I know we are into the third week of January already, but Happy New Year to you all! May 2018 be a peaceful, healthy and prosperous one for you. We are later than normal getting the newsletter out this month so it will be brief, as we have had visitors since early January. Marian's Brother and wife has been visiting us from the UK, the first time for 25 years!
Another visitor I have spent time with this month is our ground operator in Hawaii, who is visiting New Zealand for the first time. He arranges all our golf bookings and transport over on the islands and as he is based on the Pride of America cruise ship, which we also use, he is in an ideal situation to help us. You may have seen Kapalua's The Plantation course on TV a few weekends ago when the Champions tournament was being played there. Our Hawaii Golf Cruise this September plays on the same course, so you will be able to see just how hard the course is for yourself if you join the tour!
