Is this a record hole in one? Audrey Barker of Dale Hill got her second hole in one in their annual Woosnam Plate competition, played on the tough Woosnam course on Championship Day at the tender age of just 83! She got her hole in one with the 7 wood from her very first set of clubs (the original 5 wood is still there too!) It’s a Regency 7 wood with a steel shaft, just the distance for the par 3 12th hole!
Audrey started playing at Dale Hill back in the 1970’s shortly after it opened because she and her husband wanted a hobby they could share. Her handicap at its lowest was 21, and she continues to play weekly for the exercise and to stay healthy. A lesson here for the rest of us Sussex youngsters…….!
