Higher Clatcombe, Sherborne, Dorset, DT9 4RN

Is this a record ?

Francine and 15th

New member Francine Barret joined the club at 12.45 on Thursday and enjoyed a light lunch with her playing partner, before beginning her first round at Sherborne as a member.

When Francine reached the 131 yard 15th hole she took careful aim and holed-in-one just before 4.45 on the day she joined.

Is just under 5 hours a record for the fastest hole-in-one by a new member at Sherborne ?  Or by a new member anywhere ?

Francine went to the bar after she finished her round of golf and, as tradition demands, stood everyone in the clubhouse a drink.

Well done Francine. Congratulations on your hole-in-one and the members look forward to celebrating your next golfing achievement with you.
