On Saturday 10 October 2020, the last tournament of 2020 by the Dutch Hickory Society took place at Golfclub Landgoed Bleijenbeek.
Despite the corona-virus around the Netherlands and Germany we still had several international competitors. Some of whom we had met the opening night before at a very nice dinner.
On Saturday morning we had a very friendly reception by the Dutch Golf Museum with a nice drinking bottle sponsored by Audi.
It started as a beautiful day, but after several holes we really got wet.
Despite the weather we proceeded playing and trying to keep our clubs as dry as possible.
I have had the pleasure to play with pro Iain Forrester and Klaus Sasse from Germany.
The first nine holes I was not very pleased with my game, which proves that playing hickory remains difficult especially when you think you could make a very nice score. The following nine holes on the par 3-4 course I proved to be a little more in control.
Overall, my score seemed to be acceptable, but I did not have a clue what scores the other women in the contest did make.
Back in the clubhouse we got warmed up and after some drinks and snacks the pre-dinner results of the Tournament were to be announced.
The Gross winner Gents was Brian Gee and to my big surprise I was the Gross winner Ladies.
I had a little déjà-vu since in 2018 Brian Gee was also the winner as well as myself.
I would like to thank the very good organization by Ferd and Maria Vrijmoed as well as James and Angelica Fennell.
