The Taranaki region is spoilt for choice of places to play golf. There are 20 courses, most are under $30, and have views of the mountain or sea, or both.
We’ve started playing at Westown as it’s one of the closest courses to the House. We have a business team entered, and enjoy zipping up on a random free weekend day or summer afternoon.
There is a nice mix of flat wide open fairways, with hilly twisty examples. On one hole, you may run into some rogue chickens and there is a par 3 where I feel like I can hit it into the back of a hill and might some day pop it into the hole.
Life here in Taranaki definitely feels like there are more hours in the day – ones to pursue activities like golf that enrich our lives, give us time to be outside in the fresh air and enjoy life.
Time to perfect getting a little white ball into a small hole is just one example.
