We have had another good day playing at Akarana golf club. The members and management welcomed us to their course and kindly raised $230 for The First Tee NZ. Pretty awesome stuff from the "most social golf club in Auckland".
Akarana is a fine course. We have heard it is very boggy in the winter, but today it played as a very solid course. Had a few great par threes with water hazards around the greens. And a number of challenging par fours, particularly the stretch 13 thru 15. The course was in good nick so congrats goes out to the greenstaff.
Fortunate enough to play with Geoff Burns and Peter Williams today from the First Tee NZ board. Apologies to Geoff for losing the match, and having him suffer the consequence of chowing down on a couple of weetbix.
Check out the short video below: a final 'farewell' NZ video will follow tomorrow so stay tuned!
