Happy New Year ..belated hole in one !!

Happy New Year everyone…
On this cold January morning let me take you back to a warmer day at the Boavista Golf Club last October.

Sixth hole, 180 yards uphill Graham Simon swings his trusty hybrid , balls flies straight at the flag and drops in…first hole in one in the tour’s history.
And Graham’s second hole in one in 2016 after his shot at the 7th in the Easter Cup ..also in for one. Well done Graham

Hole in one alert

Congratulations to Mary Harris, who holed in one at the 17th with her rescue club. Well done Mary!

Frank Haines’ Hole in One

Belated congratulations to Frank Haines, who recently achieved a hole in one on 2A ..his first after 38 years of endeavour and I imagine a rarity itself on this particular hole….sadly because of the view on this hole, no one saw it go in!! Just have to get another one on the 13th Frank..

Herts County Ladies G.A. & Patt Ladd’s hole in one…

Rickmansworth Ladies entered two teams for the Herts County Ladies G.A. 9 Hole Competition at Chorleywood Golf Club. There were twenty teams of three from golf clubs around Hertfordshire from both private and public clubs.

Hole in one news…

Graham Stewart made a hole in one today at the par 3 13th hole. Unfortunately, it was the only positive part of his round with 5 of the 11 stableford points on the back 9 coming on that hole!

However, it was a superb shot which rolled into the hole on the much tougher top tier of the green. Well done Graham!

And all this came on the day when big Arsenal fan Graham then saw arch rivals Spurs get hit for 6 up at Manchester City! What a day.

Hole in one for Mary!

Mary Harris recorded her first ever hole-in-one at the weekend in her match against Ann Loughman. Mary struck an 8-iron up to the back right pin position on the par 3 7th hole in her Julie Curtis Cup match.

Her yellow ball ran up the green and nestled against the flag stick, keeping Mary guessing as to how close the ball was to the hole! However, she needn’t have worried too much as upon removing the stick the ball fell into the cup for that great feeling of the ultimate golf shot. Well done Mary!

Hole in one for Gerald ..

Congratulations to Gerald Hirst on a hole-in-one on the 17th today Saturday 3rd November
Pitched on a perfect length and straight in the hole ..great shot..well done Gerald..(and thanks for the drink ).

Hole in one for Anthony Light

On a damp evening playing on his own and practising for the Club Championship we have following quote from Anthony; “On the 5th hole tonight, I hit a nice 9 iron, right on line, a perfect shot. I couldn’t believe it when I got up there though. It was in the hole! My 1st hole in one & no one there to see it. Why couldn’t it have waited ’til Sunday?!”
