Hole In One

Ilish McGing

- Castlebar 6 132 yd 9th September 2018

Playing in Rowena Kilkelly's Lady President's Day I Played with two other lovely and long time Lady Members of Castlebar Golf Club Kitty Grimes and Derval Molloy. On our 6th hole a challenging Par 3 measuring 132 yards, the pin was placed on the back right side of the green, protected by a bunker, a water hazard and on the side of hill (a Mad Harry position}. With the breeze slightly favouring me, my rescue club would in hindsight appear to have been the perfect choice with my ball landing 15 yards from the flag, it hopped twice and nestled beautifully between the pin and cup just before dropping much to the delight of the three of us. It made our day. When I came into the19th hole I was greeted with a great cheer from the all the Club Members. As confirmed by our lovely Lady Captain Cora Mulroy it is the only Hole In One this year 2018 by a Lady Member of Castlebar.
