Day 11: Play Christchurch Golf Club, a.k.a. Shirley!

Remember the 1980 movie Airplane with Leslie Nielsen as Dr. Rumack and Robert Hays as Ted Striker?

Dr. Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?

Ted Striker: Surely you can’t be serious.

Dr. Rumack: I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.

Shirley is the name of a golf course and I am serious too-she is a hidden jewel, perfect topography and desing and one of the best I have played!

From the Christchurch Golf Club, a.k.a. Shirley’s website:

The Christchurch Golf Club has a proud history that dates back to 1873. The club is the second oldest in New Zealand and the fifth oldest outside the United Kingdom. The Club Patron is former Club Champion Sir Bob Charles, New Zealand’s most successful professional golfer.
