We covered the Diners Club Golf Day at Zimbali Country Club last year so we knew that it was going to be a good day. What we all didn’t expect was the ridiculously good weather. KZN was showing off and for all those visitors from all over South Africa, and as far afield as Namibia, they must have thought we live in paradise. Guess what, we do. I thought that the day was more of a fun day and an excuse to play some golf until I found out that it is actually a regional qualifying event and also that the top two points scorers won trips to the finals in Mauritius. Game on. The Zimbali Country Club is a beautiful course from a spectators view point and I enjoyed whizzing around it in my golf cart taking in the amazing scenery. It was a different story for the players as it is a tough golf course and I heard a lot of players saying what a terrible game they had had because when you played a bad shot on this course you got severely punished. There were obviously the opposite who were loving every moment and playing exceptionally well and in the running for those two top spots. My favourite moments were at the last hole where the groups of players shared hand shakes, hugs, high fives and thanks for sharing in a memorable day together. The day ended with a delicious dinner and prize giving with two players getting their tickets to the finals in Mauritius. Thank you for the exceptional day Zimbali Country Club.
