Million To One Ace

What are the chances of an Ace occurring on the same hole of a charity golf day two years running?  Some would say impossible and the odds point to more than a million to 1.

Stuart Sykes of Scarborough defied the odds when he took his tee shot in gale like conditions, against a back wind, 7 iron in hand, at North Cliffe Golf Club on 29th June. The ball took a straight descent towards the 15th hole; an audience of fellow players who were about to tee off on the 3rd hole had stopped in their tracks, with their mouths wide open. The ball rolled straight in for a hole in one… not again, they couldn’t believe it!

Stuart, 17 handicapper, could not believe his luck either, what were the chances of that happening? With an audience to cheer his success too, he couldn’t believe it, a hole-in-one!

Success indeed, as thanks to Worldwide Hole ‘N One, Prize Indemnity Insurers, who insured the hole-in-one prize package for the organisers, Mary and Malcolm Woodhall of Scarborough.  The 15th hole had an amazing holiday at The Meridien Penina Golf Resort in Portugal as Stuart’s just reward for his hole-in-one. Last year it was John Edmund who struck his ace with a 5 iron to win the same Portugal Golf Trip, which he enjoyed very much.  So two Portugal Golf Trips Won, just a year apart, on the same hole, on the same day!

It’s all in the name of fundraising for Mrs Mary Woodhall with the help of her husband Mr Malcolm, they have passionately given their time for over 15 years to fundraise for Marie Cure Cancer Care, who aim to support all patients and families affected by cancer. They are always looking to get every element of their events sponsored by local companies, from the course, the catering right through to the hole-in-one insurance. Ferroli Boilers Ltd kindly sponsored the prize package this year, so are over the moon with what their kind donation has given to this annual event.

This year, they managed to raise just under £7,000 for the charity that they passionately support, providing an unforgettable memory for all involved and the day will no doubt will be talked about in the clubhouse at North Cliffe Golf Club for many years to come.

The Meridien golf holiday is just one of the free bonus prizes offered as part of our hole in one insurance package.  For more information about how your golf day could benefit complete a hole-in-one proposal form for a quick quotation.
