“They call it golf because all the other four letter words were taken.” – Ray Floyd

Game report

At long last, the weather has allowed us to kick off the year with the last 3 games being called off because of the weather.

Test Valley GC 7th April

The course, considering the amount of rain, was in superb condition, unfortunately no buggies were allowed, so a few of our regulars couldn’t attend. Well, done to Maria and the team at Test Valley for making us feel very welcome.

We had 55 golfers, with an average handicap of 13 and average score of 28.6 points.

Thanks to everyone who helped on the day and our sponsors. Without them, it would not be possible to deliver the day as smoothly as we do.

A special thanks to all the Visitors who joined us, from feedback, I know they enjoyed your Nomadic UK experience.

We inducted 4 new members, Archie Greengrass, Tim Wehrie, Luke Townsend and Kabo Sebogiso – welcome to Nomads.

It was an honour to ask Patrick Cornish, a visiting Zimbabwean Nomad with a very impressive CV, to present our longest serving Nomad – Dave Sly, with his 30-year tie. A fantastic achievement, well done Dave and Patrick.

Congrats to all our winners especially to James Bryers (Winner Div 1. 35 points), Dave Sly (Winner Div 2. 36 points) and Leighton for winning the crying towel with 19 points.

Finally, as this was the first time we had been together since Steven O’Sullivan had passed away, we had a small tribute to Steven. To Steven’s family, our thoughts are with you and we will always be there for you.

Witney Lakes GC 14th April

Our second game was the inaugural Nomads Gloucestershire show the flag game held at Witney Lakes on the 14 April.

The course was in superb condition, greens were fast and true. I don’t think we did the course justice with the scores that were posted.

Well, done to Steve Cochrane, Basil Burger, John Browning and the team for an excellent first game. It was exceptionally well organised and went without a hitch. I have no doubt that Nomads Gloucestershire will grow from strength to strength under their leadership.

We had 24 golfers, with an average handicap of 15 and average score of 28.1 points.

Thanks to all the Visitors who joined us, and the sponsors for their support. The sponsors generosity certainly makes our Prize table look fantastic.

Congrats to all our winners especially to Leighton – Zero to hero (Winner Div 1. 32 points), Gary Biffen (Winner Div 2. 36 points) and Steve Cochrane (23 points) for winning his first ever crying towel in his 19 years as a Nomad, first to wear the pink piggy ears and as his first outing as the Nomads Gloucestershire Captain.

See you all at The Springs GC on the 27th April.
