Welcome to the Nomads Golf Club Perth
The Nomads Golf Club of Australia was inaugurated in December 2003 at the AGM, and have prepared a constitution based on the South African and New Zealand Nomad formula. The club is run on the tried and tested basis of the SA clubs with a couple of slight differences. The main difference at this stage is not wearing jackets, ties and Nomads insignia after the game at prize giving. However any Nomad from an Australian club participating in an overseas event is required to wear the formal dress to suit the occassion.
The committee of each club comprises the following: Captain, Vice-Captain, Junior Vice Captain, Treasurer, Secretary, Handicapper, Venue Co-ordinator, PRO Co-ordinator, Webmaster and a Past Captain. The committee meets once a month to run, administer and grow the club.
The Vice-captain is responsible for nominating the charity we wish to give monies to. This is done with the sanction of the members and committee and the monies are donated on Gold Cup day, which is the December game.
The AGM is also held on this day with the election of the new Junior Vice-Captain. The out going Vice-captain succeeds the Captain who in turn takes up the Past Captain’s role on the committee to maintain continuity for a one-year period.
"No man is an island entire of itself;
Each man is a piece of the continent, a part of the maine;
Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind;
Therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee."
(Taken from the meditations of John Donne)
1. Enjoy the camaraderie of like minded people through the medium of golf;
2. Through the enjoyment of golf, raise funds for those less fortunate than ourselves;
3. To raise funds to foster the growth of junior golf.
