Some might saying having your first hole-in-one is lucky, and many don’t even achieve that during their golfing career, but 8 in a lifetime, well that’s just plain greedy! News hot off the press is that June Salt from Bognor had her 8th Hole-in-One on the 2nd hole at Bognor Regis GC on Thursday 6th June whilst playing in the Past Lady Captain’s Cup!
Well played to June Salt – it may have been an expensive round of drinks afterwards!
