A day with Sir Bob Charles

A day spent with Sir Bob Charles – a New Zealand Golf Legend

It’s not every day that we get guests visiting us on our Construction Site.

But when a meeting was arranged to have Sir Bob Charles come out and visit the site we were building in Wainui, New Zealand, we were pretty excited. He is Golf Royalty in New Zealand and one of New Zealand’s most accredited golfers. Sir Bob Charles was the first left handed golfer to win a major championship and has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

So you can see why the Puddicombe Team felt it was a pretty special day when they had a mentor like this to visit their new project here in New Zealand.
