Anthony Doyle, the professional, was extremely friendly and accommodating. I was fortunate enough to play with an ex-professional at the club, a contemporary of Bob Charles, the club patron. The course was in fine condition, the greens which had been set up for a club competition were the fastest I have ever played. Members were friendly. The wind is changeable at Christchurch and could be a real factor. The greens were subtle and true, but oh so fast. The Christchurch Club has a long history and will continue to hold major NZ events. Well worth playing, highly recommended.
