GC Modified ISO Singles at Hutt Road, 10th and 11th June
The Golf Croquet committee decided the best way to get back to croquet after isolation was to have an event that allowed lots of people to play, so we came up with Modified ISO Singles Well I don’t know if it was the catchy name, the lure of chocolate as a prize or the desperation for people to catch up with others or merely the enjoyment of the game.
Whatever it was, it was successful!
