Oscar Wilde (or was it Mark Twain – both are well-known authors and all-round smartarses) once described golf as “a good walk spoiled”. Maybe that’s why so many younger people like to use a cart when they play a round. Most non-golfers think it’s a game for the sedentary, just a gentle stroll with very few calories being burnt. That’s until they play the game and find golf is actually a great way to burn up a few excess calories/kilojoules/whatever the latest weight-loss measurement is.
So why this craze for carts? Probably because the casual golfer sees it as an “occasion” that riding in a cart is all very much part of. In reality, it doesn’t make a hoot of difference to your game (although the ancient and purist golfer will scoff at those who don’t toss their bag over their shoulder and hoof it down the fairway). Some days you’ll score well when using a cart, some days you won’t. Same when you walk the course. Either way you have a good time with your mates … and the beer tastes good any which way.
The whole concept behind our Unbeatable Golf packages is to deliver you golf the way you want to play it. And at a level you’re happy to pay. Each package delivers a great greenfee deal … and adds extra value that makes this a very special outing. And here’s something that few other courses can offer you – brilliant playing conditions any day of the year. Our sand base means no slopping around in mud, so you can turn up in your white chinos and go home looking like you just stepped out of the pages of “Clean Living” magazine!
And if you want to walk or step out in a cart, that’s your call. We run a modern fleet of Yamaha carts – but you will need to book one before you turn up to play. We also, here at Mangawhai, have hire clubs and trundlers, plus a fully-stocked Golf Shop, a Lounge Bar with views across the course, and cafe food that, like our course, will prove more than satisfying.
Unbeatable Golf is … simply unbeatable! Check out our deals, then come and experience what is so special about Managawhai!
