A fortnightly golf podcast from New Zealand with hosts - Tom Hyde and Brendan Telfer.
The Rangatira Golf Club
What’s unique about the Rangitira Golf Club? Our hosts speak with greenskeeper and club record holder (65) Richie Nimmo about a feature on the 18th hole unlike any in the rest of the country. As well, they find out what’s going on at the club and how they managed an upgrade, demanded by council, that cost them $150,000.
Did Patrick Reed cheat?
New Zealand golf legend, John Lister, joins our hosts to kick off the 2021 season by looking at the controversy that developed at the Farmers Insurance Open, in California, when Patrick Reed picked up his embedded ball. As well, Telfer and Hyde look at what’s coming up in 2021 and, with Lister, who to keep an eye on among young Kiwi players coming through the ranks.
2020: Was it All Bad for Golf?
Our hosts look back at 2020 and consider the impact of Covid-19 on golf in New Zealand and around the world. Certainly professional tours lost their galleries and it was strange watching television coverage without the usual fan reactions. But then recreational golf experienced a mini-boom in the second half of the year. Meanwhile, individual stars had their ups and down, none more so than Tiger Woods.
New Sir Bob Charles Biography
Our hosts conduct an extended conversation with Geoff Saunders, the author of the first comprehensive biography of New Zealand’s greatest golfer, Sir Bob Charles, and to review the book and find out why it took 15 years to complete.
How To Design a Golf Course
Greg Turner, once New Zealand’s best player on the European PGA Tour, has become New Zealand’s foremost golf course designer.
What’s Up At Muriwai?
Muriwai Beach Golf Club is one of the most rustic, charming golf links in New Zealand. With the Tasman Sea lapping at its shoreline, the club has overcome some serious(and expensive) re-routing and is today one of the most successful clubs in the country with a sold out membership and waiting list. Our hosts speak with long time President Malcolm Cooper and GM Andrew Jackson.
