We have been working hard on getting the site operational and the new tee area has received a lot of favourable comments. There is a better feel, more room and its safer. All part of our goal in bringing the Hole in One up to International Standards.
Clean green even 100% pure...
The grass is now down and we are operational again.
We will post some pics of Shane from Stoneworks our Stonemason in the next few days. He is building nine Tauhara dacite pillars to encircle and protect the site.
Oi Oi Oi.
Members of the successful Australian Motocross team who won the 85cc class at the weekends World Junior Motocross Championships in Taupo.
These guys really had some fun here during their warm up for the event.
NZ\'s Mathew Dobbyn came a creditable 3rd in the mens 125cc section.
The Black Sticks were also in town playing their first International in Taupo.
The diggers came in yesterday to start ripping out the old site.
We are putting down a whole new tee area, new stone pillar fence, new corporate branding and flags on the light posts.
The work is estimated to take a week to complete.
The site redevelopment is part of bringing the site up to an International Standard for tourism in New Zealand.
Special mention to the Taupo District Council Reserves Planning Department who have been constructively helpful and assisted us in obtaining the approvals for the upgrade. They have recognised the importance of the Hole in One as an iconic tourism amenity for Taupo. Thank you.
A bus load of Korean school children who have been staying in Auckland and attending Browns Bay school to learn English took over the site.
These kids had a ball - literally and figuratively.
None of them had held a club. With Y.E.Yang winning the last major of the year, The PGA, we may be seeing the next tour winners of the future here.
