Description

This is golf and life from Down Under brought to you by Andy and Michael.

New Zealand is not just all about rugby, hobbits and unbelievable scenery down here. We go absolutely nuts for the game of golf. For a start, there are more courses per capita here than anywhere else in the world... except maybe for Scotland. Also, have you heard of epic courses such as Tara Iti, Kauri Cliffs or The Hills? Yep, those are ours. How about Ko, Fox, Charles, and the Big Cat's former caddie? Ours! We just can't get enough of the game and we want to share our take on it with you: GOLFIZZ of the world!
