Finally we emerged from the ‘Covid 19’ lockdown to resume the 2020 season at New Zealand with a match against the CAGS. A delightful venue for our first careful steps back to ‘normality’.
New Zealand had set up the clubhouse in such a way that allowed for social distancing whilst still using the bar and catering facilities. We were able to have a four course lunch, excellent as usual, whilst enjoying the well manicured golf course.
The weather was kind, with clear skies and a gentle breeze to help us on our way.
The Hazards did their normal and started badly coming into lunch trailing by 4 points to 1 but a stern talking to by the match manager, Hugh Smith, saw a wonderful recovery to enable a halved match.
The Chartered Accountants, lead by Hazard – John Gill, were wonderful company and stiff opposition. We look forward to seeing them again in 2021.
