4) Play golf among the wires
The Rarotongan Golf Club has what has to rate as one of the most hard-case courses around.
Why? Because if you play 18 holes by taking on the nine-hole course twice, you are hitting your ball through communications masts and wires on 10 of the holes. The rules say that if your ball hits any of these, you must replay your shot without penalty.
But it doesn’t really matter – all those masts and wires simply add to the fun. In fact, there are many who can claim to have legitimately scored a hole-in-one, even after they’ve had one or more balls ricochet out of bounds.
Also fun is the fact that some of the fairways are shared by golfers playing in opposite directions, which means you do need to keep an eye on who is hitting where. And not take anything too seriously.
