There was a major highlight at the Kempsey Golf Club last week in the Thursday Open Single Stableford (28.1.21) event with two players recording a Hole in One on two different par 3 holes.
Firstly on the 130mt par 3 3rd hole it was Chris Hudson who recorded the great feat and then on the par 3 151mt 8th hole it was Barry Cantrill who recorded the super shot of the day much to the excitement of his playing partners when they saw the result of the shot.
Congratulations to both players from everyone at the club.
