Last Saturday 17 March an extraordinary thing happened. There were three hole-in-one's at Bottle Lake Golf Club on the day!
Shayne Dwyer, Tony Ermerins, and Club Manager Clare Pitt were playing in the Blumsky Cup - a Canadian Foursome mixed pairs competition. The holes involved were the 6th (141m off the mens blue tees and 128m off yellow for ladies), and the 16th which is 120m off the mens blue tees. Clare Pitt got hers at about 12pm on the 6th hole, and Tony Ermerins at 1.30pm also on the 6th hole. Shayne Dwyer got his on the 16th hole at about 3pm. Shayne used a 9 iron for his shot, Clare a driver, and Tony a 9 iron as well For Tony and Clare it was their first, and for Shayne his second.
Celebrations went long into the night as the three "shouts" kept bar staff busy.
Talk about luck of the Irish - tt must have been because of St Paddy's Day!!!
