It may also be a good idea to share the cost of the green fees equally amongst the four players. Most of the clubs at which we play our monthly games, have agreed to charge Nomads playing their Gary Player Knockout or Plate events members’ rates. Please confirm this when making your booking at the various clubs. The arbitrator this year is Greg Graham, his contact number is: 083 647 5715 Good Luck!
