On Friday 1st June Portlethen Golf Club member, Donald Smith, won the North East of Scotland Seniors District Golf Championship with a two over par gross score of 72 at McDonald Golf Club in Ellon, which is on the outskirts of Aberdeen. During his winning round Donald also achieved a Hole in One at the 255 yard Par 4 14th Hole at Ellon with a driver. Donald's playing partners were Andrew Ironside (Fraserburgh) and Alan Anderson (Duff House Royal).
This was Donald’s sixth hole in one but his first ever at a Par 4. So, a Hole in One, an Albatross and a District Championship all in the same day was quite a round of golf.
