Golforama is a patent purchased in South Africa for the exclusive use of Nomads. It is the name of the scoring system devised by Nomads to facilitate "real time" scoring at professional and other events in Southern Africa sanctioned by the Sunshine tour, Zambezi tour and other golfing bodies.

The system relies on volunteers from Nomads giving up their time to assist at tournaments by operating electronic equipment supplied by the Sunshine tour organizers to record player's scores at each of the 18 holes. These electronically recorded scores are transmitted to a central point operated by Nomads and in turn disseminated to the main scoreboard as well as various scoreboards around the course for "live" spectator updates. In addition to the manpower in the control room, scoreboard operators and greenside recorders the club also provides roving reporters who follow the leading groups recording statistics and scores for television viewers assisting with the promotion of golf as a spectator sport. Although as Nomads we volunteer our time to ensure the success of Golforama, Nomads Zimbabwe is compensated for the service and the proceeds of the money is expended on projects for the furtherance of Golf.
