By now all keen Vets will know that there is quite a programme leading up to the Nationals in December.
For all those attending the Te Puke event, you will know that you will be most welcome at The Pines in Whangarei on Mon 27 and Tues 28 December and at Hikurangi on Thurs 30 Nov & Fri Dec 1st. Both these clubs are looking forward to your attendance, and will make you wish you had visited before.
After the Nationals at the Bay of Islands Golf Club, you should take the opportunity to explore a little more of the North.
Take the time before the school holidays get under way fully and go on up to Kaitaia. Play the golf course there, where motorhomers can stay at the course or at the campground just opposite. You should also try the lovely 9 hole course at Houhora, the most northerly course in NZ.
If you are staying near Kaitaia and do not feel like driving to Cape Reinga, why not take the tourist bus which travels up Ninety Mile Beach and returns down the road. Or reverses the journey if the tides don’t suit.
When you are heading south again, why not go via the West coast and see the beautiful Tane Mahuta in the kauri forest and try another couple of courses. There is the Kaikohe course, an attractive nine hole course at Okaihau and do visit Northern Wairoa Golf Club at Baileys Beach just north of Dargaville. There would be a warm welcome at any of these courses, particularly at Northern Wairoa on a Sunday.
Before braving the rat race which is the Auckland motorway, make time to visit the Matakohe Kauri Museum. Even non museum goers have been known to be impressed with its fascinating displays of old logging camps, kauri gum, and be sure to compare the size of the biggest ever kauri to Tane Mahuta.
Above all, come North and enjoy it.
