Derby HEC 2019 – 17 May 2019 at Golf de Morfontaine - results

After winning back the trophy from HEC in 2018 the pressure was on Insead to retain it. In addition, this was to take place in the magnificent surroundings of the Golf de Morfontaine.

The attraction of being able to play at Morfontaine encouraged a strong turnout on both sides but with Insead fielding a globally younger team with players arriving from Belgium, UK, Sweden and Germany we were considered to be the favourites.

Mastering the very fast greens proved to be challenging for everyone but the general condition and layout of the course lived up to its reputation with our opposition providing very pleasant company. Everyone came back to the clubhouse with smiles on their faces, even those who had struggled with the course.

As the results came in, we hoped that we would do as well as in 2018 (8 vs 4). We weren’t disappointed winning 9,5 to 5,5. It’s going to be tough to do as well in 2020.

Many thanks to a great team.
