TIM Rees had an expensive bar bill last weekend when, at the fifth, he hit a hole-in-one at Freshwater Bay Golf Club’s annual golfer/non-golfer event.
The event overall was a great success with more than 50 people taking part.
The standard of the non-golfers’ putting was very high, and ranged from an average of 1.6 putts per hole only up to 2.6. Beryl Stimson won the nearest-the-pin prize, Wendy Rees and Luke Brett shared the lowest number of putts prize with 16.
The best combined golfer/non-golfer score was 32, scored by Alex and Sarah Harmer.
Meanwhile, the top scores in the club’s Jim Sleight Trophy were brothers David and Derek Wright.
Both scored 43 points (gross 2 under par for Derek), which meant the overall winner had to be decided on countback.
Over the back nine, both scored 22 points, over the back six, they both scored 14 points.
They were finally separated on the back three holes with Derek’s seven points beating his brother’s score by 1.
Keith Kimber was third with 39 points.
