On Don's bucket list of things to do before leaving New Zealand was to golf on one of the golf courses.
His dream came true on August 6, 2012 when the Stake President George Harvey (who is member of the Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club invited Don, President Kezerian and Tom McVey to play golf with him. This is a links course so it was a little different course for him. He had to rent clubs and had to play without his golf shoes. It wasn't his best score but he loved every minute of it.
