It contains all amendments up to and including those made at the 120th National Management Meeting held in November 2015) THE CLUB SYMBOL Our Club badge, a bell crossed by a golf club, is symbolic of the raison d'être of the 'NOMADS' through golf, the remembrance of others. It is printed in the renowned extract from the Meditations of John Donne (1573-1631): 'No man is an island entire of itself; Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind. And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee.' RULES OF PLAY 'A Club is an Association of Good Fellows meeting together for a certain purpose.' Samuel Johnson 1. Every round of golf shall be based on Medal-Stableford play (i.e. the round is played 'flat against the course' and the player's handicap is added in full afterwards to make up the player's SCORE - Definition). 2. The Standard NOMADS score for an individual round shall be taken as 30 points (see handicapping - Rule 10). 3. The score of all partnerships, combinations, etc., shall be calculated by summing the individual scores of the participating players.
