puregolf2010 is a story about the Kiwi ethos. It was born out of a desire to challenge ourselves, and a challenge it certainly will be. But we're up for it.
In 2010 we will play a round of golf at a different course every day of the year, around the world. Along the way we hope to raise the profile of a fabulous youth program called The First Tee. It has proven to be very effective in teaching life skills to youngsters around the world, through the medium of golf.
Our journey started on 1 January 2010 at Kauri Cliffs and will finish on 31 December 2010 at Cape Kidnappers. A calendar year, no less. In between, we will travel through New Zealand, Australia, the United States, the UK, northern Europe and parts of Asia. Perhaps other countries too. Along the way we will play many of the world's best golf courses, meet a bunch of interesting people and generally experience life outside our comfort zone. The plan is also to raise a significant amount of money too.
puregolf2010, first and foremost, is an adventure. It embodies for us the truism that life is too short. Golf every day for a year...why not?
We hope you enjoy following us on our odyssey. And we would love you to join us - the more people we engage with, the richer and more interesting puregolf2010 will be.
