It was another eventful week at Margate Country Club.
Jane Davies’ golfing week got off to a flying start when she hit her tee shot directly into the hole at the 2nd during the Ladies competition on Tuesday, which was “Sandi’s Surprise Alliance”.
This was Jane’s first hole-in-one and knowing her, not the last. She and her partners, Lexley Lewis and Evelyn Burls, ended in second place for the day on 101 points.
Winning the competition on 117 points was Wandra Bothma, Beryl Williamson and Maureen Pitcher 117.
Only five days later, Ivan Curlewis also had a hole-in-one during a league match, also at the 2nd hole.
This is Ivan’s first hole-in-one at Margate Country Club, after playing the course for 54 years, but his seventh in total.
