2019 B’n’D – NORFIK!

AAAA Norfik warm ups.jpg

Ian picking his magic tee (foreground) while three other favourites do interpretive dance. We love a bit of interpretive dance on the Gentlepersons’ World Tour!

As Defending Champ, Ian had the honour of choosing the course this year, and the timing. He duly sent us to New Norfik in late June. It would be cold. Who would bring the HOT GOLF to burn off the Derwent Valley winter chill?

A massive field of 8 Gents, including Dr Gaz, Matt, Ian and (briefly) Stu – as well as the top 4 in the World – assembled to take on the 2017 Matchplay Masters, presented by the Aurora Curse.
