Mat-AltarNomads Golf was first established in South Africa 1960. As its members were drawn from various clubs and played their regular competitions on a variety of different courses, the Nomads name seemed particularly appropriate.

Nomads Golf Flourished in South Africa and a club was established in Zimbabwe. There are now three clubs on Zimbabwe which operate under the umbrella of the controlling Zimbabwe body.

Nomads Golf in Zimbabwe holds its National Tournament annually and has field of up to 240 players.

The Nomads Movement has also spread to Botswana, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and Swaziland. Today there are close to 3000 Nomads spread around our clubs, all committed to our ideals of benefiting the game of golf and, in the process, raising substantial funding for causes that lend support for those less fortunate than ourselves.

 GAME ONE AND GOLD CUP – The Brooke Golf Club

 Nomadic greetings to all Fellow Nomads,

Hope I find you and your families well and safe. We had our first game for 2022 and Gold Cup at The Brooke Golf Club. Unfortunately we could not have the full Gold Cup with all the competitions that we normally hold during the year, due to the current pandemic but managed to have a short one so that we can change Office Bearers. Hopefully next year we can play more games and have Nomads back on track and do what we do best ‘’Through Golf The Rememberance of Others’’.

Our game at The Brooke Golf Club was a great day with 80 players, 2 prospective’s, 4 guests and 0 no shows. Well done and thank you all for your support. We were privileged to have the following ladies join us for prize giving; Bev Holmes, Shirley Jonker, Natasha Jonker and Michelle McDonnell.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the General Manager of The Brooke, Simon Herring and his team for all their hard work they have put into this Club. The Course was in fantastic condition.

To Past Captain Nyasha, a very big thank you for your time and dedication to Nomads. It has been a very difficult two years but you steered the Ship well. All the best and I hope I can fill your shoes.



The Brooke game was kindly sponsored by John and Alison Clark. Thank you to John and Alison for the sponsorship and for all that you do for Nomads. I would like to thank Ivan Peters of Peter Signs for all the branding he has done at the Nomads house at no charge. Your kind sponsorship really goes a long way.

We are also very grateful for our Platinum Sponsors.




Thank you

Nomads Mashonaland Charity day 2020/2021

On behalf of the Charity day Committee, I would like to thank all Sponsors and all who have donated to last year and this year’s Charity day. We only had the opportunity to raise funds for the first 2 months of last year and a few games for raffles. Having said that we did manage to raise a good amount of funds and still managed to support a few Charities. Unfortunately due the pandemic we were unable to have a golf day.

ZARDA: Last year as well and this year we held a lunch at the Nomads house for the Carers. We also donated a laptop and a heavy duty laser printer.

RUGARE: An Orphan Care and Transformation Centre. We donated building material towards a project.

WINGATE PARK GOLF CLUB: Last year we had paid upfront to book the course for our golf day but because of the pandemic we were unable to hold the actual golf day. The Charity day committee decided to donate the booking fee.

MUMMIES ANGELS ZIMBABWE: Mummies Angels is an Organisation that helps Mothers and Babies in need by distributing donations. We have donated clothes for babies and many other items for both Mothers and babies including items like nappies, creams, formula etc.



  1. CHRISTOPHERS: This is a Community based rehabilitation project based in Hatcliffe. They offer therapeutic services to children with disabilities. We donated a 20ft container that they required for storage.

Captain 2022


“No man is an Island entire of itself,

Every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the Main,

Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind,

And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee.”

From the meditations of John Donne (1573)
