“Let’s have some fun here. See this as an opportunity not a threat.”

- Michael Campbell during his US Open Win

Michael Campbell is one of New Zealand’s greatest ever golfers and only other major winner alongside Sir Bob Charles. In 2005 Michael won the US Open beating Tiger Woods and best friend Retief Goosen. He returns to the game this year to play the 100th edition of the New Zealand Golf Open, and to compete on the Senior Golf Tour.

It was such a wonderful experience to have Michael and his beautiful fiance Gunnell stay with at our luxury lodge in Te Arai and to share his passion for the game of golf and giving back. And also his passion for cooking and life in general.

“Everyone has a talent. I believe everyone on the planet is talented at something. It could be music, art, sport, business, cooking. Everyone has a particular talent on this planet, it I just a matter of finding it. It is like walking or driving a car. You’re going to make mistakes on the way. But you’ve got to find your passion. I was lucky enough to find my passion at Golf at a young age… everyone has something that’s very special. And all it is about is digging in their and finding it and (in return) you will find your way.”
