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.

CAPTAIN’S NEWSLETTER

Warren Hills Game 10 on 29th September, 2019.

Dear Fellow Nomads,

Greetings to all Nomads and their families. Those of you who played at Warren Hills, the golf course was in the best condition we have seen it in for some years.

We had a field of 96 players with 2 prospectives and 2 no-shows. Please note that any No Show is liable to pay an amount equivalent to the playing fees due on the day that they were a no show and that they will not be allowed to play further Nomads games until that amount is settled.

The Warren Hills game was kindly sponsored by Freight World, represented by our own members Ben Mukandi and Felix Nyaruwanga, who were presented with a Nomads Certificate of Appreciation.

  

 

Monthly Sponsors

 We are also very grateful to our platinum sponsors Glenbrynth, Golden Pilsener, and Nyaradzo Life Assurance Company.

   

 

Warren Hills Golf Club.

 

Many thanks go to the Club General Manager of Warren Hills Golf club, Tafara Kamuruko and his team for all the hard work they put into the club and in particular the course.

I had the pleasure of playing with Brigadier General Ernest Shamu and unfortunateltely, with our standard of play, we had to clear the alter and the General was not available to clear the alter with us.

The Vice Chairman of warren Hills Golf Club, Julius Nenzou, stepped into the General’s shoes at Prize Giving and expressed gratitude to Mashonaland Nomads for supporting his club.

The Vice Chairman did not help in clearing the alter on behalf of his boss.

Thank Yous.

Our Nomads ladies Alison and Alana, being short-staffed, you coped admirably. We can never say thank you enough for your contribution to our monthly meetings. You really make it happen for us, the registration, compilation of results, raffles etc.

The ladies’ dedication to Nomads, particularly for no remuneration, is amazing and we are truly blessed to have these ladies looking after us at every monthly game.

To our starters, waking up early morning to see us tee-off on time. Honorary Life Member Greg Pozzo and Rod Bennet, you did it so well gentlemen and we are forever grateful for your contribution to our great Club.

Thanks also go to Honorary Member, Gordon Mackenzie for helping at the registration desk.

ON THE SICK LIST.

It was such a pleasure to see Ben Ajidah who is now fully recovered. Ben was given a chance to say a few words to his fellow Nomads. We are now not only hoping, but confident that he will come back to golf very soon.

Warren Stead, who had suffered a broken ankle on 1st January whilst in the U.K. is now fully recovered and was able to play golf with us at Warren Hills.

Should anyone of you know a member of Nomads who is sick, please kindly inform the Captain or any of the Committee members.

FINES MASTER

 Mike Finnigan gave yet another very good fines session.

Mike, we very much appreciate your effort and support to our great Club.

John Clark, good luck with your weights.

Gentlemen we are always

looking for a new face to do a fines session at one of our games, so please if you feel you can extract some money from our fellow Nomads and still leave them with a smile on their face, which isn’t a difficult job, then please speak to our Public Relations Officer, Shane Zangel.

“No Man is an Island entire of itself

Every man if 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.”
