I look forward to handing over the reins to our VC Ed Jearey.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on the 10th April and we look forward to seeing as many of our members attend.

I look forward to seeing you all at Durbanville in April, and welcoming the new committee.

Have a blessed Easter and enjoy the holidays.

Captain Killie
