Daniel Gourley, Matthew Tonkin and Roger Hawke.
These guys really love their golf and to prove it they came to the Hole in One with their medals won in Palmerston North at the Special Olympics. Daniel - Bronze 9 holes. Matthew - Silver 9 holes and Roger a Silver medal for Skills.
Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you again.
We stopped business for half an hour as one of the longest Santa parades in Taupo\'s history files past the Hole in One.
From old jeeps, child care, dancers prancers and of course the longest lolly scramble ever.
Standing on the site of the Hole in One we relaxed while being entertained by NZ\'s famous Warbirds.
These WW II spitfires flew in perfect formations for about 15 minutes over the Town Centre, Lake and Hole in One.
Congratulations Mark. Winner 691
The ball flew true. Landed in the sand bounced forward and hit the flag and dropped down into the blue hole.
Mark won a fishing charter on with White Strike Fishings Dan Basse. Dan tells me he has been catching a lot of fish in the last month. The smelt have returned in better numbers and the trout are responding by putting on good condition.
Dave Spittal from Scotland is a recent migrant to NZ and living in Auckland. He turned up with the whole family and two sets of friends from Scotland.
From the first shot I said we had better watch this guy closely. He hit the pontoon and just missed with his 3rd shot and 2 shots later aced the White flag in front of the crowd.
Woops of delight and big kisses from his wife and kids greeted the occasion.
Dave was ecstatic to win a rafting trip for two on the Rangitaiki River with Kiwi River Safaris.
Well done Dave.
