Two Hole in Ones at Bottle Lake Open

Posted by: on 7 March 2017

The six par 3's at Bottle Lake are usually not as easy as they would seem, but the calm conditions provided players with the opportunity to score well.  Not only did 53 players record two's over the tournament there was also a rare feat with two hole in ones achieved on the day.  Catherine Bell played the perfect shot to 9th green landing just short of the pin and then bouncing in for her hole in one while in the men's field Jacob Roberts had a hole in one on the sixth hole.  Both Catherine and Jacob finished runners up in their respective Women's and Men's Open fields.

This was the first year that women were included in the tournament which was a great initiative with 20 women competing in the event along with 56 players in the men's field.

Juliana Hung was in hot form not only winning the tournament by a convincing margin but also recording a 6 under 66 which was a course record in the afternoon along with her morning score of 72 she finished six shots clear of Catherine Bell with Hillary O'Connor in third place on 156.  Olive Tapu won the best net on 146.

In the men's field it was Hiroki Miya who played consistantly throughout the day with scores of 68 and 70 to win by four shots from Jacob Roberts who finished second on a countback to Marcel Boet both on 142.  The net was won by Aaron Reid on 136. 

Bottle Lake locals had something to cheer about with Aaron Neill taking out Division 2 with 147, over fellow local Mike Davidson on 149.  Mike however had a winning net of 133 and collected the overall cup for best net.
