The odds of an amateur golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,500-1, but during 2018, four Slinfold ladies accomplished that golfing rarity.
The ‘1’s’ came in a cascade; first was Maggie Jowett on the 2nd hole during the Lady Captain’s challenge in May, this was followed by Pat Taylor on the 16th during the Club Charity event “Pink Day” in June, next was Ann Grain (again on the 16th) during a Mike Yorke Golf Academy day in July. Last but not least, the fourth one was a lady (who wishes to remain anonymous) during November’s Turkey Trot.
Outgoing Lady Captain Jeanne Coker said: “It’s been a number of years since one of our ladies made a hole-in-one at Slinfold, and yet this year we have had four and it’s been one of the highlights of an amazing year as Captain. I’m also really thrilled that we’ve raised £1,400 by the ladies section for my chosen charity, Chestnut Tree House.”
What a remarkable story – well done, Slinfold ladies, let’s see if any club during 2019 can beat this incredible feat.
