Hole-In-Ones & Scoring Records



Though Basil, Leroy and Felix have been excruciatingly close more than once  and Leroy has holed out from 120m in the fairway at Barny, no Gent has ever aced a hole in a GWT Major.

So far……

Hole-in-Ones in GWT Championship history


However, two Gentlemen have had Hole-in-Ones whilst playing exhibition matches for the lower level competitions.

Hole-in-Ones by Gentlemen, off Tour

1. Jig – 1990, Jubilee GC. A skinny ground-grubber 8 iron. He’d already turned his back on the shot and thrown his club and had a tanty about it, before PLOP! in it went.

2. Cravo – 2017, NWBGC.  A nice fade 7 iron to the 145m Par 3 7th Hole which landed a couple foot left of the pin, hopped once, spun back and right into the hole. The crowd (Bas, Darvy) and Player went wild!!!

In a strange coincidence, this is the exact same hole (though re-modelled) where some fellow students played a trick on a 15 year old Cravo by popping his ball in the hole on the blind par 3 so he would think he had a hole-in-one. Then 28 years later it happened for real on the very same hole.

  1. It is looking like another superb year of golfing prowess in the GWT. Thanks treasurer for keeping the memories alive.
    Just for the record Jig scored a hole in one at Jubilee GC on the par 3 8th hole which is about 150m in 1990.
