Since issue 1 back in 2012, MG have always listed all the holes-in-ones we get to hear about from the Midlands golfers in our Pinboard section. Many great talestoo we’ve come across.
Caitlin – Ingestre Park – May
With the kind support of a local business called Bespoke Sport Framing, we have extended the coverage to a full section in the magazine and a full website page right here too, devoted to golf’s most special achievement.
Even better than that, Bespoke Sport Framing are offering a special monthly prize to one lucky reader who gets an ace and takes a picture of the feat and sends it in to us. Or ones we find on social media, we’re good at that.
The monthly winner will receive a lovely memento of their hole-in-one like this, our May winner, an ace by Wrekin GC senior Derek Burrows . If you can provide a scorecard as well, it’ll make it look even better.
If you get a hole-in-one, take a photo, and send it to us. Dropping us a line on social media @MidlandsGolfer is the best way but you can also email Phil on email@example.com if you wish. We’ll run a draw at the end of each month to find a winner, but every ace we hear about will be included too.
Bespoke Sport Framing are based in Cannock, Staffs and produce frames for all types of sporting memorabilia – they are also producing some special creations this year for the talented kids on the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook @spfruk . To find out more give them a call on 01543 898336 and speak to Scott.
If you’re not quite lucky enough to be one of our prize winners, Bespoke Sport Framing will be happy to put together a special frame for your ace. Prices start from just £25 which includes postage and packing.
Some of our latest hole in one contenders to win a frame at the end of June – the first two are both juniors from the talented team at Beau Desert – Ruby and Louis are both pictured here at the club following their aces both achieved in May.
Another talented junior is pictured below….Many congratulations to Djalece van der Merwe, a 14 year old golfer with a handicap of 14 from Telford Golf Club. Djalece, who also represents the Shropshire girl’s junior scratch team, hit an incredible hole in one on the 16th hole at her local club during a ladies competition in early May. Her tee shot on the 138 yard par 3 hit the flag and the ball dropped straight in! Here is Djalece with her very lucky ball!! This is definitely a keeper…
Here’s a challenge – The flying Aces – how far away can you go?
You only need to be a Midlander to get in the section and qualify for the prize – you can shoot an ace on any course in the world if you want.
MG reader Mark Ashton, a member at Ingestre Park in Stafford and also this year’s Staffordshire Seniors Captain, we are setting a new challenge. We’re looking for achievers who can beat this feat in terms of the furthest away hole-in-one this year.
Paul had a hole-in-one last month, whilst on holiday on the amazing South Island of New Zealand. It was on the 11th hole at Hanmer Springs GC, which is 160 yards in length.
What made his hole out even more special, is that it was his first full round of golf since having his left hip replaced at the end of September!
Get in touch and make sure you take a pic too – if you can get one in the hole and further away from home than the 12,000 (approx) miles Mark was!
Get in touch
All of the above, and a few more too are in the draw to win a frame at the end of June, we’ll publish the winner in the July issue and on this page too. If you manage one – take a photo by the hole side, keep the scorecard if it’s a scoring round and let us know about it via the usual channels #itsallabouttheace
