Faye Seed scored a hole in one on the 3rd. She took a three wood off the tee, pitched on the green where it ran out of sight. Then, when she couldnt find the ball, decided to look in the hole and there it was.

Such was her delight that everyone on the course heard her shrieks of joy. She phoned her husband to bring money for drinks, but when he arrived he was very pleased to find that a flagon of wine had been put aside for the first hole-in-one of the season! She was presented with a gallon bottle of wine courtesy of Rioja.
