The first Men’s Competition on the 2013 Spring temporary course produced two Holes-In-One. The first ultimate shot was achieved by Alan Lindsey in morning play at the temporary Par 3 15th. An hour later Jim Leuver repeated the shot at the regular Par 3 16th. The Club is able to formally recognise the Hole-In-One at the 16th but not so at the temporary 15th.
A very active member who plays three times each week, Jim plays off 16 and his name appears regularly on the Nearest The Pin prize list. His 7 wood hit to the 16th provided his first Hole-In-One with an associated cheer and fall to the ground. Jim maintained his composure to score two points on the 17th but his 5 points for one shot at 16 was the highlight of his 17 points back 9.
The Hole-In-One entitles Jim to 6 golf balls, a bottle of his preferred drink, mounting of the ball and an official Hole-In-One certificate all sponsored by the Club. The Hole-In-One certificated will be presented at the Men’s Christmas party.
Great effort Jim, congratulations and well done.
While not able to be formally recognised, Alan’s result at 15 – 5 points for one shot – was achieved at the hole supported by a major club sponsor and worth a $250 prize.
Alan also plays three times each week and has been playing good Golf over the past month, reducing his handicap to 14 and taking home three winner / runner up vouchers. Alan is a regular on the Nearest The Pin prize list.
Alan retained composure after his Hole-In-One and made 3 points at 16. The 8 points 2 hole total provided a major component of his back 9 24 points which set up Division 1 Runner Up for the day.
The sponsor will provide Alan with a non official Hole-In-One certificate and the $250 prize at the Men’s Christmas Party.
Terrific effort Alan to hit the Hole-In-One shot, well done.
Congratulations to Peter Hanley, a visitor from The Colonial, who scored an outstanding 50 points. The full competition results are available through the on-line results.
