Owner and Founder of Sleepyhead Royal Auckland
Today I was privileged to play a course that is Royal to Auckland which is why it is called Royal Auckland. Thanks to my sponsor this week Sleepyhead, “Graeme Turner”. This will be where the Pre – Qualifying will be for the New Zealand Open is on Monday after the New Zealand PGA Championship finishes on the Sunday.
Royal Auckland was in fantastic condition and was exciting to play well around this old course while hearing the many stories Graeme had to offer about this club. I just want to thank my mate Josh Ingram for a good test of golf in a game of skins. Close game but we both know who didn’t have to pull out their wallet for lunch. None the less a great test for the next 4 days to come. Good luck to all. 1st round tee time is 9.20am.
