The trip to Ironman this weekend just been was the fourth time I’ve driven SH1 from Wellington to Taupo in as many months.
It’s an okay drive – lots of varied scenery to keep things interesting – but doing it that regularly is perhaps stretching my enthusiasm levels a bit.
Despite this, there is always one thing to make me smile, just north of Taihape:
NZs finest 12th hole? Really? It seems like an unverifiable claim to fame. And, surely if it were true they’d be able to charge more than $15 for the privilege?
One day I’ll stop and check out this 12th hole and see what all the fuss is about!
