Honeymoon sensation

Megan arrived in Taupo from the USA on her honeymoon with few expectations ...that is until she stood on the tee at the Hole in One. Straight off to the Huka Jet and back to us again in the afternoon so hubby could prove he could do it as well.  

 

Congratulations and may you have a long and fruitful marriage.

Secondary School Yacht racing competitions

Over the past week we have been treated to some intense match racing on the course which was right in front of the Hole in One.

 

Each class had a different coloured set of sails which made it easier to follow - especially when 3 races on 3 different courses were racing at the same time.

 

This photo was taken facing West towards Kinloch.

Stop press: Mike Keehan

Two holes in one in 10 days. Holes in One number 715 and 718. Mike hit the Blue flag flag today and secure his second Hole in One.

 

Mike works on the site and has had many attempts at hitting the jackpot. Being a scratch golfer means he is better than most and he finally showed us what a good golfer he is.

 

I was snorkelling for the balls and on my way in when Mike yelled at me to clear the pontoon and the blue flag.

 

On retrieving the ball it was sitting smack in the middle of the Blue flag hole. A perfect shot.

 

When I got back Mike proudly told me it was his shot.

 

If you want some tips on your swing Mike offers these as part of our service.
