Thursday 30 September at Diss
We had a worrying run-up to this match which had already been postponed from May (I wonder why!!!). For a time it was touch and go as to whether the match would go ahead as some people were having difficulty sourcing petrol due to the shortage. Well done to all those who queued up for supplies on both teams so that the match could go ahead!
It was a blustery, showery day making conditions tricky; the wind often blowing across the fairway which didn’t help when trying to hit tricky greens. There were some close matches, 2 going to the 18th, and excellent golf on both sides. Long putts and chips were holed, unfortunately for us from the Norfolk team!
Thanks must go to Diss for being excellent hosts, the course played well and the greens were running smoothly. Our food afterwards was plentiful and tasty.
