Looks like mattginella and alanshipnuck are embarking on what might be the greatest golf trip one can take. Throwback to golfing at jackspointqt two years ago in Queenstown NZ. Although its not on their itinerary Jacks Point and Queenstown in general is a must stop if youre going to visit New Zealand.
QUEENSTOWN. Words cannot truly describe the scenery surrounding this quaint town. It is easily one of my favorite places in the world. The town has changed a little bit in the five years since my last visit with new upscale stores more signs in Chinese and more boating options for the lake to name a few things but the charm is still there. . We had an extra day planned during our stay in Queenstown so Amanda and I went up with the gondola to the Skyline Queenstown which offers the best views of the area. We enjoyed a picnic lunch at the top and then raced around the luge tracks a few times. . While taking in the view from the top I had noticed the golf course across the bay and decided I wanted to play it. This is significant because just last year in May 2018 I had back surgery to correct a herniated disc. It took the following eight months for me to go through physical therapy and to strengthen my back to play again. I played three rounds this spring but decided to stop after having a setback in May where I was confined to my bed due to new back pain. I wasnt going to let back pain prevent Amanda and I from going on the trip we are on now. I spent the entire summer working on my back legs and core to make sure I wouldnt have any issues traveling. . It will be hard for me to play a more beautiful course than the one at the Queenstown Golf Club. If this wouldve been my last round ever what better place than this I decided to take it easy and play the front nine and Amanda joined me. For not picking up sticks in five months I was pleased to play bogey golf AND I was able to walk just fine the next day. The hard work in the gym over the summer was all worth it -Mike
