What you'll do

I will host you and up to two other guests for nine holes of golf at Omanu Golf Club here in Mount Maunganui, in the Bay of Plenty. Have a look at the website: https://www.omanugolf.co.nz/

Its a high quality course that is suitable for all standards of player.
We will play nine holes, which takes around one and a half hours and then have a drink in the club house, which has stunning views over the course and beyond. During the round and the drink afterwards, I will be happy to share some of my Olympic experiences as an athlete, an executive and a commentator.

If you do not have your own clubs you can hire a set for NZ$15 and a trundler/trolley for NZ$5.50. If you would like a cart you can hire one for NZ$20.
Other things to note
If you do not have your own clubs you can hire a set at the pro shop for just NZ$15 and I will supply golf balls and tees. You do not need actual golf shoes but you will have to have trainers or other suitable shoes.

So come and play one of the best courses in the Bay of plenty with me.
