Mary’s first hole in one: Congratulations to Mary Molloy who had her first Hole in One while playing in the Christmas Hamper.

  With iron in hand she took her drive on the 5th hoping it would land somewhere close to the green. To her delight and utter amazement the ball had not only reached the green but was wedged against the flag ready to fall in. Well done Mary, what a great way to end the season!
