You will travel from New Plymouth by coach through rich Taranaki countryside to the relaxed and picturesque Pungarehu Golf Course. Your round will be an ambrose tournament with some of the local players also joining in. Following the end of play it will be time to adjourn to the local Coastal Rugby Club for further refreshments. Here Mark Robinson who started his rugby career at this club, played for the All Blacks and is now an IRB Board Member, will share some stories about heartland rugby in particular. Your coach will then transport you back to New Plymouth
