Holes in one are a rare occurrence on the golf course at Cape Turnagain in Herbertville. Only two have been scored on the new course, one by John Sedcole more than 10 years ago and the second by Sue Barnett on Sunday, August 28.

Both were scored on Queen St.

However, both these players have achieved the perfect shot previously - John in Dannevirke and Sue at Porangahau.

Needless to say there was a huge "yahoo'' from Sue's playing group as they watched her ball roll into the hole, followed by an equally large shout as the shot was celebrated in the clubhouse later that evening.
