A crisp, clear winter’s morning greeted Easterns Nomads for their monthly game on the 9th of June at State Mines CC. In true Eastern’s spirit, a good tot of Glenbrynth with a shot of milk, warmed everyone up before the round! The weather gods were on our side once again and everyone soon forgot we were almost in the middle of winter!
Thanks to our starters for the day – Stephen, Nickey and Frans – for a great job in setting the field off on time. A good pace of play was maintained for the morning with the field turning timeously! The slick greens and well maintained fairways made for a most enjoyable round of golf. Thank you to SCC Members and staff for the use of your course!
A special mention to my playing partners, Peter Retief, Jan Delport and Werner Marais for their company and patience with my shank and shot standard of golf at the moment!
As always, no game would be complete without the generosity of our Sponsors. A double word of thanks to Allen Purchase for being sponsor of the day in his personal capacity, as well as fines master! Much appreciated!!
To our special table ladies this month, Terry and Lindsay - Thank you for all that you do for Easterns in helping to make our monthly games run smoothly! Our ever efficient prize master, Derick Lindsay, once again managed to excel with his prize selection! Well done Derick! Congratulations to all who received tie awards and game badges – especially Albert Otto (35 year tie award)!
Finally, thank you to those who have supported Hector with the fund raising efforts he has presented thus far ( Barnyard and Agony Draw) ! Funds raised will go to really worthy causes!
