There’s always somone who’ll tell you Golf is a game for “rich b******s”. And it can be, if you want to indulge yourself in resort-type courses. But dollar for dollar, minute by minute, Golf fronts up as really great value, especially here in NZ.
It’s been said that God only thought about creating golf at the very last minute, and that’s why NZ seems just tossed into the Pacific as an after-thought – but really as the best golfing landscape in the world. Here we have golf courses in every town and our egalitarian society makes access easy for all.
An average round takes about 4 hours, or 240 minutes. An average greenfee might be about $30. That’s works out to something like $1 for every 8 minutes. And it’s times spent on groomed fairways, with your mates, getting fresh air and exercise.
Compare that to the $100 or more it costs you to go to, say, a rugby test. You sit in a restricted area, eat bad food and watch other people get some exercise.
OK, there are the ancillary costs – buying or hiring clubs, losing sidebets with your mates, a couple of bevvies afterwards. But overall, a day’s golf delivers you great value and a lot of physical and mental benefits.
You don’t have to join a club – although there a lot of benefits if you choose to. And with our “Unbeatable” golf packages, we deliver you exceptional value at one of NZ’s very best courses. Give it a go!
