On 29 January 2019 the cruise ship Azamara Quest visited Nelson NZ.
On board were a large number of very keen golfers from the northern hemisphere who were touring Australia and New Zealand.
They had played the likes of Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers, and Royal Wellington and they chose to come to Nelson to get the “True Links Experience”.
Suffice to say they loved the course and had a wonderful time. Below is feedback we have received.
“Message to Club President Derek Drysdale, and Sean Riordan and Nick Loach in the Pro Shop.
We just wanted to drop you both a line to thank you most sincerely for the amazing hospitality you and your members showed us today whilst playing your golf course as part of the Perry Golf organization. You provided us a guide, Graeme Wilson, to show us around the course and provide us with historical explanations of the course and the surrounding areas as well as excelent advise of where to “try” and hit our shots. We have been privileged to be guests on a very large number of courses arround the world, but no one has ever provided us with a walking guide to help us. Please thank Graeme for his time and excellent advise. Both Gayle and I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it’s natural links design along with excellent greens, so please thank your head green keeper. We will remember our day for the rest of our lives and hope one day we can return.
Thank you again
Michael Zelley and Gayle Levy UK and USA”
Thank you for the feedback Michael and Gayle. We are glad you enjoyed it!
Nelson Golf Club would like to thank Perry Golf organisation for choosing Nelson Links as a tour destination.
We look forward to sharing our “True Links Experience” with more tour groups in the future.
