Amateurs celebrate consecutive aces at The Lakes

The Lakes Golf Club is set to host some of the world&aposs best golfers in a fortnight but the club&aposs members are putting on their own show before the big guns arrive. In an extraordinary feat, two players in the same group recorded consecutive aces at the 124 metre Par 3 9th hole in the weekly Member s Wednesday competition The two players were Jonathan Cook from Beverley Park Golf Club who has a handicap of 9 and Lakes member Peter Hough who has a handicap of 11. Some international reports suggest the chance of this occurring at 17,000,000-to-1 (a better chance winning the lottery in some circumstances) The group of four played the hole in 5-under par total (hole-in-one, hole-in-one, birdie, par). The two players both used a 7-iron on the 124m hole.
