About Western Province Nomads

The Beginning

With Nomads having become firmly entrenched in the Transvaal in 1960 and the Natal Club having got through its fits and starts to becoming successfully established in 1964, Nomads founder Mike Florance was able to give some consideration to sowing the seeds for the possible formation of a club in the Western Province. There he found fertile ground in larger-than-life-golf-fanatic, Louis Immerman, he with the handlebar moustache and rabbit teeth who had been pestering him to do just that for a year or two. As a result Louis was given the go-ahead to get a club launched in 1965, based in Cape Town.

Official club colours, adopted for golfing attire in 1970, were a Royal Blue golf shirt together with Sky Blue trousers. This Royal Blue shirt gradually morphed to Navy Blue and then in about 1994 the uniform was changed to a white golf shirt because it was felt that the navy blue shirt was too hot for the Cape summers. Later it was felt that the light blue trousers became grubby too quickly and so in 2001 they gave way to navy blue trousers, resulting in very nearly the same uniform as that of Natal Nomads and gradually that of other clubs. It seems that this uniform could possibly be reconsidered once again at some future time … hopefully back to its unique original.
