Portsea golf course was presented at its best for the first round of the club championships last Saturday. In a packed field Charlie Robbins put his competitors on notice with a hole-in-one on the 13th. It was Charlie’s first ace at Portsea. On Tuesday in the men’s competition Bill Nettlefold stunned himself and his playing partners with a hole-in-one on the same hole.

Just to prove that you don’t need local knowledge Val Cooper from Rosebud Country Club was excited to ace the 16th. Val was a guest at the Portsea Women’s Guest Day, which was held in perfect conditions and followed by a lunch which received many compliments from members and the guests from the many clubs participating.

As is customary at Portsea, the club shouts the field a drink when a hole-in-one is scored so it was a busy week in the Members’ bar.
