About previous editions…


Many thanks for a wonderful trip!

It was great to play and chat with Sir Bob and to see how consistent his shots are.

That’s something for me to work on and even though I played better than I thought I would, I still have plenty of improvement to go in this area!

I really enjoyed playing these two superb courses with the group and having dinner and lunch at the two clubrooms was a bonus, especially the personal tour of the Sir Bob Charles Room at Shirley.

Congrats to you guys for a very well organised event.

Thanks again.

PS don’t be surprised if you see my name again in the draw for next year’s trip.

I would just like to thank you, and Jennian Homes for the wonderful opportunity given to the six of us, who won the “Tee off with a Legend” competition.The whole thing was just a wonderful experience from start to finish, and Stu was the ultimate host, very generous and well organised.

I know that most of us really couldn’t believe that we had actually won a coveted spot in the competition!

Clearwater was just wonderful, a stunning course, a beautiful resort, and we had a lovely meal together in the evening. Shirley Golf Course too, was also great and I know we all really enjoyed both days and the opportunity to meet each other.

To finish the experience with a visit to Bob Charles special trophy room at Shirley, really topped the whole thing off and Sir Bob, … well, he is just the ultimate gentleman. What a great ambassador for golf that he is for all New Zealanders, always thinking about the game and how it can be bettered for the masses, a legendary great player, a role model in terms of a healthy lifestyle, and his conduct on the course is impeccable.

All in all an experience that none of us will forget, – not many people can say they have played a round with Sir Bob Charles.

I have come home with a renewed enthusiasm for my golf, believe me, I’m always keen… but if he can still shoot a par round and better in his 80’s… there is still hope for me yet.

Knocking on the wrong side of 50 these days, I keep thinking I had better hurry up if I want to improve a bit more, …. well if he can do it at his age, I think I just may still have a bit more time up my sleeve!

Thanks so much for your generosity and the opportunity of a lifetime – I’ll be working on that overswing and I’m planning on getting that handicap down a bit further yet!

Thanks again for such a great experience.

Sincerely, Tracy Bary

Thank you for the amazing two-day experience of meeting and playing with Sir Bob Charles. I am having trouble getting off cloud 9 and back to reality today!

Sir Bob is a true gentleman and it was awesome to witness first-hand his remarkable golfing ability.

He was interesting to talk to and made us feel very relaxed. It was fun to meet the other winners and we all had a very enjoyable time together.

Clearwater is a lovely venue at which to stay and both courses we played were outstanding although challenging.

Thanks again for everything the package included – flights, meals, accommodation etc. and a big thank you to Stu who looked after us so well.

I really cannot thank you enough for the incredible opportunity.

Kind regards,
Jane Pangborn

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on my sincere thanks for what was a very special occasion in my life. I enjoyed every second of my trip and it will be in my thoughts for a long time into the future

For me this was an occasion playing golf with Sir Bob Charles and Stu that without my good fortune in being a winner in this competition would quite possibly never have happened. I was most impressed with Sir Bob’s excellent playing still at this time in his playing career.

The organisation of this event was seamless and obviously had very competent people in charge. They should all be commended for this – Thanks to all

There was some discussion of if we could enter the next competition for this but from my point of view I would not enter as I would not want to take the opportunity of someone else having such a wonderful time when I have been so fortunate to have taken part in this most really great event.

Once again, thanks for everything , to everyone involved and for organising a most excellent event.

Most Kind Regards

Stu Duncan
