Golf Heaven Tips (1)

Golfing trips

I'd heard about the great golf courses in and around Christchurch and was given the number of a company who would provide the transport, equipment and a discount on the green fees. A very polite guy collected my wife and I from our city central hotel in a modern and spacious people mover and took us to the course that suited us, in this case it was Templeton. We had a great days golf at a very reasonable cost and on our next visit will use this company for a round at Clearwater. The equipment was first class and I was astounded that everything ran so smoothly, I don't think we were held up on the course at any stage!

Equipment Although the skyline was overcast we still got rather burnt so sun screen is a must. We were also worried that our dress was "under par"! This wasn't the case though, golfing shoes were provided and the course dress code is far more relaxed than overseas courses (within reason)
