Golf at Brocket Hall

Last Monday, one of our teachers, Mike Humphreys-Davies, played in the annual golf tournament of the Japan Society, which helps promote contacts and exchanges between Japan and the UK.

This year, the competition was played at Brocket Hall, one of the most beautiful of estates in this part of England. It is particularly famous from the time that the former owner, Lord Brocket, buried several Ferraris on the estate and claimed they had been stolen and asked for insurance of £3 million pounds. Unfortunately for him, his ex-wife told the police and he went to prison for five years. The estate is now leased to a German consortium as a conference centre, golf course and Michelin Star restaurant, Auberge du Lac.
Mike played with Tadaharu Iizkua, a senior executive and Shunsuke Asakawa, a younger guy on secondment here with KPMG.  The picture is of Tada and Mike with the Hall in the background. Tada came second in the competition.
The competition was won by Eiji Wakiwaka.
