THE 2020 league season got going last Sunday with some interesting results.

Zululand beat Maritzburg Golf Club 9-3 at Richards Bay. 

This might qualify as an upset as Zululand had wondered about their premier league credentials after some big losses last year.

Zululand took the foursomes 4-0 and consolidated in the afternoon.

In the battle of the youngsters at number one, Jarred Good edged out Nathan Trodd 2/1.

Kloof CC beat Mout Edgecombe CC 6,5-5,5 at Mount Edgecombe.

This was about as good as the defending champions could have hoped for, especially against a team with some of its big name players back in the line-up.

Stewart Theunissen's men took the foursomes 3-1 and then held on for dear life in the singles.

Kloof's top two won the day for the visitors, with Ryan Welsh seeing off Cade Cryer 3/1.

He left the stage open for Dylan Underwood to beat Derek Scullard 2-up and seal a superb win.

In Pietermaritzburg, Durban Country Club found things a whole lot more difficult than possibly anticipated against newly promoted Victoria CC.

They scraped a win by the narrowest of margins, 6,5-5,5

It needed some special shots to get it done, like playing 'non captain' Keith Forde's holing a bunker shot on the 18th for eagle in his singles match against Chris Cordier.

James Buzzard has handed over the captaincy to Murray Gilson, but he couldn't play so 'Fordie' filled in.

Forde was impressed with the talent displayed by the newcomers 

Royal Durban beat Cotswold Downs 7,5-4,5 at Cotswold. 

This probably wasn't the result too many were expecting, especially at Cotswold.

But Royal has some talented youngsters and plenty seriously seasoned campaigners in their team and Cotswold have lost a few key players.
