Instant success at British Coffee Associationâ€™s golf day
Hampshire golfer Richard Davies managed to find the perfect blend at the British Coffee Association’s golf day at the Temple Golf Club, Berkshire, when he landed a £10,000 prize for a hole-in-one.
Fourteen-handicapper Davies, a member at Worldham Golf Club, in Alton, struck his ace on the 212-yard, eighth to take home the prize, which was sponsored by AGC Commodity Store Ltd, a member of the British Coffee Association.
It was the sixth successive year that AGC has sponsored the range of hole-in-one prizes on offer on the day – all covered by hole-in-one insurance from Worldwide Hole ‘N One.
Davies said: “The ball rolled out of sight and I thought it was gone, and then it re-appeared to trickle towards the hole and in it went!”
Assistant club secretary Stan Edwards was amazed and added: “This is only the third hole-in-one we have had this year at the club, but never on this hole.”
