NZs finest 12th hole

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!
