The Tuross Head Country Club par 3 is not an easy hole to play. Only a small section of the green is visible from the tee and the approach in front of the green reminds players of the moguls you see in Olympic skiing events.

There is a line of large Norfolk pines marking an out of bounds area along the right hand side.

The left hand side of the narrow approach to the hole is also guarded by thick bushes that seem to attract balls.  The green is not very big and the layout encourages balls to roll into a bunker or gravitate down a slope onto the adjacent fairway.

It is a challenge and yet  Stephen Swanbury, scored a hole in one during the  Saturday October 12 competition and now has a permanent record of proof.

The presentation by Michael Godford, owner of the Tuross Head Motel, who is not only a keen golfer himself  but also sponsors this hole for those who are skilled or lucky enough to score a hole in one.

Congraulations to StephenSwanbury and thanks to Michael Godford of the Tuross Motel for his  support.
