The Hole in One had a sponsors and locals day where all balls were half price - all day.
We got More FM down on the site and had a huge hotdog stand and cold drinks for free.
Hoping to get a hole in one on the day we were rewarded when John had a great shot at around 2.30pm.
Well done John. An almost disputed hole in one. Two guys were hitting the pontoon on a regular basis STANDING SIDE BY SIDE. When the other one tried claiming the prize and suggesting they split the $10000 we knew he was lying! The ball was in the white hole not the red!!!
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.
