Nomads Shaka Langa and Bobby Naidoo have once again pulled off a hugely successful golf day to raise funds and awareness with our local mayor Cynthia Maqwebu in the continuation of the Trust established to assist young aspiring golfers.The approach to Nomads for assistance was felt indeed important because as Mayor she felt that the game of golf was an excellent medium to reach out to youngsters, to assist them in reaching potential, based on the discipline, etiquette & consciousness of the rules that govern the game.Her initial seed funding of R250k of her own money has been bolstered with various generous donation and a major fundraiser to “top up the fund”.
The ongoing plan is to arrange Golf Days, to allow the youngsters to improve their skills and to reward them with small prizes as they develop their love and respect for the game. One former PGA instructor, Colin Iddon of Margate Country Club, has worked tirelessly and is achieving great results in developing these youngsters to be better players.Accordingly Shaka and Bobby have recently organized, on the 25th of November 2016, another really good Golf Day and the Trust continues to provide the platform for the Furtherance of Golf
Pleasing was the great representation at the event where no less that 12 Nomads attended in their No 1 outfits and enjoyed a very good game and successful evening. 144 Nomads branded Taylormade golf balls were handed to players as a reminder as to what Nomads was all about. Good mileage for the day’s events was had and deemed a great success for the Furtherance of Golf.

Inaugural KZN South Coast Schools Golf Tournament
Friday the 21st of October 2016, saw the Inaugural KZN South Coast Schools Golf Tournament, take place at Port Shepstone Country Club.
Nomads were approached for assistance with this tournament due to our very proud National Commitment to the Furtherance of Golf.
PGA Apprentice, Willem Lindeque and Golf Teachers from the various South Coast High schools, organised the “nitty gritty” of an exceptional day for the youngsters to compete and enjoy the wonderful game.
Being a Nomads sponsored day, our Prize Giving Nomads Altar was prominently displayed and Sub Coordinator for the Furtherance of Golf at Southern Natal Nomads. Peter Brauteseth, was on hand to dish out the prizes for the various divisions.
Special mention was made of the “Dad’s and Teachers” who supported the youngsters on the day and a sketched background, of what Nomads does in the community, was explained, as was the offer for any of these kind gentlemen, to join our ranks.
It was indeed a proud moment for Nomads when the organising teacher, Frans Van Rensberg of Port Shepstone High, informed the youngsters that he expected them all to follow the example set by Nomads, in that they should next year, shower and dress up in the No 1’s, for prize giving!
He went on to say that this activity displayed the respect for the game, the rules and the etiquette that is required of all true lovers of the noble game of Golf!
In conclusion it must be noted that a special recognition was afforded to the resident professional Golfer and Nomad, Jesse Verster, who had worked tirelessly with his team to present a beautifully manicured course at Port Shepstone.
Not only was the Port Shepstone Country Club proud of Jesse, we as Nomads salute him too as a fellow Nomad, for all that he does in the Furtherance of Golf.
Hibiscus Coast Mayors Golf Trust
In recent months Nomads Shaka Langa and Bobby Naidoo have lent their hand to assist the local mayor Cynthia Maqwebu in establishing a trust for young aspiring golfers.
She approached these two gentlemen, as Nomads, as she felt that the game of golf was an excellent medium to reach out to youngsters, to assist them in reaching potential, based on the discipline, etiquette & consciousness of the rules that govern the game.
As with all trusts and foundations they need money & fortunately the Mayor, a former successful business woman, established & started the trust with R250 thousand of her own money.
The plan is to arrange Golf Days, to allow the youngsters to improve their skills and to reward them with small prizes as they develop their love and respect for the game.
Accordingly Shaka and Bobby have organised one Golf Day and the Trust has had a major fundraiser recently, where some R500 000 was pledged to the Trust.
We are pleased to announce that there was great representation at the event where Nomads attended in their No 1 outfits and enjoyed a very good and successful evening.
It appears that the Trust has started off well with the guidance of our two Nomads, Shaka & Bobby, who have provided an excellent foundation to ensure that the tournaments and events are organised and conducted in the true Nomadic tradition of etiquette and decorum.
